Bose Noise Canceling Headsets - All of our Aircraft are equipped with Bose Aviation Noise Canceling Headsets for a ride that is as quiet as it is comfortable!

Engine Hobbs Meter - Our flight times are based on our engine Hobbs meter, from engine startup to engine shutdown. We will never arbitrarily deduct time from your tour using the add 2/10th's to the flight method used by some operators.

Our Location

We are Los Angeles's most convenient Helicopter Tour Company, and the closest to Downtown Los Angeles, LAX, Hollywood and Santa Monica.  We are located within minutes of the Pacific Ocean in the Los Angeles Basin.  Our year round temperatures average in the low to mid 70's.  We are usually 10 to 20 degrees cooler than the San Fernando Valley in the summer.

Our location at the Hawthorne Airport allows us to offer tours that go further North, South and East than any of the other tour operators can offer!

Direct Freeway Access to and from our location.  We are conveniently located right off of the 105 freeway, between the 405 and the 110 freeway, right below the FAA Control Tower.

Convenient Customer Parking is located right in front of our office.  We offer private on airport parking and direct access to our facility, to protect the privacy of our VIP customers from the Public & the Paparazzi.  We will close our facility to the public as needed on special request.

Los Angeles Helicopter Tours are one of the best helicopter tours in the world and the least known.  We know, because we ask our customers who have taken other Helicopter Tours in Alaska, The Grand Canyon and Hawaii, just how Los Angeles rates.  They rate it at the top of the list.  You'll see just how beautiful LA is from the sky.  You'll recognize famous landmarks, see Star's homes and enjoy the beautiful California coast. 

Our Operating Philosophy

All of our tours are private, professionally flown and narrated by our experienced pilots.  We will never put another customer with your flight! 

There are NO HIDDEN FEES or HIDDEN CHARGES, the price listed on our website is the actual cost.  There are no hidden fees, no taxes charged!

We hold ourselves and our pilots to the highest safety standards.  Our company, and each of our pilots have a Perfect Zero Accident and Zero Incident flight safety record!

Cancellation Policy.  We have never charged any of our customers for not showing up for a tour, showing up late or rescheduling a tour.  All we ask is that you give us as much advanced notice so we can make our Helicopters available to others.

Multiple Passenger discounts. Our prices are based on the number of passengers in your party and not a fixed price per seat rate like most of our competitors.

Aircraft Maintenance.  All of our maintenance is performed on schedule or as needed by professional experienced FAA licensed mechanics.  We don't cut corners ever!  If it's broken or in question, we have it repaired or replaced. 

Noise Sensitivity.  We realize that helicopters can be annoying and loud to the people we fly over.  We maintain minimum heights during our tours, fly designated routes to avoid noise sensitive areas (The Hollywood Bowl, the Hollywood sign, the beach communities, etc.).  All of our tours offer exciting, up close views of Los Angeles for our guests, while minimizing the noise to the many communities we fly over.

Something Special.  So you want to throw a surprise birthday with 20 Mariachis (It won't be our first time).  Going on a special date,  relax in our beautiful office and have a glass of wine or champagne before or after your flight (it's so comfortable here some of our customers hate to leave).  If you have something special in mind, just ask us!

Exceptional Value to our Customers.  Let's face it, helicopters are expensive!  You won't be treated like cattle here at Star Helicopters, we won't throw you into a helicopter full of  strangers, we wont rush you around.  Come relax with us, meet our wonderful staff and have a great flight.

Here are some great questions to ask any company before flying with them!

What helicopter make and model do you fly? (You'll want an R44 Raven II, Bell Jet Ranger 206B3 or AStar AS 350BA)

Do your helicopters have TCAS?  (We wouldn't fly with them if they didn't have TCAS!)

Do you have noise canceling headsets? (Yes, and Wow, what a difference you can really hear!)

Do you add hidden airport fees or fuel surcharge fees to my flight? (We NEVER do! The rate listed on our website is the rate you pay.

Do they honor their own published prices? (WE DO!  Ask to see their Tour Brochure or go to their website to see their pricing.  Don't be afraid to ask them why the tour just doubled in price for you!)

Is my tour private? (ALL OF OURS ARE!)

What is your cancellation policy?  (No Charge, EVER at Star Helicopters!)

  We just ask that you give us as much advance notice as possible
