A proposal atop a cliff overlooking a stunning Muskoka backdrop; a private picnic for two in a secret location; seeing the sun set with a view from above.
These are just a few of the incredible memories made even more special when you travel to your destination by helicopter.
HOVR Aviation offers a large variety of helicopter tours to take a special occasion like a marriage proposal or birthday to the next level, or just to have some fun with your friends and family.
Clients can enjoy fly-and-play golf tours, view the iconic Toronto skyline from the air, visit Algonquin Park on a private tour, or enjoy many more options. They’re all curated to give HOVR’s guests a whole new perspective on well known destinations.
They can also fly you to and from a resort, whether in Muskoka or further afield.
“Our helicopter tours provide you with breathtaking sights, such as the leaves changing colours across Muskoka, or golden hour flying above the vineyards of Niagara,” says Jay McMackin, HOVR Aviation’s chief pilot and operations manager. “We also offer Fly and Dine experiences, like a fish and chips tour, or a picnic tour where we stop at a gorgeous location to enjoy a fabulous meal.”
Each tour provides a new and memorable experience to the guests on the flight, including special touches like champagne for two on a proposal flight.
“Can you think of a more romantic way to ask someone to marry you than to take them on a helicopter tour, and then propose while flying over a place of stunning natural beauty?” Jay asks. “It’s guaranteed to be a story told through the generations in your family.”
Avoid the traffic
Although HOVR Aviation’s tours are a must, many of their clients use their helicopter service to avoid the highway traffic to and from the cottage.
“It’s an incredibly time-efficient way to travel,” says Jay. “We can get you to and from the city without all the stress of being in highway traffic. Depending on wind speed, Muskoka to Toronto takes about 40 minutes; Muskoka to New York is about two hours.”
HOVR Aviation can often land right at the end of your dock or on the lawn, or drop you off at a resort destination.
“We provide truly door-to-door service in a convenient and memorable fashion.”
