Our forest research crew flew with Capital Helicopters for 9 days in Kluane National Park in August 2021. Both pilots (Melvin and Matt) were highly skilled at flying in mountainous terrain and landing in tight or challenging spots at times. The helicopter was well-maintained and spotless. Both pilots were also friendly and pleasant to deal with. Given that I have done this sort of work for 3 decades, I give high marks to Melvin, owner of Capital Helicopters.

This is my second helicopter tour with them (I have took a lot of them in many places but this is for me the best one), and if I go back I will go on another tour, each time I have selected a different one, they have from short to long ones, in particular I like the medium to long ones. I must say I only have been there in the winter, and both times the tour was just for us, the attention is amazing, these guys are very friendly they are at your service and make you feel good the whole time. To see the mountains, lakes, lagoons all covered in snow, when you land (this depend on the tour) in a secluded place its really priceless.

I took a great helicopter tour with my parents. We saw dall sheep, wolf, moose, and a thousand of caribou!!!!!! It was incredible. Our pilot, he took us everywhere we want! With his explanation, we enjoyed great "nature". HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!!

I had a tour of the area recently. Melvin was my pilot and words cannot express how incredible an experience it was. From a mesmerizing tour of the landscape to history and geology lessons, I cannot strongly enough emphasize how much you need to take a flight with these guys and experience this. The Yukon is vast and beautiful and driving through it will NOT do it justice.

We visited Whitehorse in early December 2016 and took a 90 minute tour with Melvin over the mountains. Words cannot describe how incredible this experience was, but I will try. It was humbling and inspiring to fly above crisp, snowy peaks on a cold winters' day with the sun blazing and creating beautiful shadows over the landscape. Canada is a beautiful country and I feel so fortunate to have been able to see such a spectacular corner of the world. My jaw was slack the entire trip, it was mesmerizing. Melvin was far more than a pilot (and he's a great pilot). He described the various mountain ranges, lakes and valleys we saw, as well as tidbits he has gleaned from flying researchers out to their remote posts in the area. We learned a ton. Due to his expertise (and a bit of luck) we saw multiple moose, caribou, and a herd of mountain sheep storming up a mountain. It was like an episode of Planet Earth. It is an expensive experience but I highly recommend it if you can afford to.
