Best Views of Glacier

Five Star RatingGary is an experienced, knowledgeable and personable pilot. Not to mention an excellent tour guide. It was a beautiful day. The visibility was perfect, windows were clean, you could probably see as far as 70+ miles in every direction. It wasn’t cramped and more than enough room to stretch your legs in the back two seats. If your planning a trip to Glacier National Park, I’m m sure seeing it from hiking the trails would suffice. Why not live a little and experience more of it from an aerial view!? It’s definitely a once in a life time experience that you will never forget. Would strongly recommend Glacier Aviation Services 100% of the time. You won’t regret it.

Anniversary Adventure

Five Star RatingWhat a way to celebrate our 47th Anniversary!! A fabulous experience that exceeded expectations. The views were spectacular. A MUST do for a Glacier visit. Gary was so clear with instructions prior to the flight. There were no surprises!! It was obvious we were dealing with competent professionals. Ramsey was an incredible pilot who gave great narratives of what were we’re viewing as well as being mindful of this special place. I am prone to motion sickness. The team, aware of this, picked a mild route so I had zero issues with turbulence. Most importantly we felt safe and knew we were in good hands from start to finish. Even Will was helpful in getting us in and out of the gate. Two thumbs up!! I totally recommend the Glacier team for anyone thinking of an adventure.

A Dream Come True!

Five Star RatingBreathtaking views, waterfalls, crystal clear lakes and glaciers don’t even begin to describe the beauty. We had a wonderful experienced pilot, and we will be booking another trip soon! Treat yourself with the longer tour, so worth it!

One for the Books!

Five Star RatingThis was the best tour I have ever done. Would love to do it again. The views are amazing from the air, you can experience so much more of the area than from the ground.

Grand Tetons Memories!

Five Star RatingAs a Luxury Leisure travel advisor, I reached out to Gary at Glacier Aviation Services to plan a memorable day for my client’s to see the Grand Tetons from Big Sky, MT.

Glaciers from the Sky with Gary

Five Star RatingWe booked online and received a call from Gary. He said weather conditions were perfect at the time so we switched our booking and he met us in an hour for the flight. He said visibility was great and flying conditions don’t get any better. He has a very clean hanger… . The flight was great and he was so knowledgeable about the area and was caring to make sure my partner and I were doing well throughout the flight. It was my partner’s first helicopter flight and she felt very comfortable and we both were able to get such a better sense of the area via air. If you want breathtaking and unique photos of the mountains and glaciers, by air is the best option! The photos you take are ready-made for framing once you get home. It was a great way to kick off our trip. I have personally been on several helicopters and Gary did a great job of giving us a smooth and knowledgeable ride! We did a one-hour flight around 1 pm in the afternoon. You can feel confident in his abilities and knowledge of flying! Talking through the headset makes you feel like part of the crew, and adds to the overall cool aviation experience. We both highly recommend!!!

Amazing Experience!!

Five Star RatingWhat an incredible experience!! I went with my fiance, 7-month-old baby girl, and best friend. Got to take as many pictures as I wanted! Learned so much about the area, the mountains, and their names. If you want a positive experience, go fly around and especially for the first time in a helicopter… these guys are the way to go!! Much better than a plane!! Our baby girl fell asleep heading back but the experience didn’t bother her in the slightest!! Amazing experience! Family-friendly staff! Will definitely go back to these guys!! 100% recommend!!!

Ultimate Montana Grandeur !

Five Star RatingOur autumn flight yesterday over the Flathead Valley and Glacier National Park with Gary Kauffman of Glacier Aviation, Kalispell, Montana was a thrill of a lifetime and the highlight of our October!
My husband and I always thought that Montana was so incredibly beautiful from the ground view, we thought how could Montana be even more amazing? Well, now we know! Yesterday’s helicopter flight introduced both my husband and me to another exclusive level of breathtaking, majestic Montana grandeur!
Thank you Glacier Aviation and Gary Kauffman for your professional, comfortable, and safe aviation services!
We’re already planning to fly with you again soon! Thank you for such an amazing experience! We highly recommend taking a forever memory flight with Glacier Aviation!

Glacier Aviation Has Mastered the Art of Flightseeing!

