Looking out of the window of an airplane can give you a lovely view of the land and sea, but there are many times when it feels more like looking at a tiny map or a diorama than really being able to witness the hustle and bustle of daily life from a unique vantage point. With a helicopter ride, however, you will be able to get a much more open view of the city. With that exciting prospect in mind, before you book a tour, here are a few ways that you can prepare for a smoother helicopter ride:
1. Do Not Wait Until the Last Minute to Reserve Your Flight
Helicopter tours are always very popular, especially during certain seasons. During summer, for example, it is not unusual for a large number of people to start going on vacation en masse. You might find yourself left with no available choices if you wait too long to reserve a helicopter for your own trip.
2. Put On the Right Kind of Clothes for the Flight
Put on light-colored clothing that loosely fits your body if you are going on a tour during the summer, and wear a long-sleeved top, long pants, and a jacket if you are going on a trip in the Spring or Fall.
3. It Is Always Better to Be Early Than To Be Late
Try not to show up at the site one minute before your scheduled flight. You and the pilot will need time to check in and prepare before taking off, and will need to be pre-oriented for safety reasons.
4. Be Prepared for the Possibility of Motion Sickness
According to a study published in the journal Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine, you may be best able to prevent motion sickness by taking promethazine and over-the-counter caffeine before your flight. You can follow them on Twitter for further news and update.
