April 12, 2012 – from a Visitor while visiting: https://grandcanyon.com/rim-to-
(17:42:10) Visitor – I am looking for a airplane ride over the whole Grand Canyon?
(17:42:26) Visitor- Where do I look for this tour?
(17:42:33) Sandy – Unfortunately that doesn’t exist at this time.
(17:42:43) Visitor – Why?
There are 2 reasons:
One – is that the Grand Canyon is 277 miles long and that would be a very long Airplane ride.
Two – is that the Grand Canyon Air Tours are regulated by the Federal Aviation Administration to help Grand Canyon National Park restore natural quiet to the Grand Canyon. As a result of this objective, think of the Grand Canyon as having Air Tour highways in the sky that regulate where an air tour can operate.
So – Air Tours primarily operate from Grand Canyon’s South Rim and from Las Vegas with pre-designated Air Tour routes…which means that all Air Tour Companies fly the same routes.
(17:42:48) Sandy – The best tour for you would be the Grand Discovery Air Tour at this link-
