For the last 8 months I have been working for a helicopter tour company in Las Vegas, NV. We mostly fly people to the western end of the Grand Canyon by helicopter, but we also have airplanes.
Our fleet of 3 Beechcraft 1900D’s take tourist to Tusayan, AZ where they then get onto a trolley/bus and head into the Grand Canyon National Park. The flight to Tusayan is just under an hour, compared to almost 5 by car or bus. Customers have the choice of two different tours while at the canyon, two stops by trolley or one stop and a helicopter flight over the canyon.
I am the reserve driver for the Grand Canyon tour. So, when three planes get booked I get on one and fly out to drive the second trolley/bus.(Not a bad commute to work!) Once we land in Tusayan I quickly pre-trip the trolley, load up the customers and the tour begins.
