Highly Recommend!

Five Star Rating We had a fantastic time flying with Glacier Aviation Services, and our gracious pilot pointed out many landmarks and points of interests. His flying was skillful and steady. He was professional, cordial as was his ground assistant. The views were spectacular! We highly recommend the 1-hours tour, and well worth the money.

1/2 Hour Helicopter Tour of Glacier Area

Five Star RatingWe did the 1/2 hour helicopter tour and it was AMAZING – well worth it. It was my husband, myself and our 17-year old son. Our pilot Ramsay was exceptional in his flight skill and knowledge of the area and was very friendly. Would highly recommend this!

Wow! Beautiful World!

Five Star RatingThis was an awesome time! My husband and I went just a few days ago (In October) and the weather was gorgeous. Our pilot was fantastic and very knowledgeable of the area. The views are spectacular. One of our trip highlights for sure! This is a must-do! I get kind of nervous about flying but the entire experience was worth it and the flight was very smooth.

Majestic Views

Five Star RatingWhat an amazing experience, so majestic! We celebrated our 30th Anniversary by flying over Glacier. We highly recommend Gary our pilot, we loved every bit of it.

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.

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
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.

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.

Nickole A | Tripadvisor Review | July 31, 2022
Amazing Experience

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.

Courtney M | Tripadvisor Review | July 24, 2022
Great Experience

Five Star RatingGreat way to see parts of Glacier you can’t see on foot. Smooth and comfortable ride. Reservations were easy to make and the instructions for the day of flight were clear. So glad we did it for our daughter’s graduation surprise adventure!

One Hour Tour Over Glacier National Park

Five Star RatingThe flight was breathtaking. Gary is a very skilled pilot with a wealth of knowledge about the area. Highly recommend the hour tour. Doug took care of us before & after the flight. These brothers make a fantastic team!

Helicopter Tour of Glacier National Park

Five Star RatingThe pilot was superb. We had total confidence in his skills and he was a knowledgeable guide. Answered questions and pointed out highlights. The views on this trip will leave you speechless. The helicopter is amazing. This flight is well worth the money and made our trip to Glacier Park an unforgettable experience. Highly recommend them.

Matthew K | Trip Advisor Review | July 21, 2022
Was Everything and More Than Described

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.

Randy P | Tripadvisor Review | July 11, 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
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
MUST DO!

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
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
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!

Helicopter Tour

Five Star RatingSuper nice people that made our experience great. We ended up having to change days because of the weather and they were super accommodating. Loved the trip.

Mary S | Tripadvisor Review | June 22, 2022
AMAZING

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!

Tessbugpoo | Tripadvisor Review | June 19, 2022
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!

AMAZING VIEWS WITH A FANTASTIC PILOT

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.

SPECTACULAR I WISH I COULD TAKE ALL MY FRIENDS!

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

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
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!
