Well done HeliCo and Pilot Dakota - My first time in a chopper but it won’t be the last. Our pilot, Dakota was great. He was obviously comfortable with the chopper and with the landmarks/sights/history that he pointed along the way. Our 30 minute tour went fast, too fast. We could have stayed up a lot longer. Our route looped us over the lake, the swamp, the Mississippi River, and made a good turn around/over the downtown area of New Orleans. Dakota pointed out several/most of the major areas of the city from the air. Very professionally done Dakota and HeliCo. Thanks for some great memories.

Birthday City Swamp tour - We had a great time. Helicopter pilot was knowledgeable about the area we covered. We went for the doors being taken off. I recommend flying like that over doors on.
