The Helicopter Tour

The Panama City & Canal Helicopter Tour is our best-seller tour. It consists of a partial 30-minute flight over the capital of Panama, Panama City and then one of the most important commercial sea route (another 30 minutes).

The Beginning of the Panama City & Canal Helicopter Tour

Take off vertically from the Albrook Domestic Airport for this 30-minute helicopter scenic tour of Panama City. After takeoff, it’s straight to the landmarks that have made Panama one of the world’s greatest cities to live or visit. Ascending we’ll observe the entrance of the Panama Canal and the Ancon Hill. Then we’ll fly to Casco Viejo where we can observe the old plazas, monuments, and the parks.

In Miraflores, we can observe the operations of the Old Panama Canal, completed in 1914. These locks were built as a hinge and allow ships up to 289 meters long and up to 5,000 TEUs (1 TEU is equivalent to a 20-foot container).

Flight to  the New Expanded Canal

After visiting the Miraflores Locks not deviate briefly to the east indirection to Cocolí Locks, part of the proposed Canal expansion, which opened on June 26, 2016.

These new locks allow ships up to 366 meters long and up to 13000 TEUs (1 TEU is equivalent to a 20-foot container).

  • Stacy Hudson April 23, 2019

    I love Panama. We had great weather. The flight was incredible. Short but still in our budget.

  • Grant Hendrick April 20, 2019

    Panama by Helicopter, truly the only way to see the Canal and City!

    Reservation and communication process was excellent and very accommodating. The weather turned a bit but we waited it out and had an excellent flight with the doors off, (the only way to go)! Very informative as we passed key points and the entire process was outstanding. I had a couple of first time flyers with me and they both thoroughly enjoyed the entire flight! Highly recommended!
