Phenomenal Experience

for Whitefish, Montana

We had a very phenomenal experience. As someone who worked on helicopters in the military, I can say that the quality of the helicopter itself, as well as Gary’s flying, was absolutely exceptional. We felt safe and well taken care of. If you want to see gorgeous mountain peaks, glaciers, waterfalls and more, this is a “must do.” I recommend the full hour. We are so glad we found and went with Glacier Aviation!

Our Fleet of Aircraft
WE FLY STATE-OF-THE-ART HELICOPTERS AND AIRPLANES!

We operate the MD 520 Notar which is our state-of-the-art, eco-friendly helicopter and we also operate the Cessna 207. The Cessna 207 "air limo" seats up to 7 passengers and the MD520 seats up to 4 passengers.

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 aircraft noise, like Logan Pass Visitor Center. If you need more reasons to book your tour with us here are 10 more good reasons.

Gregg Sinnett Tour Group

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.

Beyond Words, How Beautiful this Trip is!

for Kalispell, Montana

This is an adventure you will remember forever. The pilots, Jim and Gary, are very calm and professional and take you on an amazing route (in the 1-hour tour) over Hungry Horse Reservoir, then over the peaks and lakes in the southern, middle, and northwestern parts of Glacier National Park. I am very nervous about heights, but Jim the pilot's calm demeanor allowed me to relax and enjoy my first helicopter ride! BOOK THIS TRIP TODAY!! You'll be transported figuratively and literally.
