3 Ways to Capture Memories on Your First Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour

Are you ready to embark on your first Maverick Helicopters tour? Get ready for the ride of your life. We can't wait to treat you to bird's-eye views of some of the world's most majestic attractions. But first, we want to make sure you hang onto your experience for years to come. Before you board the helicopter, learn three of our favorite ways to turn your once-in-a-lifetime moments in the sky into lifelong memories.

  1. Write About Your Flight

    When you remember an experience, you're actually remembering your last memory of the experience. Whether you take a long helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon or a quick nighttime tour of the Las Vegas Strip, it's sure to be an unbelievable ride, and you'll want to hang onto your memories of it. A great way to trigger more vivid recollections later is to recall the experience while it's still fresh in your mind. Describe your helicopter tour to a friend afterward (just try not to make them too jealous), or better yet, write it down in a journal. Don't worry about your word choice or grammar; just describe the views and how they made you feel. Images can't fully capture your emotions, so journaling adds another dimension to your photos and video. Later, you'll be glad you documented a fresh, firsthand account of your helicopter tour.

  2. Take Panoramic Photos

    Camera lenses can't quite capture the sweeping perspective from a helicopter… but that doesn't stop anyone from trying. Fortunately, many smartphones now have panoramic photo modes, which stitch different pictures together to capture one long shot of the landscape. Smarter technology also makes it easier to capture the rich colors of desert sunsets, the nighttime lights on the Strip and vast expanses of red rock formations and valleys. Every Maverick helicopter Grand Canyon tour reveals unbelievable views, so learn how to use your phone's panoramic feature ahead of time and get at least one or two shots from your seat.

  3. Take Amazing Photos and Video from Your Smartphone

    You can capture fantastic photos and videos of your experience without the need for a professional camera. Your smartphone is more than enough! Some photography tips we recommend include exploring aspect ratios, utilizing time-lapse, taking slow-motion video, snapping close-up shots, and more! For more information, click here.
