Great experience. Would definitely do it again. With Dramamine, . Nick was a great pilot. Would definitely do other trips as well. Especially the night flight. Elizabeth
I wanted to write to thank you all for a terrific adventure this past Sat. First of all, all the great folks at 97.5 are absolutely the best. I had a blast with Tony Bruno and Harry Mays on the air winning the prize and then had a great time with the guys at Independence Helicopters up in the air on Sat!
So, thanks to all who put this together. My two sons went with me and we all had a ride to remember for a lifetime. Daniel Green operated the craft with excellent precision and was knowledgeable about the city’s highlights as well.
Thanks to Kevin McAlpin and all the folks at 97.5
Thanks to Peter Breslow for helping to set this up with me.
Thanks to Tom Robinson and Daniel Green for a great flight!
Happy New Year All!!
Thank you again for giving the Philadelphia Concierge Association an amazing helicopter tour of center city. It was so intriguing to see Philly from a different perspective and enjoy how beautiful the city is. Thanks again and I hope to work with you in the future. Best regards.
Many thanks to you for putting together such a fantastic birthday gift package and to our pilot, Dan, for making it such a wonderful experience. Everyone we met was so friendly. From the moment we arrived we were impressed with the entire operation at Independence Helicopters. It was a morning that Chip will talk about for a long time…and of course, he wants to do it again.

Thanks for a wonderful flight. I think we lucked out as the trees were even more beautiful than they were the week before! And, of course the Philadelphia skyline is always stunning.
“Thank you for making our aerial tour of Philadelphia such a memorable tour. It was thrilling viewing the City from 1000 feet above the ground. And with Danny at the “wheel”, we felt safe and secure the entire flight.”
“For my 82nd birthday my kids purchased the experience tour for me. The flight was amazing! Not only did I get to view the Center City Skyline from a bird’s eye view but I also had the opportunity to see my house.”
“The best part of the tour was the personality of the pilot; he was a splendid, educated young man with a great sense of humor”.
