BC Helicopters: On Top of the World.
BC Helicopters brings people to amazing and remote places so they can experience the wondrous beauty around them. Mischa, the pilot, tells me that one of his favourite parts of the flight is the first moments after landing. He opens the door and the look of pure joy and amazement on passenger’s faces makes every flight worth it. We should know, I think we spent 15 min just ooo-ing and awww-ing at the views when we’ve gone up this past summer. We wanted to give Ashley and Verlon Mundall, of Dragonflight Photography, a HUGE thank you and shout out for the introduction to Mischa, as it was their engagement session when we first met Mischa.
Mischa knows where all of the cool and unique spots are. What’s really amazing is to think that in some places he takes you, you may very well be the first person to ever set foot on that mountain ground. We’ve seen lakes so blue and clear, they shine like gemstones. It’s one of the greatest experiences we’ve had and it’s not something that is easily forgotten.
The moment you get out of the helicopter, you’re perched on some of the highest peaks of the coastal mountains, all you can notice is how quiet it is. Not a sound. No cars, no traffic, no voices, nothing. And the air is so clear and clean you just want to lay down and soak it all in, in silence. It is certainly my happy place. I used to be a beach girl but after getting to experience the atmosphere up there, I can’t wait to go back.
Not only is Mischa a great pilot, instructor and videographer, he’s also been lighting and photo assistant extraordinaire on our past trips. If you’ve never been, I highly recommend it. You’ll want to keep going back, again and again!
Here are some videos that he and his team have shot of the amazing beauty up in that region. It does not disappoint!
The most amazing valleys.
The bluest lakes I’ve ever seen, even more than the Rocky Mountain lakes.
