Blue Ridge Helicopters will be back at the Marietta Museum of History Aviation Wing selling helicopter rides over Marietta on Saturday, March 1st from 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM, weather permitting. The cost of a helicopter ride is $40 per person (cash only) for a six to eight mile round trip aerial tour of Marietta allowing passengers to see the Big Chicken, White Water, Kennestone Hospital, Kennesaw Mountain, Marietta Square, Marietta Conference Center and more from the air.
Each ride can include up to three passengers in the helicopter at a time provided overall weight restrictions are within the limitations of the aircraft (no one over 270 lbs.). There are no age restrictions, but cost is per seat so price for a child is same as an adult. Reservations are not necessary because rides are on a first come, first serve basis, but wait times normally do not exceed 30 minutes.
A portion of the cost of the ride benefits the Marietta Museum of History Aviation Wing.
All additional questions about the helicopter operations should be directed to Blue Ridge Helicopters at 770-963-0590. In the event of inclement weather, please call the Museum of History at 770-794-5710 to see if the rides are taking place.
