Are you afraid to take a helicopter tour?

After the news headlines lately, I was wondering about helicopter tours. I took a helicopter tour of Niagara Falls and it was awesome! After that experience I would like to take more helicopter rides. I felt safe in the one I took, but these latest accidents sure cause one to think! I guess they are as safe or maybe safer than driving or riding in a car.

I believe the best way to get the lay of the land is by air and would enjoy any trip in the sky.Whether via airplane or balloon or helicopter it would be a blast!!The memories would last me a lifetime.Remembering that the odds of dieing in a helicopter crash are even more remote then winning the lottery!!

Good to know those odds. A balloon ride is another thing on my list!

I have never taken one. I would love to do it though. The poster above gave me a wonderful idea. We live near Gatlinburg, Tn. they do a big lights display every year. They also have helicopter tours. It would be a beautiful site to see if they do night tours.

You live in a wonderful area for a helicopter or hot air ballon ride. I would definately recommend you take one or both. It is phenomenal and the mountain views would make it even better!

I took a helicopter ride over our city for Christmas one year. It was a present from my dad. He wanted me to see all the Christmas lights from up high. It was so wonderful, and if I ever get a chance to do it again, I would. Especially if it was over Niagra Falls!

I'll bet the lights all over the campus were pretty!
