Soar beyond the horizon

Our state-of-the-art helicopters are some of the quietest in the sky, with outstanding visibility 

Discover your perfect destination and take to the skies

Scenic has always sought to venture beyond the horizon, and now, with our Scenic Eclipse helicopter excursions, we've made our ethos a reality.

Offering guests unparalleled access to some of nature's most beautiful and least visited destinations, our two state-of-the-art Airbus H130-T2 helicopters will take you beyond your destination.

Our helicopter excursions let  you hover high above the vibrant coral structures in the Caribbean, enjoy a birds-eye view of the lush jungle coastline that separates Panama and Colombia from the oceans, and see icy landscapes like never before, as you glide above the Arctic Circle, over the Lofoten Islands, and across the sparkling Norwegian fjords.

Experience the thrill of flying low over the dramatic crags of the Scottish Isles, or venture further inland than most on the Antarctic continent, seeing native wildlife in their natural habitat.

Our Helicopters - A Closer Look

As one of the quietest helicopters in the skies, the H130 sets the standard for tourism operations worldwide. Its low sound levels are seven decibels below the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) requirement. 

You’ll feel like a true pioneer explorer as you soar above destinations previously thought inaccessible, enjoying a unique bird’s eye view from a completely different perspective in the air.

"We have specifically selected this model for its wide, unobstructed cabin space, which can accommodate the pilot and up to six passengers, with outstanding visibility for all passengers.” - Glenn Moroney, Scenic Founder and Chairman

Fly in 6-star comfort 

Our Scenic Eclipse Airbus helicopter fleet is equipped with cutting edge technology and state-of-the-art functionality that allows guests to safely reach ultra-exclusive vantage points, providing unrivalled views of the planet's awe-inspiring landscape.  

Features include Bose noise-cancelling headsets, five cameras fitted to the interior and exterior of the helicopter (which provides guests with flight footage), premium, custom leather seats and interior, as well as a Bluetooth audio system for in-flight music. 

State-of-the-art technology

During your flight, outstanding visibility is provided by the large wrap-around windscreen and wide windows. Those facing forward will have incredible views, as will those seated in the rear position, thanks to a raised 'theatre-style' platform. Your enjoyment and comfort is our number one priority on our helicopter excursions.
