BE AN INFORMED FLYER!There is another operator who is making false and misleading representations that they are the only helicopter operator permitted to fly in Glacier National Park. This is is false. Not only are there other, much larger, operators permitted to fly in the park, non-commercial helicopter flights are not restricted, photo flights, and tours above a trigger altitude are not subject to restrictions under the National Parks Air Tour Management Act. Be informed!
We fly the State-of-the art of the Helicopters |We operate the MD 520 Notar which is our state-of-the-art, eco-friendly helicopter. We specialize in perfecting the aerial tour adventure. As aerial film specialists, we know the places, times and that special light that creates those jaw-dropping aerial scenes on TV. So when we create the perfect aerial tour we head for those places that others don't go. We fly the latest model and most advanced technology helicopter in the region. We pride ourselves in being good eco stewards and are considerate of others' experience in the area so we don't fly in those areas that impact visitors with helicopter noise, like Logan Pass Visitor Center.

We had a great time! Gary was able to accommodate our large group and took us on a beautiful ride around Great Northern Mountain. The views were fantastic, the helicopter was smooth and quiet, and Gary was a fun tour guide. We'd highly recommend this experience for anyone looking to see parts of the park not easily accessed by trail, or looking for an adventure a bit outside the usual.

What a great addition to our trip! Gary is a fantastic pilot with great equipment, and knows the area well. The hour trip was well worth the money. We definitely will be coming back in the future!
