How many people do the helicopters at Scenic Helicopter Tours hold?
Our helicopter's hold either three (3) or four (4) passengers. We believe in quality rather than quantity, and our helicopters offer the best visibility with all seats facing forward.
How long do the flights last?
To get the times on the flights, you just cut the miles in half. So for example the River Island flight is 8 miles in distance, so the length is 4 minutes. Please arrive approximately 30 minutes prior to flight time to fill out paperwork and ensure on-time flights.
Is there an age limit?
Not at all. Our youngest passenger was 20 days old and the oldest passenger we know of was 102 years old, so if you're in between those ages you are good to go. If you're older or younger, please let us know so we can make note. Children less than 24 months are free.
Can handicapped people take a flight?
Absolutely! One of our biggest thrills is to enable those who cannot hike the back country trails to still enjoy the beauty of our area.
Do you fly over waterfalls?
No, not any longer. The reason is, that most of the waterfalls in the park are very popular destinations for hikers and in order to see them from the helicopter we have to get very low over them. We decided years ago to discontinue this for the hiker's enjoyment of natural quiet, besides the park offers many other awesome views that are virtually untouched by human feet.
Can we take pictures/video from the helicopter during our Scenic Helicopter Tour?
Yes. In fact, it is highly recommended.
Where is Scenic Helicopter Tours located?
The physical location is 1949 Winfield Dunn Parkway in Sevierville.
Is there a weight limit?
Yes. In one of our aircraft we have a per seat limit of 300lbs.
Can pets come along for the ride?
No. FAA regulations do not allow us to accommodate animals.
