After some tragic accidents and numerous noise complaints, helicopter tours below the rim of the Grand Canyon have been strictly regulated to only certain areas of the canyon. Some Grand Canyon helicopter tours offer tours outside the park boundaries as a way around these strict rules. Helicopters fly to the Havasupai and Hualapai Indian Lands, and east over the Little Colorado River and Navajo lands, too. While there have been accidents, most tour operators have been offering helicopter tours over the canyon for decades without a problem. Many also offer quieter helicopters for a better experience.
