I received the flight as a gift from my wife. It was my first time riding in and flying a helicopter. Ron did a fantastic job. He was very professional and informative. I would highly recommend taking a flight with him. It was worth the three and a half hours of driving to get there. Hopefully, I'll be able to do this again in the future.

My wife comes from long line of pilots, but had never been on a helicopter, so reserved a surprise tour over Pittsburgh for her birthday. The entire process of reserving the appointment was phenomenal. Ron answered each of my phone calls and texts very promptly and answered all of my questions concisely. When we arrived at the hanger, my wife was surprised and absolutely blown away. Meeting Ron for the first time was like meeting an old friend, he is an awesome person. He gave us a tour of the helicopter and it's functions which were gorgeous. Once in the air, it was clear that Ron was extremely experienced. The ride was wonderful. We had such an awesome time and took so many great photos. I would highly recommend Ron and Spiker Helicopters and would also continue doing business with him in the future. It was a pleasure to write this review. Thank you.

Going into this appointment, I had a lot of apprehension about my experience and abilities. But Ron, the pilot, was very professional and cordial with my learning. Once in the air, it was most awesome. It was a wonderful experience, and I would not hesitate to do it again.

My wife and I did the one hour tour of Pittsburgh. I would highly recommend Spiker Helicopters and this tour. I had contacted Ron with short notice which he graciously accommodated us. The tour of Pittsburgh was awesome. This was our first time in a helicopter and am very happy I chose to go with Ron. He is very professional, friendly, and easy to talk to. I took my GoPro with me and got some great shots. Thanks again Ron!

Today, I was able to start a life-long goal of mine - to fly. My wife got this as a birthday present for me and I could not be happier! I got the airport and met Ron, a very patient and professional. You could also tell he has an ease from experience! We hopped in and got flying after a demo of all of the equipment. Before I knew it, I was in control! I will do this again and I plan on continuing (or starting really) to get my license with Ron!

Thank you again! You made my life-time!

I received an introductory flight as a gift from a family member. My flight with Ron far exceeded any expectations I had. He was friendly and extremely knowledgable of the helicopter. Ron made sure I understood everything that was happening throughout the flight, and he let me fly for some of the time. This was an excellent experience and I couldn't stop smiling after the flight. I highly recommend Ron and Spiker Helicopters!

Thanks to Ron Spiker for making my Dad's day! For a Father's Day gift for our 87-year-old dad, we got him the hour-long tour over Pittsburgh with Ron. Dad still hasn't stopped talking about it. He thoroughly enjoyed it! We have shown photos and videos and have encouraged others to contact Ron for a flight! THANKS AGAIN RON!!!! You're the BEST!

We had the absolute best time with Ron as our pilot, he gave us an experience we will never forget. We originally planned a day several weeks in advance and coming closer to our date, we realized it was going to storm. We had texted Ron and he made re scheduling so easy and was flexible. When we got there he was so professional and nice, you can tell he is experienced. Absolute 11/10. He was above and beyond. The best. Thanks Ron!!!!

Thank you Ron for making my wife's birthday that much more special and adding the wow factor to my son's first time in a helicopter. They have not stopped talking about the overall experience, the educational information and allowing my son to turn on the runway lights. We will see you again.

My boyfriend and I took our tour in Pittsburgh this evening and the only way to describe this experience is breath taking. Ron the pilot is very professional, cautious, and compassionate about flying and making sure you really do enjoy the entire trip. We absolutely plan to fly with him again, possibly soon for Christmas!

Thank you again Ron for honestly making our flight above and beyond our expectations!

My friend and I had an absolute blast during our scenic helicopter ride over Pittsburgh. Ron the pilot is the best. My friend is a professional photographer and Ron made sure he got some great shots of the city from the air. I would highly recommend this experience. Many thanks to all who made it possible.

My wife and I went on the tour of downtown this past weekend for our first anniversary. It was one of the best experiences we have ever had, and Ron did a fantastic job. He made the ride enjoyable, and put my wifs nerves at ease with his great flying ability (was a little windy). I've grown up in Pittsburgh, and have seen the city just about every way, but this was by far the best! Rons communication was great (had to reschedule because of weather) and was very flexible with scheduling a day/time that would offer the best experience. We can't wait to book another tour for sunset! Thank you, Ron, for helping to make a very memorable anniversary!!

