Exhilarating and Adventurous!! – Blue Ridge Helicopter Tours – North Ga Mountains

The Mountain Life Team Blogger September 26, 2012

Are you interested in an adventure of a lifetime?  Do you like to try new and exciting things?  If this describes you, you should make a plan to take a ride at  Blue Ridge Helicopter Tours  There are so many amazing sites to see in the North Georgia Mountains and I don’t think there is a better way to view God’s beauty than 500 feet above ground.

There are a variety of packages available to purchase.  One of the most popular is the $40 introductory package.  This is great, especially if you are limited in experience or possibly a little fearful of flying.  This is an 8 mile trip that takes approximately 8 minutes.  In the various packages you can purchase, some of the sites you will see can include downtown Blue Ridge, Lake Blue Ridge, Toccoa River, Ocoee River, Amicolola Falls and the Burra Burra Mines.

Blue Ridge Helicopter Tours is based in Lawrenceville, Georgia but they have a branch  here in Blue Ridge.  Owner, Ron Carroll was introduced to helicopters as he and his fellow infantrymen were transported onto the front lines in the jungles of Vietnam. Ron Carroll never dreamed that he would one day not only fly and own his own helicopters, but train new generations of helicopter pilots. With all of Ron’s and his teams 40 years of experience, you can feel safe in knowing this company knows what they are doing.  That is something that I know is important to all of us!!

Once you experience your first helicopter flight, you may even decide to take flight instruction lessons which they offer as well!  If not, I know you will never forget your day in the helicopter as well as all the gorgeous views you will behold!  Now is the time, beautiful fall is right around the corner.
