I took my 4-year-old grandson, Conor recently on a,” Saturday morning adventure” and travelled to the nearby Niagara District Airport to look at the planes and helicopters. While in the terminal, I struck up a conversation with Ian Goodwin who happened to be the president of Niagara Falls Air Tours. He told me that aerial tours in their fixed winged airplanes were one of the most popular requests. As long as the weather is nice, the airline operates year-round.

You can also get a spectacular winter aerial view of Niagara Falls by helicopter by contacting Niagara Helicopters at www.niagarahelicopters.com. This company has been around for 50 years operating 7 passenger, Airbus H130 helicopters purchased in 2015. They are located off the Niagara Parkway near the Niagara Spanish Aero Car attraction.
