Sightseeing with Sky Helicopters

On a gloriously sunny Friday afternoon I was whisked away by Sky Helicopters for a meeting at their hangar in Pitt Meadows. Taking off from the helipad on Waterfront Road in Downtown Vancouver, as PA announcements from cruise ships docked at Canada Place echoed throughout the harbour, I hopped in for one unique ride.

Sky Helicopters operates charters, can be hired for executive lunches, meeting, events (the hangar is also an event space), weddings, and can host wine tours, heli-fishing, and a fun afternoon of sightseeing. My trip was very quick but exhilarating all the same as it’s always fun to soar 1000ft above our region to get a new perspective on its beauty — and growth. Here are some of my photos from above Vancouver, Port Moody, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Pitt Meadows:
