What people are saying about Mississippi River

I have taken quite a few helicopter flights offshore for work in drill ships and have flown during my time as a Marine but I must say the pilot and staff made me and my fiancée experience nothing but comfort, pleasure and safety during our time in the air. I have already begun telling my family and friends about them and I highly suggest people try their company. Two thumbs up Helicoptors !!!

our pilot Mark was very professional and kept the tour very interesting! it was quick but very worth while.

We enjoyed ourselves the tour was amazing everyone was amazing!!!

A great experience. Definitely recommending to everyone I know.

For my first helicopter ride it was a pretty nice experience.
