"Helicopter Ride with Heli USA -" Las Vegas Tip by ottersrock

Las Vegas, Las Vegas: 16 reviews and 7 photos

This company describes some of the flights by miles not time. Keep this in mind!

A friend of mine signed up for the "Apollo Las Vegas Strip Night Flight" for $79 per person. It says you you have a glass of champagne before the flight, board the "jet copter" and see the strip at night. The description says you will go 22 miles. After the lengthy safety video, everyone was rushed past the champange with no time to take a glass and into the helicopter. The total time of the flight, from liftoff at the airport to touching back down at the airport, was 5 minutes. All 6 of the passengers felt very ripped off while exiting the helicopter only to pass the pilot that had his hand out expecting a tip from everyone.
