Taking pictures with the doors off offers an amazing photography experience where you will have the chance to capture crisp and clear photographs and videos, as there won’t be glass in between your lenses and the magnificent views.
The experienced pilots will bring you to the best locations possible and the helicopter will generally fly at a lower elevation, so that you can capture the best shots.
