Common Mistakes People Make Regarding a Couple’s Helicopter Flight
We want your helicopter experience to be an excellent one. Avoid the following common mistakes people make when booking their helicopter tour.
Not booking ahead. Nothing is more disappointing than trying to schedule your first couple’s helicopter flight, only to discover that your ideal tour date is fully booked. Avoid disappointment by booking early, and take advantage of our online booking option.
Avoid motion sickness. Consider taking an over-the-counter medication ahead of your flight to avoid feeling ill and uncomfortable during your tour. Precautionary measures are best if you typically feel a bit unwell when on a Ferris wheel or roller coaster. You want to enjoy the experience, and avoid discomfort for you and your fellow passengers.
Bringing too many personal items. Helicopters do not have the same space as a car or aeroplane. Limit your personal items to the essentials. You may not have easy access to your bag once you are strapped in, particularly if it is a large bag. When getting settled and belted in, make sure you have your camera and any other essentials with you. You want to spend your time enjoying the ride and taking pictures, not hunting through your bag for something.
Your first helicopter ride is a fantastic experience. Preparing for the flight is part of the fun and can make for a more enjoyable trip.
