Full description
Experience Toronto from above as you take to the skies and look down through the tall skyscrapers at what downtown has to offer. Select the 15-kilometer flight for approximate 7 minutes in the air above downtown Toronto. Alternatively, treat yourself to the 35-kilometer flight and see more with approximately 12 minutes in the air. 

Your adventure begins at a boutique island airport downtown, located just minutes from the Toronto Harbour Front, Rogers Centre, and CN Tower. A friendly and easy check-in at the front desk will be followed by a short wait and a pre-flight briefing. Everyone will wear audio headsets complete with microphones so you can speak to each other on the tour. 

The tour will make a perfect figure eight pattern over the city and you will see everything, a carefully designed tour route means everyone gets to see the city equally. At 2,000 feet, you will be as high as the second pod on the CN Tower and the view is incredible. Fly right over the downtown center with sights such as Ripley's Aquarium and the Rogers Center, on a clear day you may even see the mist coming off Niagara Falls. Averaging speeds of 100 miles per hour, you will be amazed at how far you can travel without congested streets and traffic lights. Take in the breathtaking views through the unique floor-to-ceiling glass from your guaranteed window seat. Your tour will conclude at your return to the helicopter base.
