AMAZING EXPERIENCE! – The Sky’s The Limit tour with Robin is one of the most AMAZING thing we have done in LA!!!! For our 11th Wedding Anniversary Celebration, my husband & I decided to take our first helicopter tour. We searched all the LA aviation options & chose Celebrity Helicopters for two reasons: how amazing & affordable it's tours are & because most of the money from the tours goes to teach LA youth learn how to fly. We had truly an unforgettable experience, exploring LA cities and beaches from the sky was breath taking, really wow. Our tour covered everything we wanted to see and much more!!!! Our pilot and owner of Celebrity Helicopters, Inc. Robin was so friendly, knowledgable & fun, always with a big smile:-) Robin & his friendly staff gave us the most wonderful service, we cannot wait to use their service again. After our AMAZING helicopter tour, we got the opportunity to meet a few of the kids that Robin teaches how to fly. We loved talking with them. The fact that lots of the money from the tours goes to help these kids achieve their dreams is something truly remarkable. Flying for a Cause is the best way to describe what Robin's company stands for. Robin, THANK YOU for sharing with us THE most amazing helicopter tour, for making our wedding anniversary be soo special & wonderful, and for helping Tomorrow's Aeronautical Museum and it's youth achieve their dreams!!!!! Amelia & David
Excellent Tour! – I took my 12 year old niece for our first helicopter ride over LA and Hollywood in August. The phone conversations I had with the Celebrity staff prior to our appointment provided a great example of superior customer service. I never felt rushed or that my questions were unimportant. Our pilot was exceptional and provided us with a very detailed tour of everything we wanted to see and much, much more – even dolphins jumping in the water. My niece sat up front with him and took loads of pictures. While I've been to the area several times there is nothing like seeing it from the air. I was somewhat skeptical because of some of the reviews I read but the positives outweighed the negatives. We are certainly glad we did it – it was a great experience and a really fun part of our vacation. We highly recommend it.
Good Times!! – We took my friend on a helicopter ride for her birthday. It was her first time in a helicopter and my second. We all had a blast! we did a tour along the cost it was beautiful. Robin, the pilot, is great and entertaining! A great gift for anyone or just for fun! :)
AWESOME!! – had a blast flying up in a helicopter for the first time. we toured along the coast. it was very comfortable and just amazing! the pilot, robin is the coolest pilot ever! i strongly recommend them :) you wont be disappointed!
The ride of my life! – The tours are inexpensive and fun… Speaking from a personal experience! It was amazing. That was my first time flying in a helicopter and I enjoyed it. The pilot was very friendly and down to earth… If you ever want to take a tour go with Celebrity Helicopters!
Great ride! – My first time up in a helicopter and I wasn't disappointed. Started off on the coast before heading inland to some great views of multi million dollar homes (including the Playboy Mansion), the Hollywood sign, and the Sunset Strip. The tour even darted between the downtown skyscrapers before heading back. The ride was very comfortable and our guide was great. Well worth it.
superior flight training – I started with a different flight school but here they really showed me how to fly helicopters
you can go your own pace fly daily or even couple times daily or just once a week
i did my commercial and my flight instructor with celebrity helicopters and it went just fine
you are able to do the written test in their testing room
there is the opportunity to go on sightseeing tours and film productions in the copilot seat to build hours
check it out - great company
Good Old Times ... We had a blast with Celebrity Helicopters.. – We took the Celebrity Homes Tour with Celebrity Helicopters and we really had a blast with their pilot, Robin. I will recommend it to my friends because the tours had lots of character and were really unique. I think they offer a really "cool" service for couples looking to have a fun night out. I wouldn't expect anything over the top, but I'd describe it as a good hole in the wall restaurant with really good food, or a mom & pop operation which lots of charm. They also operate a museum in the facility that helps inner city kids and have all these recognitions from Congress and Newspapres... really cool... so it felt really good to contribute to the cause. Their website has fun photos of the tours taken from actual people apparently, so it's almost accurate. We did get the Hollywood Upgrade and the champagne and hor's devours were cute snacks.. I wouldn't expect shrimp cocktail or anything super extravagant.. But I think it's a really special company and it was a really fun experience with my friends. My advice is, have them pick you up at another airport if you are trying to impress someone. Their location in Compton may be a little hectic as it is also a facility that operates the Non-Profit After School Program... which you may really think is cool.. But if you are image sensitive I'd say have them pick you up in Santa Monica. They were a little behind schedule, so don't expect them to be on time... just be flexible and I guarantee they will make up for it with the tour.
Great Company & Customer Service – CELEBRITY HELICOPTERS IS A GREAT HELICOPTER COMPANY. I TOOK THE DELUXE NIGHT TOUR, AND IT WAS AWESOME. ED TOOK MY RESERVATION, AND WAS VERY COURTEOUS AND HELPFUL. ONCE I REACHED THE MUSEUM, WHILE I WAS WAITING, SOME OF THE KIDS IN THE AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM SHOWED ME AROUND. THEY DID AN IMPRESSIVE JOB WITH IT, TOO. I HAD AN AMAZING TIME. THIS TOUR TOOK ME AND MY FREINDS AROUND CELEBRITY HOMES AND MANY MORE PLACES. I CAN'T WAIT TO FLY WITH THEM AGAIN.
TERRIBLE! – Worst experience of my life-do not go to this place for any special occasion! They were rude, unprofessional, and kept us an hour after our supposed takeoff time so that we could go with another couple when we were promised a private tour. The flights go nowhere near the sights-we were supposed to see the Hollywood sign, Dodger stadium, celebrity homes, etc., and we saw the Hollywood sign about 5 miles away (so we could barely even see it). My boyfriend and I also purchased the "Hollywood Upgrade" and they failed to give us the bottle of champagne, and don't be deceived-the picture on the website of the hors d'oeuvres is NOT what you will get. There was supposed to be fruit, cheese, etc., but there were two small bags of pretzels and a chocolate lolipop. The "specialty frame" they mention is actually a sticker that boarders a polaroid picture. I tried calling and e-mailing to discuss this with the company, and I have not received any response. This place is embarassing-don't waste your money.
