BACKCOUNTRY PROPOSAL FLIGHT PACKAGES

 

“I had booked to propose to my girlfriend and so as not to raise any suspicions my family pretended this was a surprise for my birthday. The staff at SKY were fantastic, they had been pre briefed on the plan and played along as if they hadn’t spoke to me before, the flight was stunning. We landed in a patch of ice next to a beautiful lake in the mountains and after the proposal our friendly pilot was waiting with a bottle of champagne. It was an amazing experience and an incredible day!”

SKY HELICOPTERS BACKCOUNTRY PROPOSAL PACKAGE

When most people propose to their partners, they’re not nervous about whether they will say yes, but rather, they’re nervous about how they’re going to do it!

There’s more to a proposal then just asking a question and receiving a ring, it’s also about creating an experience that you and your partner will never forget.

The SKY Helicopters Backcountry Proposal Package is the perfect way to ask that special person to share a life together!

The adventure begins as the helicopter departs SKY Hangar (or the Vancouver Harbour Heliport) heading towards the Coast Mountains.  The flight includes a remote backcountry landing, where you can stroll a mountain peak or explore the shores of a secluded alpine lake or glacial stream.

Upon returning to the helicopter, the pilot will have a celebratory bottle of chilled champagne along with etched SKY champagne flutes; ready to toast the engagement!

This package is handled with the utmost discretion by our Reservations experts through to our Flight Team so that the only thing you need to worry about is where to hide the ring!
