    Helicopter flights in Santiago de Chile are well known, and used for work in vineyards prior to harvest. They dissipate the cold night air that can freeze grapes, or in cherry plantation fields to dry these delicious fruits before a rain event can damage the entire plantation. In addition, helicopters are widely used in summer to support the work of firefighters.

    However, there is another emerging use for these incredible machines, very common in other countries and increasingly on the rise in Chile — the transfer of people, whether locals to their summer homes (usually short trips of up to 2 hours), foreign tourists who prefer to save time and get to know Chile from above in route to the many famous vineyards of the Colchagua Valley, or in winter season for a quick arrival to the winter ski resorts. It is also increasingly common for Chilean tourists to venture into this type of tourism, either for a helicopter flight over Santiago del Chile, the country’s beautiful capital, or even tailor-made events for an unusual marriage proposal in the air.

    In this article, we are going to present the different ways to have an unforgettable helicopter flight in Santiago de Chile’s experience with the best quality helicopter services available at Flapper.
