History Channel comes to LA Helicopter Tours

Click Here for “Boys Toys” History Channel featuring LA Helicopter Tours. The History Channel came and flew around Los Angeles with us in the helicopter filming for their new show called Boys Toys. The show focuses on some of the more exciting “toys” out there. Besides the Robinson R44 helicopter and LA Helicopter Tours, the show will also feature flights in the L-39 Albatross which is a jet fighter trainer, and driving in a Lamborghini. We did a few flights with the host and hostess. They were very interested in the helicopter ride. They were also very complementary, saying it was an amazing experience. Aside from being a fun show about jets, helicopters, and sports cars… It is also a contest for the viewers to win flights in the jet in Los Angeles, Rides in the Lambo in Las Vegas, and a Premiere Celebrity Helicopter Tour of Los Angeles.

Los Angeles Airways Helicopter Service- A blast from the past

Los Angeles Airways Sikorsky S-55

Helicopter over Los Angeles in the 1950's

Los Angeles Airways was a helicopter airline offering several services around LA from the 1950′-60’s. The Picture above is a Sikorsky S-55 in flight over downtown Los Angeles. I love this photo! I love it for many reasons, first of all is because I am fascinated by anything and everything to do with Los Angeles history. Secondly, I think it is incredable that nearly 70 years ago there were helicopters flying the same path as we do today on our Los Angeles helicopter tours and other LA helicopter flights.

The Los Angeles Airways helicopter services were available from LAX to Disney Land and many other destinations around the city. Disney Land originally had a helicopter heliport located inside the park near Tomorrowland. It was later moved to the Disneyland hotel. I wish I could go back in time and go for a LA Airways flight!!

The downtown LA obsession continues

Los Angeles helicopter aerial

I have been fixated on taking pictures of downtown Los Angeles from the helicopter lately.

Here is yet another picture of Downtown LA taken on one of our tours. I don’t know why I have been so obsessed with downtown lately. I guess it is because when I fly over the city I get caught up in the moment and feel the need to take a picture.

I took this picture over on a helicopter tour over Staples Center in Downtown Los Angeles. It was almost sunset, LA looks amazing with the twilight and the city lights together! I clearly added a filter that boosts the saturation. There is no way that a photograph can compare to the experience of a helicopter flight over downtown LA on a Los Angeles Helicopter Tour !

Beautiful lighting and definition of the clouds over Los Angeles

LA Helicopter Tours had been blessed with beautiful weather lately. This photo was taken while over Hollywood looking west toward the coast on a sunset helicopter tour. With the days getting shorter this time of year, the optimal time for the perfect sunset helicopter tour is 5:30 pm.

Passing by a police helicopter on the way home from a sunset tour. Not a bad view.
