Downtown Los Angeles on a Helicopter Tour
Every Private Tour by Helicopter Sees Downtown Los Angeles
Sometimes we begin our helicopter tour from on top of a downtown skyscraper. That really makes our aerial tour of the city an adventure. Then, of course, the first sights we enjoy are the city skyline and inner city landmarks. In our tour photo above we see the tallest building (for a little while longer) west of the Mississippi, the U.S. Bank Tower. The historic Los Angeles Central Library is the seemingly tiny white building to its right. The cylindrical Bonaventure Hotel is in the lower left corner of the image. Even if we depart on our luxury helicopter from one of the nearby airports (Santa Monica, Burbank, Van Nuys) we still will navigate through the tall structures and get a birdseye view of the birthplace of Los Angeles, Chinatown, Union Station, the Music Center, Bunker Hill, Broadway and L.A. Live before we head over to the University of Southern California (USC) and the L.A. Coliseum. An hour long flight provides our private Los Angeles tour guests with a good look at the major part of the city’s 500 square miles from downtown (DTLA) to the beach, the local mountains, and the interesting neighborhoods of movie stars in Malibu, Beverly Hills, Brentwood, Bel Air and Holmby Hills. Naturally, we pull up in front of the Hollywood Sign. And to really make our tour a VIP experience we drive back after the flight for closer looks at many of the sights and landmarks we saw from our helicopter.
