About Scenic Helicopter Tours and Charter Services

Founded in 1972, Scenic Helicopter Tours began offering aerial tours over and around the Great Smoky Mountain National Park with just one helicopter. Through the years we have added multiple aircraft to our fleet along with additional aerial services including: Door-to-Door VIP Services, Real-Estate Reconnaissance and Photography for Land Developers, News Gathering, Film Production, Movie Cinematography, and more.

Three cornerstones to Scenic Helicopter Tours & Charters' mission are SAFETY, SERVICE & SPEED.


Safety – Your personal safety is our highest priority. Our pilots are rigorously trained and educated in the latest flight techniques and safety guidelines set forth by the Federal Aviation Administration.


Service – Scenic Helicopter Charters has Six (6) FAA Certified Helicopters that can be to your present location in a matter of minutes. The FAA requires a minimum of 150 hours flight time to be a commercial pilot (transport passengers for hire). To qualify as a pilot for Scenic Helicopter Charters our pilots must have a minimum of at least 1000 hours of flight time. Quite simply we expect more so that we can offer Greater Service and Flight Expertise to our clients.


Speed – Speed is quite often the determining factor in any victory whether it be in a sports arena or in the Boardroom. Swift movement and a keen mind gives today’s businessperson the edge over their competition. Scenic Helicopter Charter Services can carry you to and from any meeting, plant inspection, aerial reconnaissance, or important event. We will get you to your destination while maximizing your efficiency and minimizing wasted time.


Many Corporations have realized a need for fast professional executive travel and transportation. Leaders such as yourself have full schedules and find it necessary to view company functions first hand. Your time is an important resource and must be managed wisely. Helicopter travel provides a resource that allows you to multitask with greater speed and versatility than ever before. You will be able to move quickly from home to office or from office to company functions. Helicopters are faster and more economical in most cases than conventional ground transportation such as rental cars or Limousine services
