Destination Tower Butte
Tower Butte is the latest, most uniquely qualified adventure destination for a Helicopter. The Navajo Nation opened up access to Tower Butte recently for visitors late 2012. The breath taking vista is almost overwhelming as you take in a 360 degree view of the panorama including Lake Powell, Navajo Mountain, LeChee Rock and the Vermilion Cliffs. Tower Butte stands as one of the most recognizable landmarks in the Lake Powell Navajo Tribal Park on the Navajo Nation. This majestic Butte towers over 1000 feet above Lake Powell, at an elevation of 5282 feet above sea level. Until recently, this land mark had never been stepped on, and today only a handful may have the opportunity to do so.
Tower Butte stands today as it has for the millennia. The Navajo Nation and Unlimited Aviation proudly shares this Tower Butte helicopter experience with you. In all the splendor and beauty that Tower Butte has to offer, there is certainly interest for everyone of all ages. Learn more about the Tower Butte Helicopter Flight.
The Robinson R44
The R44 is a single-engined helicopter with two-bladed rotor. The enclosed cabin and cockpit have two rows of side-by-side seating for a pilot and three passengers. Designed during the 1980s by Frank Robinson and his staff of engineers, the R44 first flew on March 31, 1990. The Robinson helicopter has been in service for over 20 years. Unlimited Aviation has now chosen to introduce this helicopter to passengers seeking flights around the Lake Powell area. This helicopter has been operated by Unlimited Aviation for the past 3 years. Recently, Robinson introduced the Raven II featuring a more powerful, fuel-injected engine and wider blades, allowing a higher gross weight and improved altitude performance.
