    There is a review from someone who used them in August on another popular online travel site.

    It is possible the helicopter is down for maintenance or the operator(s) are on vacation.

    that is very possible that the owners are on vacation or the helicopter is down for maintenance.
    i am unsure what aquaman is asking.

    is he asking where is it? the helipad is at the renaissance marina, at the far end right near the renaissance convention ctr.

    or
    that he has not seen it flying around on its tours?

    or
    that he has not seen much chatter on this site re: arubahelitours ?

    Hi Guys

    To be clear. The helicopter used to pass by several times every day. Just have not seen it at all this year. Maybe taking a different route or not operating the same schedule.

    Yep...we see the Police helicopter about twice a day. Their base isn't too far from us. Just don't see the tour one.

    SanNic mentioned in June he saw it parked at the airport, last I checked phones and emails were unanswered. Hope things change in the next 2 weeks.