Five Star RatingGlacier Aviation has certainly mastered the art of flightseeing. We had a spectacular experience from nose up to touch down. Gary is a highly skilled pilot, and also very knowledgeable of the area, pointing out highlights and sharing interesting stories. Seeing Glacier National Park from the air offers a unique perspective that you don’t get from the ground. Certainly a bucket list experience that I’m sooo happy I did.

Breathtaking Experience

Five Star RatingFlightseeing over Glacier National Park has been our dream for a long time. We’ve hiked in the mountains a great deal but wanted to see a different perspective. Was it ever worth it! From the breathtaking scenery to the highly skilled and super kind pilot, we had a trip we’ll never forget. Thank you Gary for taking us up. We’ll be back!

Cyndi M | Bellingham, Washington | Tripadvisor Review | May 29, 2024
Great Trip With a Master Pilot

Five Star RatingWhen the snow in Glacier National Park prevented us from driving far into the park, we turned to Glacier Aviation to take the two of us on a one-hour helicopter trip over a large portion of the park. As a former pilot, I was impressed with Gary’s focus on safety and refusal to fly if the weather was not conducive to a safe flight. The helicopter trip was perfect under his flying and allowed us to see the vast grandeur of one of our country’s most beautiful parks. We’d go again in a heart beat.

Tim and Carole | Miami, Florida | Tripadvisor Review | May 30, 2024
On Top of the World!

Five Star RatingGary was a first-class pilot. He made our whole family so comfortable. Seeing Glacier from the air really put a bow on our trip to Montana.

An Amazing Perspective

Five Star RatingNot being a frequent helicopter flyer, I was nervous to book this trip , but felt seeing the area from the air would give me a deeper understanding of the geography, geology. Thus company , it’s people, their professionalism in all aspects, helped me abandon my concerns and really enjoy the flight . Our pilot gave us enough commentary to make it interesting, but didn’t drone on with boring chatter.

Since I am prone to motion sickness, I took a child’s dose of Dramamine and wore the acupuncture bands on my wrists. The pilot knew how to keep the flight steady and pleasant , and I had no problems. Easy to take photos from , that copter is tiny , but my 6’2” (230) husband fit into the back seat. There was a restroom at the hangar nearby, and instructions for finding it were detailed and accurate.

I’d do it again in a heartbeat!

GLACIER GARY IS SAFE and SMART. What a trip!!!!!
Five Star Rating
The national park, the chopper, the prices – are all amazing… but what is better is Gary, the owner. This gentleman took care of my group at the St Regis level of communication and hospitality. He cares about safety most but a close second is making sure you are having a great time. I feel very lucky to have done business with Glacier Aviation Services.
Blake Thompson | St. Petersburg, FL | Tripadvisor Review | July 6, 2023

Matt Williams | Denver, Colorado | Google Review | June 6, 2023

Five Star RatingMy wife and Army buddy whom I’ve known for over 40 years booked a one-hour helicopter flight over Glacier Park and the mountains over the Jewel Basin. Gary was our pilot. His knowledge of the mountains, glaciers, and lakes was outstanding. The views were spectacular. You will never see the mountains of Montana from this view unless you go with Glacier Aviation.

Pete D | Helena, Montana | Tripadvisor Review | May 29, 2023

Five Star RatingI cannot recommend this experience enough. Our pilot was very friendly and enjoyable. We did the half-hour experience and from start to finish it was full of great views and helpful information. Looking forward to booking this again.

Highlight of Our Trip
Five Star RatingOur flight was absolutely incredible with some of the most beautiful scenery one could hope to see in a lifetime. We spent several days hiking in Glacier National Park, and though the views were stunning, they didn’t compare to what we saw from the air. If you have a smaller party, I highly recommend the helicopter ride. It’s just a different experience. Thanks so much to Glacier Aviation Services for accommodating us with our last-minute booking. We highly recommend booking a tour with them!
Ian D | Tripadvisor Review | June 3, 2022

Five Star RatingUnbelievable trip! Gary and Doug went out of their way to make it happen after having weather issues. The valley is so lucky to have a service like this to show everyone the view from the air!

Spectacular Views and Service!

