Vegas has to be one of the most striking skylines: drenched in neon, it illuminates the desert for miles around.
Louis from Fly the LV Sky explains why the land of the gambler makes such great flying territory.
What makes flying in Vegas so exciting?
Las Vegas has so much to offer! Conveniently, there are more beautiful clear-weather days for flying here in Vegas than anywhere else in the country. The city and architecture of Las Vegas is completely unique. The desert, mountains, and valleys provide an amazing landscape. The combination of these elements provides opportunities for amazing photography and advanced helicopter training.
What should people expect from their helicopter flight?
This experience is customized to each person. People can expect to be met with a smile and treated like guests. They will get an introduction to the fundamentals and controls of a helicopter before enjoying a 1-hour helicopter flight in one of the most beautiful destinations in America.
With two hours to spare and plenty of fuel, where would you fly?
I would fly to Mesquite Nevada just past the Valley of Fire. Then, making the return trip south along the Virgin River valley, which opens up into Lake Mead, following the shoreline before crossing back to the airport.
Sunrise in the desert or sunset over Vegas?
SUNSET. The sun is descending behind the foothills of Red Rock National Conservation Area. The warmer light brings out all of the deep red hues in the mountains that ring the Las Vegas valley. The shadows grow long and highlight all the features in the terrain. The wispy clouds become orange and pink, and the city lights begin to appear and sparkle: it’s gorgeous!
