Helicopter tours

 Helicopter tour is the most impressive one. From the bird’s eye view one can see the earth as bare as the hand– we used to say often.

But these set phrases express heli tours quite well.
We can get to some remote places by helicopter that hard or impossible to reach by other transport.
In Irkutsk and Baikal there are both small and big helicopters, such as Robinson, Eurocopter and Bell for 3-6 passengers and Mi-8 for up to 22 passengers. By the way, Michail Mil, engineer, founder of Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant, was born in Irkutsk in 1909.
There are helicopters in Irkutsk and on Olkhon Island.
