Known as the Florida Panhandle or 'Floribama', North-west Florida is home to some of the most exquisite aerial views.

Here life looks more "traditional" than the rest of Florida.

If you book a helicopter tour in this area you are more likely to find traditional southern antebellum houses and giant live oaks rather than palm trees.

Get fantastic sights of the flora and fauna which are more typical of those found in the mid-south and low country regions of South Carolina and North Carolina.



Flying around the states panhandle you will not want to miss a helicopter tour of the States capital Tallahassee.

Although some palm trees grow in the city, they are the more cold-hardy varieties like the state tree, the Sabal Palmetto. Pines, magnolias, and a variety of oaks are the dominant trees.

Of the latter, the Southern Live Oak is perhaps the most emblematic of the city.


Experience the thrill of taking off vertically, departing from the Tallahassee Regional Airport and flying over Lake Bradford.


If you are a FSU Football Fan, take a heli-tour over their football stadium at only about 300 feet above the ground! This is a must on the site seeing list!


Take a chopper ride over the "Redneck Riviera" also known as Panama City. Get an in-flight observation of where half a million college students descend each Spring Break.




Just to the east of Panama your helicopter can easily glide over the beautiful St. Andrews Recreation Area, popular for its beaches and sand dunes.



While visiting Florida most people think of boats or ground forms of transportation. But think outside the "boat", let the wind carry you to new heights! Only looking down can you get these breath-taking views over Pensacola.


Don't miss the chance to look down from your helicopter window at the turquoise waters and white sand beaches. The pristine, unspoiled beauty of Pensacola's beaches is just the beginning. From this elevation you can also catch glimpses of ocean wildlife such as dolphins and different types of sharks.



Soar above Destin, a popular vacation spot with beautiful hotels and resorts. Only from your heli-tour can you get such stunning views of some of the world most amazing golf courses.




If water is not your thing and you want to explore Florida from an entirely different angle, book a helicopter tour next time you are in the panhandle! Make any event more special. The only thing that can make a sunset more charming than sharing it with the one you love, is to see it from the heavens!
