In our passage through Rio de Janeiro, during IBAS, I decided to know Rio de Janeiro from above, so I met the company of Comandante Nobre and its travel agency that operates helicopters for panoramic flights and air taxi services such as brides, executives and others.
We always have the idea that flying helicopter over cities like Rio de Janeiro is something very expensive. It is not cheap, but also not absurdly dear.
Talking with him about the daily life of a helicopter pilot, he said that in some cases people seeking this kind of service to know Rio from above, are couples or singles, and there are people who have tried to make requests for Marriages, obviously I asked curiously if they had more people accepting or denying the request, and according to him, only one had a request denied.
He also said every flight is like the first, and have as an office a helicopter flying over the wonders of Rio is a great profession.
I will pass on to you the types of flights and its costs, for people who want to make this kind of flight have an idea of how it works:
