Asheville Helicopter & Plane Scenic Tours

Asheville Helicopter & Plane Scenic Tours

Get a birds-eye view of Asheville and the Blue Ridge Mountains during an exhilarating helicopter or plane scenic flight. Asheville Helicopter Tours offered rides in 2017, but they will not return in 2018. Each fall, the pilots association usually offers plane rides on one weekend for a fundraiser. We will post info here if they repeat this in 2018.

Helicopter Tour Dupont Forest High Falls

Fly by Looking Glass Rock (photo at top of page) and above Looking Glass Falls. At DuPont State Forest, fly above Cascade Lake, Hooker Falls, Triple Falls and High Falls (pic above).

Helicopter Tour Bridal Veil Falls NC

Also in DuPont State Forest is Bridal Veil Falls.

Helicopter Tour Chimney Rock

Each season brings its own beauty. Winter has snow, deep blue skies and leafless trees to see the mountain ridges (like Hickory Nut Gorge and Chimney Rock in photo above). Spring brings "greening up the mountains" as bright green leaves climb the ridges.
