Rocky Mountain Helicopter Sightseeing & Tour
Helicopter tours offer a view of Alberta that few people are able to enjoy. The tour begins even before you leave the ground with your arrival at LR Helicopters, at Springbank Airport just outside of Calgary. From here, one of our experienced and friendly pilots will show you around the hanger and introduce you to the helicopter you will be flying in. This involves a quick but thorough debriefing, explaining the important safety features and mechanical systems of the aircraft in order to make your flight a safe and enjoyable experience.
We offer the perfect tour for anyone interested in in the Rocky Mountains. Whether your are a ski nut or simply want to take in the natural beauty of the mountains, this is the tour for you! You will be amazed by how quickly you find yourself in the mountains as you depart west from the airport. You will fly up through the pristine Spray Lakes towards Haig Glacier passing briefly into British Columbia. Be sure to have your cameras ready mountains look much different from this angle! Your pilot will guide you through the various beautiful valleys and over the imposing peaks of mountains. The feeling of flying over a ridge as the ground sinks away below you is an experience you will never forget!
LR offers many different packages for our mountain tours. For example: there is an option to extend the tour to Mt. Assiniboine a truly unforgettable experience. Unfortunately all good things must come to an end as you turn east and head back towards the vast prairies, landing safely back at our base.
