Last Sept we visited Grand Canyon south rim and had an excellent time there.
We spent whole two days within the area and did not see a single helicopter or fixed wing aeroplane over the main Grand Canyon area.
We really really wanted to take a helicopter ride over Grand Canyon. Many of our friends told us that they have done such trips in the past.
We asked the GC park information office and they advised us that “no aircraft was allowed to fly over the main Grand Canyon area due to air and noise pollution”. They also advised us that the helicopters and fixed wing aeroplanes fly over other canyons and not over the main Canyon.
Does anyone know exactly where the helicopters normally fly near Grand Canyon?
A friend of mine with his family will be visiting the Grand Canyon next June and they have already booked a helicopter ride from Las Vegas which they say will fly over Grand Canyon and even land near Colorado River.
Does any one know any such trip from Las Vegas that flies over GC and lands near the Colorado River?
