One thing becomes clear once your airplane begins the descent into Las Vegas: There’s a ton of space to explore in Southern Nevada and the Southwest in general. Las Vegas is an amazing destination in its own right, but it’s also the center of the Southwest universe, where you can explore anything you want—and we definitely suggest exploring it from a helicopter, such as the fleet deployed by Maverick Helicopters.
The minute you board the ECO-Star craft, you feel ready for any adventure possible—after all, it’s the only helicopter designed specifically for tourism, and offers ultimate comfort as you jet to your destination of choice. Making the journey even more enjoyable? Every pilot for Maverick excels at putting their passengers at ease, and the headsets you will be asked to wear is how your pilot communicates with you. In addition, music will be played, and it’s always geared specifically for the destination. At times, you’ll feel like you’re in a scene from an action movie. Other times, you’ll get very introspective, and other times very emotional.
If you’re new to the helicopter experience, we can’t imagine recommending anything more than a flight along the famous Las Vegas Strip. Finally, you can see the iconic destination like you’ve been seeing it all these years on TV shows and in movies. Trust us, the real thing is truly something special. You may even want to go twice, since it seems to go by so fast.
If it’s a special occasion with your sweetie—anniversaries, birthdays, renewing of the vows—Maverick offers several romantic options. The Savory Bites & Neon Lights package is in partnership with Lip Smacking Foodie Tours and features VIP treatment at four of the top restaurants on the Strip, after which you take a luxurious limousine to Maverick’s headquarters, where you’ll soar over the city.
Depending on the time of year, you can also rely on Maverick to help you beat the heavy traffic associated with NASCAR and Electric Daisy Carnival music festival, both at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. You’ll receive transportation both to and from each event, and trust us, both of these packages are worth every penny!
If you want to see more of the Southwest, specifically the Grand Canyon, Maverick offers countless options. Start with the Wind Dancer tour, which, in addition to featuring stunning views of Hoover Dam and Lake Mead, includes touching down 300 feet above the Colorado River inside the Grand Canyon and enjoying champagne and light snacks.
Other Grand Canyon packages include trips to the Skywalk, a man-made, see-through promenade over the Grand Canyon, Indian territory and the West Rim. No matter how many times you visit, you’ll be counting the days until your return.
