Book with us today and enjoy a stunning round trip scenic mountain flight with three of your friends from the Bend Airport or Sisters airport to Madras, Oregon. Along the way we’ll explore as much of our magnificent snow capped Cascade Range as possible. The Cascades are a unique part of the Pacific Ocean’s Ring of Fire, the ring of volcanoes and associated mountains around the Pacific Ocean. In fact all of the eruptions in the contiguous United States over the last 200 years have been from Cascade volcanoes. You’ll be front and center to see the after effects of our last “big one” at Broken Top Mountain 100,000 years ago, revealing the colorful insides of our very own complex stratovolcano and high altitude glacial lake at 10,000 feet.
Our Heli Skydives depart from our private heliport in Bend, Oregon and Sunriver. The flight is hosted aboard one of our comfortable and air-conditioned green helicopters with wraparound windows. These aircraft have been designed for sightseeing and feature a nearly 180 degree field of view, clear passenger to pilot communications and in cabin air-conditioning.
You’ll love getting up close to the Cascades and views of Central Oregon that are all yours to discover. Combine with bachelor parties, corporate events, team building and more.
