ABOUT 

The closest tour operator to Downtown Boston, just five minutes away in a helicopter!

OUR STORY

Helicopter Tour Boston, a part of Blue Hill Helicopters was founded over 13 years ago by experienced pilots at Norwood Memorial Airport (KOWD). We decided that Boston needed a modern safe helicopter company that could provide a knowledgeable tour of Boston in a new well maintained helicopter. With over 13 years in business and 15,000 flight hours taking customers on tours of Boston, we believe we provide the best experience in Boston. We are the closest tour operator to the city, we own our aircraft and take pride in our customers from the minute they walk in the door. All our pilots are professional flight instructors that have gone through FAA certified flight instruction. Safety is our number one priority.
