We were thrilled by their kind attitude for understanding our mixup as we mistakenly booked with another group that same day. They were able to accommodate out last minute request. Their prices are great compared to others i’ve seen. The experience is one I recommend highly, we definitely will book again.

Peter was a great pilot!! He has over 30 years of experience and made us feel extremely safe and comfortable. We choose the Malibu coast line tour and rode around sunset. The views were impeccable and Peter was super knowledgeable of the surrounding areas. We saw hiking trails, beautiful homes, celebrity homes, sunset views, and beaches. We would 11/10 recommend flying with Peter and can’t wait to go again soon!

Malibu Coast Tour

Just Amazing, Claudia gives you the warm welcome and super friendly environment and of course professional, she was making my 9 year old son comfortable the moment we arrive since I was worried he will be scared to get in the helicopter, just the great conversation as she makes you feel at home , and our Pilot Mr. Tom , top notch ride and my son decided to sit out front with him and he was so helpful keeping my son calm and just keep him busy with the details of the coast line views and after he turn him in to his Co-pilot ( chatting none stop ). Such a Beautiful experience I had with my son today and bless to seeing my boy enjoy from the moment he sat down inside the helicopter. Thank you again for the amazing service and experience !!

He has many years of experience and loves what he does. You can tell by the smile on his face when he’s flying! We talked a few times over the phone to set up a surprise for my in-laws. He was easy going, very pleasant and his wife Claudia was equally just as wonderful. They will answer all your questions and make sure you have a great time! I 100% recommend Group 3 Helicopters and I absolutely will be returning with my husband.

Great experience. This was our first time doing a helicopter ride, and let me just say choosing group 3 aviation was by far the best choice I made. I would definitely love to come back and do another tour. The people here are so welcoming and friendly. Definitely recommend doing Hollywood and Beaches tour.
