“Thanks for the flight - we had a blast, and I'm already thinking about my next trip. That was my favorite 40 minutes of the year by far. A trip with Tallahassee Helicopters should be on everyone's bucket list. The only thing better than visiting a favorite spot like Wakulla Springs or St. Theresa is letting Tallahassee Helicopters get you there in style. Thomas and Tamp know their business, but more importantly, they love their business, and it shows. For first-rate service from first-rate folks, take a flight with Tallahassee Helicopters - you'll be glad you did.”
“The helicopter tour was incredible! My wife and son had never been in one before. It was an amazing ride. We went over our house, the FSU stadium, and flew downtown below the skyline. We could see so much up close. We were so close you could see the excited expressions on people's faces. The pilot was friendly, professional, and informative. The service was convenient with little notice needed to book a flight, and there were plenty of tour options. Thank you for such an awesome and unique experience!”
“As a surprise Christmas present, my wife gave me a gift certificate for the Stadium Tour Package offered by Tallahassee Helicopters. Let me assure you, it was a gift I will never forget. The staff at Tallahassee Helicopters exhibited professionalism and competence while maintaining a comfortable atmosphere. The flight itself was an amazing experience, trust me, you have never really seen Doak Campbell Stadium until you have flown over it in a light helicopter. I look forward to future helicopter tours and I will certainly recommend Tallahassee Helicopters to anyone else wishing to enjoy a great flying experience.”
“Flying over Tallahassee with Tallahassee Helicopters is one of the most amazing opportunities available in our town. Seeing Doak Campbell stadium from above and flying around the beautiful skyline was incredible. The views from beginning to end were simply breathtaking!”
“My friends, Mariano and Leon Rodriguez, and I had a wonderful flight with Tallahassee-Helicopters. Over the years, I've flown in and out of Tallahassee Regional Airport in commercial and small private fixed-wing aircraft dozens of times. I thought I knew the skyline well. Nothing compares to being in a small helicopter and flying at under 500 feet over Lake Bradford, the two universities, and downtown Tallahassee. A truly great experience.”
“Riding in a helicopter was a once-in-a-lifetime kind of experience! Traveling over Tallahassee by air allows you to see the beauty of this town in ways that you wouldn't be able to do while your feet are planted on the ground. The pictures you are able to take become some of your most cherished. I would totally recommend Tallahassee Helicopters for everyone who wants to go on a new sightseeing adventure!”
“I can't tell you how much fun my wife and I had seeing Tallahassee from a whole new perspective the other day... from 300 feet up! I really had been trying to think of something special to do for our 37th Anniversary and when I heard one of your commercials I thought, why not! I wasn't sure how much my wife would appreciate it though until I heard her say 'this is so cool' while we were flying over our house. Chase, our pilot couldn't have been more accommodating or focused on making our trip enjoyable! Since our flight we've mentioned it to countless friends and shared our pictures and I do believe you will have more a lot more passengers just based on the reactions we've gotten! Thanks again for helping to make our Anniversary so memorable!”
“My recent helicopter sightseeing tour over Tallahassee was an amazing event that I would recommend to anyone looking for a unique experience in Tallahassee. The ride felt smooth and safe the entire time and our pilot was outstanding. We took off from the Tallahassee airport and made a circle around FSU's campus and then another around downtown and the capitol building. The ride gave me a whole new perspective of the city of Tallahassee. This ride with Tallahassee Helicopters was affordable and allowed me to take some great photos as well as make some great memories!
“We took our 3-year-old daughter on a helicopter ride for her 4th birthday. Before the flight, Chris explained how helicopters work, and told her the story of the day he fell in love with helicopters. He also gave her a toy helicopter to take along for the ride. She got to sit up front with him to get the best view, while mom and dad sat in the back. We flew over Lake Jackson, downtown Tallahassee, and the FSU stadium. On our way back to the airport, Chis took us down closer to Lake Bradford so we could get a better look at the water. It seemed like we were close enough to touch the water! All 3 of us had a great time, and hope to do it again one day soon!”
“Weeks prior to Valentine's Day I searched the web for interesting and unique things I could do for Valentine's Day. While researching I came across many wonderful ideas, but only one stood out the most. I saw that a couple had gone on a helicopter tour and they said it was nothing far from amazing. So I typed into the Google search bar 'Helicopter Tours in Tallahassee', and I came across Tallahassee Helicopters, LLC. So a long story short I waited for the days to pass in anticipation of our tour to what I was sure was going to be a good time. The trip was far from good it was great. I really enjoyed being up in the sky seeing the beautiful city of Tallahassee, looking at all of the gauges in the cockpit doing what they were doing, listening to the communications from Air Traffic Control and lastly/most important LANDING back on solid ground. I do not think I can say it enough the trip was amazing, and if the opportunity presented itself again I would not hesitate to go back up in the helicopter with Pilot Diefenbach.”
“Thank you so much for sending the photos you took. They were amazing! - I learned about your service through the internet. I was searching for cool valentine's day ideas and came across your site. In a town like Tallahassee, that maybe does not yet have some of the attractions of other metropolitan areas, it was refreshing to find something totally extraordinary AND affordable. The idea of riding in a helicopter seemed so different and unique that my first thought was how complex the process was going to be. Speaking with you on the phone was just the first of a couple of very simple steps we took before going on the ride. The Helicopter was modern if not new, the ride was exhilarating, the sights were beautiful, and most importantly, Valerie, my fiancé, had an amazing and memorable time. You should hear her talking to her friends and colleagues about what she did on Valentines day! - Thanks for the wonderful ride!”
“I have had one of the most remarkable encounters of my life thanks to Tallahassee Helicopters. We were provided with a private helicopter tour for two over the city of Tallahassee. This was the perfect way to enhance a very special occasion. The pilot was extremely courteous and a pleasure to ride with. I look forward to soaring to new heights again and taking advantage of all the services they have to offer. I would definitely recommend Tallahassee Helicopters to anyone looking for an amazing experience on a whole new level!”
“We had a great time. Tallahassee Helicopters made it an adventure. I took a buddy of mine as part of his bachelor party, and it definitely tops the list of things to do in Tallahassee. It was definitely like no other experience ever before”
“My lady friend and I had a wonderful time seeing Tallahassee from the birds' eye view. The helicopter ride was very smooth and enjoyable. It's an experience that I would definitely do again.”
“Thank you soooo much Dr. Thomas. All I can think about is that flight Saturday. I want to do it again real soon. I will make sure everyone I come in contact with knows that helicopters are amazing aircraft and that you and your staff do a wonderful job. Thank you so much again and I will come see ya soon.”
