Bay Aerial Service – PRIVATE 1 hour Helicopter Tour
“Often imitated, never duplicated”
Whether you’re planning a birthday, anniversary, proposal, corporate event, or just looking for an exclusive view of California, our tours combine the unique views of the San Francisco Bay Area with the enthusiasm, reliability and safety of a locally owned and operated professional.
Our helicopter tours include all the major sights and attractions the San Francisco Bay Area has to offer including: the San Francisco skyline, the Embarcadero, Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 39, Alcatraz Island, the Golden Gate Bridge, Tiburon, the Palace of Fine Arts, The Presidio, and Golden Gate Park. You will also see the famous Pacific Coast Hwy and its gorgeous coastal cliffs where a keen eye can spot dolphins, seals and even whales! Bay Aerial doesn’t stop there though as we offer tours of the vineyards of Napa Valley, the renowned Lake Tahoe, the awe-inspiring Sierra Nevada Mountains, as well as the Sacramento Delta and California’s most popular whitewater rapids courtesy of the American River.
Each and every one of these truly remarkable Northern California treasures offers an unforgettable, moment all from the comfort and safety of our well maintained fleet of helicopters. Get ready for the experience of a lifetime…come fly with us!
All of our staff have a background in either photography and/or film production. We can offer photographers, videographers and professional production assistance with shot lists that include the city skyline, AT&T Park/Levi Stadium, the Bay and Golden Gate Bridges, traffic monitoring (both car and boat) and city waterfront vantage points. We also offer assistance with real estate photos, residential and commercial. Bay Aerial has you covered on every level of production from operators, cameras, mounts, downlinks and of course…helicopters! Whether you’re an amateur or professional, our aerial helicopter platform and available gyro-stabilized mount options will ensure that you have unlimited angles and unique shots.
Here at Bay Aerial we promote the “fly neighborly” motto. We do our best to respect others on the ground by flying less invasively, higher, smarter and in the end safer. To get the most out of your flight, the right aircraft flown by the right pilot is an absolute must. Our reasonably priced Robinson 44 and Robinson 66 helicopters offer the most comfortable and safest platforms for tours, photography and cinematography. Our pilots have almost 20 years of experience and are Bay Area locals with the unique knowledge base. Bay Aerial guarantees you a “sit back, relax and enjoy the views” type of flight.
Helicopter Tours vs Airplane Tours:
It is a known fact that helicopter tours are the real deal. Airplanes are not at all the same thing, they are more bumpy of a ride, smaller cocpit, less visibility and often a nautuos feeling when any wind. Helicopters offer a softer smoother ride with great visibility.
In the aviation industry, you get what you pay for. We chose the Robinson 44 and 66 as the safest options to offer the public as the Robinson 22 is small and not stabile enough or suitable for helicopter tours, photography. Even drones…while technically the safest option due to their “unmanned” aspect…do not have the intuition, artistic or decision-making abilities that the human eye does and are incapable of providing the quality views and shots that an individual person can deliver.
Bay Aerial was started by a local San Fransisco pilot who still runs the company today. We keep our overhead low so that we can offer you the best possible pricing available and we strive to maintain transparency and customer satisfaction. Bay Aerial is not a flight school, third party booking company or a broker. We make it as easy as possible to book and fly with no hassle. We could go on but don’t take our word for it, check out what our previous clients have to say!
