About the Helicopter

The Robinson R44 is a light, single-engine helicopter. The enclosed cabin has two rows of side-by-side seating for the pilot and up to three passengers. The bubble canopy offers great views, so be sure to bring your camera!

The helicopter flies from the Museum between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. daily from May through October. Flights vary in length from 6 to 20 minutes. Pilots will point out sites and make observations as they fly. Helicopter rides are operated by Héli-Tremblant.
