PRIVATE Helicopter San Francisco Tour – R66
We are a owner operated, “Locals Choice” Helicopter Tour Operation, centrally located on the San Francisco peninsula in San Carlos, offering safe and private tours, and because of our unique routing these tours can be duplicated by no one. Rated “The Best Helicopter Tours” in the San Francisco Area by CBS San Francisco. Fact: All of our passengers have a window seat with an unimpeded view throughout the entire flight. Bay Aerial has tour routes that follow interesting local information that no other company can match. Our pilots are 20 year locals with a genuine interest on local history. These are just a few reasons why we are the best choice in the Bay Area for a private Air Tour. With over 15 years of incident free service, we offer private, comfortable, and memorable aerial adventures.

We at Bay Aerial Helicopter Tours take this business seriously. We are a dedicated tour company not a flight school or a “club”. We take pride in our simple, honest, genuine approach, when offering these unique San Francisco Helicopter Tours. Please do your research and be aware of “copycat marketing” IE. other businesses with almost identical names and tag lines. Fact: Bay Aerial has been in the TOUR specific business for over 15 years. Don’t get fooled when scattered flight schools during slow times offer discounted tours. Fact: These discounted “tours” are usually operated by inexperienced tour pilots from inexperienced businesses in airplanes. Yes, airplanes. Fact: These “discounted” tours have an inflated price to start and are then “discounted” so the rate is really not discounted at all. Fact: Furthermore small airplanes have limited visibility, and if windy they can be bumpy and uncomfortable. Nauseous is not what you want and airplanes just don’t make good “tour” aircraft. Fact: Helicopters are well known for much better visibility and are smoother and far more comfortable in the winds, this is why helicopters are the ideal aircraft for Tours.

So come enjoy the “BEST Helicopter Tours” in the Bay Area, and fly with the San Carlos original, BAY AERIAL !!! (3 passengers maximum. Weight limits apply)
