Here at Lake Superior Helicopters we strive to provide some of the best photo flight opportunities in Northern Minnesota. Many photographers and surveyors swear by helicopters for a good reason: Helicopters have the ability to fly lower and slower than an airplane, stop to a hover, back up, and land in confined spaces.
Lake Superior Helicopters is centrally located in Duluth, Minnesota eliminating costly ferry time to some of the most desirable scenic locations in the area. This makes aerial photographs cost-effective for realtors, engineers, contractors or others to capture the perfect shot of a property showing its size, layout, or surroundings that cannot be fully realized from the curb.
No matter your shot, whether you are a videographer or a photographer, we have a helicopter to fit your need. We operate a Robinson R44, and a Bell 206 Jet Ranger each having its own strengths.

The Robinson R44 can carry three passengers and a pilot with a maximum useful load of about 994 pounds. This helicopter cruises at 100 knots and has a main rotor positioned on a mast well above the cockpit keeping it out of valuable shots. These attributes make this helicopter perfect for those flights requiring more than one passenger or a fairy distances over 20 miles.
The generous size of the cockpit allows for two passengers besides the pilot, while still leaving plenty of room for extra gear and equipment. Even with all of this in this aircraft, the R44 is still able to cruise at over 100 knots making it a more economical choice when you have to fairy more than 20 miles.
