Our Story

Scenic Helicopter Tours was founded in 1972 and is a second generation, family owned and operated helicopter tour company. We pride ourselves on providing exceptional experiences and life-long memories of the beautiful area in which we live. Our crew is an award-winning team that is second to none.

We first opened our doors in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, and moved our heliport to its current location at 1949 Winfield Dunn Parkway (Hwy 66), Sevierville, Tennessee in the late 1980s. Since then, Scenic has grown by leaps and bounds. We now maintain a fleet of seven aircraft and offer a large variety of tours to fit most any budget.

In addition to air tours, Scenic Helicopter Tours offers a diversified range of flight services including special events such as weddings, proposals and golf ball drops, charters and 135 charter services, aerial film/video/photography, power line patrol, turbine transitions, search and rescue, and real estate, ranch and wildlife surveys.
