Brief guideline for Heli Tours Sri Lanka

One crew member and four passengers are the maximum number of people that can be aboard a helicopter at any given time. Hence with helicopter tours, a small family of four is ideal to ensure a private helicopter ride to all popular tourist destinations in Sri Lanka. Helicopters don’t usually fly higher than 1000 feet and are absolutely safe. All emergency landing options are available and the best part with helicopters is that they can land almost anywhere.

A first timer does usually have a whole bunch of questions before he/she begins his/her heli tour experience. Here is a small brief of do’s and don’ts during your heli tour Sri Lanka which we hope will answer most of your questions.

Do’s:

  • Carefully listen to all the instructions concerning aircraft safety.
  • Appreciate the beauty of nature at your feet. Capture as many memories on your camera.
  • Wear comfortable full length clothing and a pair of sunglasses. A jumper is optional if you are a person who feels cold easily. Keep your hair pulled back.
  • Make sure you have worn the safety belt, life jacket and noise cancelling headset at all times during your helicopter ride. This equipment is very simple and comfortable to wear. Yes you can hear the pilot talking even though you have worn those headsets.
  • Expect flight cancellations in case of turbulent weather and dangerous flying conditions.

 

Don’ts

  • Don’t be nervous or afraid. Flying is not scary and nervousness will not let you enjoy the ride and the view.
  • Extra clothing to keep you warm is not needed. Helicopters are able to keep temperatures at adjustable levels.
  • Don’t wear extra accessories such as hats, flip flops and loose jewelry.
  • Do not carry heavy luggage and loose items such as keys.
  • Don’t worry about turbulence during your helicopter ride. The sleek body and flexible blades of a helicopter will cut out surrounding turbulence and will let you enjoy a comfortable ride.
