All children aged 2 and over must purchase a seat to fly and pay as an adult. Everyone who flies must demonstrate that they can physically comply with our safety instructions.

Will I sit next to my partner?


We make every effort to ensure that friends, family and couples sit together, but due to seating configurations and aircraft weight and balance calculations, we are not always able to accommodate each other. Please speak to a RIOCOPTER agent upon arrival for any specific requests.

What if I stay in the city for a short period?


There's no better way to cover the entire city than seeing it from 2500 feet. We recommend that you fly in the middle of the day – between 10am and 4pm. Generally the atmosphere will be more conducive during this period. Sunset flights don't always go as expected, but if the day is perfect, it's sure to be a beautiful flight. Use our Transfer transportation service to ensure a quick and comfortable journey to and from your helicopter flight.

Does my helicopter flight time start immediately?


The contracted flight time is counted from engine activation to engine shutdown, subject to air traffic flow conditions, authorizations from air traffic control bodies and meteorological conditions.

What should I bring?


Bring a valid photo ID (driver's license, state ID, or passport) and something you'd like to film and take photos with!

What photography equipment should I bring?


We recommend that you bring whatever you feel comfortable with for filming. Of course, your lens and camera depend on what you want to capture. If you want to take photos of yourself and your friends, we recommend a wider lens, like 16-35. However, if you want to capture a mix of each with the photos around you, we recommend a 24-70 lens. If you want to capture details of buildings and landscapes around you, we recommend a 70-200. Lens filters, sun hoods and lens changes are not permitted on Doors-off flights, so you should always bring a camera body and lens that fits your desired photos.

Are you a professional photographer?


If you are a professional photographer, we recommend purchasing a private flight. This will give you unparalleled flexibility in determining your flight route and managing your sightseeing list
