this experience was really great. Easy to book through this app. The time we indicated could not continue but received a new time via email. Communication went fine. The meeting point was easy to reach by metro and then a transfer to the bus. when we arrived we reported to the desk. We were called and given a film with safety instructions. After this you were weighed and you were searched and you got your safety set on. The flight was very nice. However, 12 minutes passed quickly. We flew over the palm, burj al arab, and from a distance we saw the burj khalifa. The pilot gave a brief explanation.

Of course you have to have flown a helicopter in Dubai. It was great. The times were kept to the minute, the preparation was simple and easy to understand. The pilot was great and showed us all the sights and explained them. The route was great over 12 minutes. Don't book too early as it can still be hazy in the morning. We booked 2pm and the weather and visibility were wonderful. The best way to get there is by taxi. At the parking lot, you will be driven to the registration with the shuttle. Masks are no longer compulsory.

I chose the helicopter flight as a birthday wish after I didn't do one in NY. the booking via the app was corrected in time, instead of 9.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. That was fine for us, you get timely information with a link where you have to be and when. arrived we were received in the waiting room, personal data compared. I expressed my wish to sit in the front because it was/is my birthday that day. they said they would make an effort, and that was actually followed up. we were weighed and given safety vests, then called and escorted to the heli in numbered order. I was very excited, but it felt great. I sat in front and could see everything great. looking into the distance was unfortunately not sooo good because of the haze/fog. but we could see the burj khalifa and all the other skyscrapers well. the burj al arab was so beautifully visible, and right near the helipad. took nice photos. everything perfect
