Taking a tour of the city in a helicopter can be a very fun experience, which is why you're likely looking for ways to make the most of it. Here are 4 tips that can make the tour more fun and leave you with some lasting memories.
Use The Bathroom Before You Leave
It may seem a bit obvious, but you are going to want to use the bathroom before you go up in the air in the helicopter. There are no bathrooms in the helicopter, and you do not want your trip to be ruined because you forgot to do this simple thing before you took off. The pilot is not going to turn the helicopter around because someone has an emergency.
Bring Straps For Your Camera
Make sure you check with your helicopter tour company about what is needed for taking a camera on your tour. It may be required that you use a certain type of strap for a camera, or the strap you are thinking of using might not be allowed. When you are buckled into the seat of a helicopter, a strap is going to make sure that your camera is within reach to take some amazing photos.
Select A Doors-Off Helicopter Tour If Possible
If you have the option to pick what kind of helicopter you'll be taking for your tour, pick one where the doors will be taken off. Not only is it more exciting to take a tour of the city without looking through glass, but it will make your photos look much better. If you have to shoot your photos through a glass window, know that you can still make them look great. Just make sure that your window is clean so that you are not capturing smudges on the glass.
It is going to be a bit chilly while on the helicopter tour, especially with the doors off. Make sure you dress appropriately by wearing layers of warm clothes because the wind alone will make it cold after a while. A rain jacket or windbreaker is going to work great because it does not allow any air through the jacket. If you dress for the warm weather on the ground, you'll end up regretting it.
These are just a few tips that will help ensure that you have a great trip. Ask your helicopter tour company for more information that will make the tour go great.
