While the summer tourism season has come to an end, the blades are just starting to spin at Beach Helicopter.

The tourism helicopter company, situated between Longhorn Steakhouse and BankTrust, is now open for business and offering flights from their helipad on Highway 98.

They were a regular fixture in the skies above Destin throughout the holiday weekend.

Beach Helicopters joins Timberview Helicopter, which has been operating tourism flights from Destin harbor and Destin Airport all summer aboard their red helicopter.
