Helicopter Rides

  • 220 West Lake Drive Detroit Lakes, MN, 56501 United States (map)

New tours for 2019!! Get a new perspective on DL...from the air! Lake Superior Helicopters will be giving rides from Little Detroit Lake. Each ride consists of a 5 mile loop around Detroit Lakes for $49 (longer rides can be arranged with the ground crew/pilot for additional cost). Check out a YouTube ride:

Lake Superior Helicopters opened its doors in 2009. We conduct helicopter flight training in conjunction with Lake Superior College in Duluth, MN through the fall, winter and spring, as well as offering 15, 30, and 60 mile tours of the Duluth area. During the summer when college students are out of school, we take our helicopters out to approximately 35 fairs and festivals across Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, and South Dakota offering affordable helicopter rides to the public. We are an ever expanding company, with an emphasis on safety. In 2016 Lake Superior Helicopters took up firefighting, fulfilling our first fire contract with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in Cloquet Minnesota. We offer a wide range of helicopter services like photo flights and aerial surveying, and we have recently opened a sister company, Northern Drone Worx, providing customers with the opportunity to utilize drone photography as a supplement to our helicopter operation.