What a fantastic ride. Ron was so kind and knowledgeable about the area. Setting up the appointment was a breeze, and finding the airport was easy. Great ride with a great Pilot. You can tell he loves flying. I felt safe and comfortable. Great romantic date for two! I will be telling everyone I know about Spiker Tours.

Ron was awesome. I was a little nervous, but he made the experience great. My first booking was cancelled due to rain, but I didn't mind because he had good communication and kept me posted about the weather. I highly recommend him! I had a great time!

0 #28 Bucket list experienceDana 2016-05-16 14:52
I recently booked a helicopter tour with Ron for my dad's birthday. Ron was extremely accommodating as I was trying to schedule a day that wasn't extremely cloudy or rainy... Which is difficult in Pgh. My dad and I had an amazing time... It was definitely something we can cross off our bucket list but would also want to experience again!!!

0 #27 RE: Comments & ReviewsNorbert and Meghan 2016-05-08 22:46
I recently proposed to my girlfriend (now Fiance!) on one of Ron's Pittsburgh engagement flights. The views were incredible and it was every bit of the perfect experience I hoped it would be. Ron was very accommodating and did everything he could to make the moment special. I would recommend him and his services to anyone!

*As a side note: I am terrified of heights and thought the helicopter ride would be a challenge to get over. However, to my pleasant surprise, the ride was very smooth and I was never worried for a second. That is, I think, due in large part to Ron's piloting skills, which he has had decades to perfect!

I bought this as a Valentine's present for my husband, as it is something he has always wanted to do. The experience far exceeded our expectations! The pilot spent the first 20 minutes explaining the controls, then told my husband to fly on his own. Of course, the pilot had a set of controls as well to take over if he needed to, but my husband not only got a lesson, but he was able to fly. It was an unforgettable experience for both of us. Thank you for making me the hero of gift giving. I couldn't have asked for more!

The tour was a Valentine's Day gift for my boyfriend. We finally had some nice weather and booked our tour. The pilot, Ron, was such a cool guy. Talked to us about landmarks and answered all questions we had. It was such a peaceful ride too! I highly recommend the helicopter tour for anyone interested. Great memories! I was very pleased with the entire experience.

I surprised my husband with a helicopter flight with Ron. It was awesome! He was really knowledgeable about all-things-helicopter and about the area that we flew around. He was very professional and sweet! It was awesome to see the city from all different angles in the air. I would definitely recommend doing this at least once! Was totally worth it.

This was the best birthday present I could've ever thought of for my girlfriend's 30th birthday. We had a blast! Ron is a very skilled pilot. He's incredibly knowledgeable of the surrounding areas, making a great tour guide giving detail about everything we flew over! He's also extensively knowledged in his aircraft as well as other types of helicopters and answered all of our crazy questions with ease. The flight was so smooth, from the time of takeoff to landing. I am definitely going to recommend him to others and I can't wait to come again! Thanks Ron!

0 #16 Scenic Ride over PittsburghJamie 2016-01-01 23:54
I suprised my boyfriend with a helicopter ride over Pittsburgh and we both thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. During the ride, Ron pointed out exactly where we were and what we were flying over, which gave us the ability to recognize places we often drive through from such a unique perspective. Then he flew us very close to the city of Pittsburgh from a couple different angles, giving us breathtaking views. Ron was a great pilot and we are hoping to ride with him again sometime in the near future. I highly recommend flying with Spiker Helicopters, which will give you a life changing experience. Thanks again for such an awesome time!

My husband booked a helicopter ride with Ron for my birthday. It was fantastic! Ron educated us regarding aircraft safety checklists, pointed out many Pittsburgh landmarks, and shared general observations (I.e. so many people have pools he rarely sees anyone swimming). We highly recommend this memorable experience!

I was a bit nervous about it until I met the pilot. He's a professional and skillful pilot that becomes obvious as soon as you lift off. I told Ron that he will b sick of me after this first flight. I plan on returning many times. I've recommended it to my family and anyone else looking for an amazing experience. It truly was amazing and should b experienced by all. Thank you Ron. You are great.
