Helli tour of Grand Canyon. How bumpy of a ride?

Just wondering how smooth/bumpy of a flight it is? Does it depend on the time of day. We are doing a noon tour and my wife is nervous enough already. If it will be a real bumpy flight, we may have to change our plans

Thanks.

I can't speak for the canyon trip, but we just got married in a helicopter over the strip on 3/15, and the flight was smooth as glass.

We did Papillon tour into the Grand Canyon.....it was very smooth! Our tour was at 11 I think. Takes you all of about 2 or 3 minutes to get used to the idea you are flying then you are too busy looking around at everything. Loved it!!!

Hi, your helicopter flight should be smooth. Unlike planes, helicopters do not experience turbulance. The only reason it may be bad is if you have a bad pilot(which is highly unlikely) or it is very windy. Enjoy the tour.
