Grand Discovery Air Tour
Departs from the Grand Canyon

South Rim Air ToursYou'll experience more than a dozen of the Grand Canyon's most treasured landmarks during a fascinating Grand Canyon airplane tour hosted by Papillon Helicopters, America's award -winning sightseeing  experts. Depart from the Grand Canyon National Park Airport at the South Rim  aboard a luxury Vistaliner, a sightseeing aircraft equipped with  specially-designed windows that offer unobstructed scenic views.  In-flight narration reveals fascinating facts and lore about the  awe-inspiring aerial views.

Zuni Point is recognizable because of its impressive red canyon and cacti-carpeted plateau, as is  the Zuni Corridor, where the Little Colorado joins the Colorado River.  You'll fly near the Desert View Watchtower, a replica of a prehistoric  Indian tower, and the Painted Desert with its rainbow-colored terrain  and impressive Petrified Forest. There's fascinating historical  information from your narrator as you cross over the Navajo Indian  Reservation and fly toward Temple Butte, the Grand Canyon's geologic  mystery. Your Grand Canyon airplane tour takes you over the grandeur of the Canyon's North Rim before moving on to the Kaibab  Plateau and the Kaibab National Forest. In the Paiute Indian language,  Kaibab has the intriguing meaning: "mountain lying down." The area, with its Alpine setting, is a National Forest Scenic Byway.

Before your flight returns to the South Rim, you will visit Imperial Point, the highest viewing area in the Grand  Canyon, and Dragon Corridor, the widest, deepest, and most open point.  In all, this grand tour will be one of the most rewarding and memorable  hours spent in America's natural wonder.