Five Star RatingI felt like I saw more of Glacier Park by flying over it than when I drove through it. Excellent service and a comfortable ride. Spectacular views from the helicopter!

Amazing Adventure

Five Star RatingThis was an amazing experience. Scott our pilot was very informative. We got to see the park from a very different perspective. Go early in the day as the sky is very clear and there is less turbulence.

Robbieh364 | Roanoke, VA | Tripadvisor Review | June 27, 2022

Five Star RatingWow…just Wow! Without a doubt the BEST helicopter tour I have ever experienced.Thank you Glacier Aviation Services for being the “cherry on top” of my Glacier National Park tour. The red jet helicopter was fantastic. The professional, and educational commentary from the pilot/guide was phenomenal. I plan on returning and another air tour here will be my first booking.

Nannette N | Tripadvisor Review | June 28, 2022
Gorgeous Aerial Views of Glacier

Five Star RatingMy helicopter flight with Glacier Aviation was out of this world extraordinary!! Prior to the flight, I was uncertain given that it’s a pricey adventure. As soon as we got to the mountains, I knew I made the right choice. From snow caps to vivid green valleys, avalanches to waterfalls, It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. If you can do it, don’t miss it!!

Jennifer E | Katy, TX | Tripadvisor Review | June 28, 2022
Bucket List for Sure!

Five Star RatingYou can’t get a better view of Glacier Park and the surrounding areas. As a 5th generation Montanan we’re always getting breathe taking views of this great state! But this tour takes the prize. It’s hard to take photos because you’re constantly taking it all in. We loved our pilot because he was friendly and had so much knowledge of the area. This is a bucket list item for sure.

Matthew M | Tripadvisor Review | July 1, 2022
Great Crew and Great Equipment- Great experience!

Five Star RatingThe Glacier team was great to work with. Great modern equipment that was in great conduit. The pilot was very skilled and knowledgeable of the area. The ride was smooth and the views were great. I’ve taken the 1/2 hr – I wish that we could have done the full hr flight.

Incredible Views

Five Star RatingIf you want an incredible view of Glacier National Park and surrounding areas this is your stop. Pictures don’t do the ride justice. Must see it in person. Very professional and knowledgeable about every mountain peak and valley along the trip. I highly recommend Glacier Aviation Services for an enhanced experience.

Amazing Tour From The Sky

Five Star RatingRamsey was a stellar pilot! The flight was smooth from take-off to landing. Ramsey hit all the highlights and was a great ‘tour guide’ from the sky! The views were spectacular, a completely different experience from the ground. This is a MUST SEE when visiting Glacier.

Amazing Experience
Five Star RatingWhere do I start, from booking our flight to receiving updates was very easy.
Gary was extremely helpful. The location was easy to find.
We chose the one-hour Cessna flight. Scott our pilot was wonderful, the flight was very smooth.
Scott absolutely loves what he does, and it shows in his enthusiasm and knowledge of Glasier National Park and the surrounding area.
Seeing Glasier from the air is a must-do. You will not be disappointed.
All the staff were incredible, we have some memories that we will talk about for a very long time.
Thank you.

Wife’s 50th Birthday Over Glacier

Five Star RatingBought this for my wife’s 50th Birthday Present, she has never been flown in a helicopter. Gary was our pilot, his staff was super friendly seem more excited than wife to give a new experience for someone. At first, doing all line with only one phone call was different, I follow all the steps and it worked seem less. The flight from take-off was awesome within a few minutes you are on top of the world. My wife’s SMILES were priceless!!! Best way to see Glacier! A must-do!

BBF | Post Falls, ID | Tripadvisor Review | August 3, 2022
Beautiful Views

Five Star RatingThe hour helicopter ride included beautiful views of mountains, glaciers, lakes, rivers, and towns in the area west and south of Glacier National Park – all described and named for you by your pilot. Ramsay did a fantastic job letting us know what we were looking at and keeping us safe on our flight. The entire process was very organized, which was greatly appreciated. Read closely on the website where the tour will be taking you- they do not go into the very busy park areas like Logan Pass or Many Glacier. You can see the Canadian Rockies in the distance and Lake McDonald in different portions of the flight. It was a beautiful experience.

Krystina C | Tripadvisor Review | August 12, 2023
