Come Fly the Scenic Skies
What is the best way to see the Smokies? Well, if you talk to the great people at Scenic Helicopter Tours, the best way to experience the Smokies is in one of their helicopters. Let one of their professional pilots take you above the crowds, the traffic and the bustle of the Smoky Mountains and see the sights from an entirely different point of view.
Scenic Helicopter has been around, flying over the Great Smoky Mountains National Park since 1972.
