    Hey all,

    I'm planning to use 702 Helicopters for a night flight over the Strip with two buddies during my upcoming trip. How much, if at all, did any of you tip for similar experiences?

    In my mind, I'm thinking $10 each is cool, but don't know if that's really low, or may even more than necessary.

    It's a very short flight if it's just the strip. I would think $10 is good.

    My wife and I had that same flight a year ago. I also think $10 each for the three of you is good.

    I highly recommend grabbing the front seat by the pilot! Great view!

    I tipped $20, but definitely feel $10 is fine. Some tipped none.
    I think I tipped 3 or 5 each way to the driver that picked up from the hotel in the bus. Again, some did not.

    I did Maverick night flight. They were outstanding.

    Is the pilot the stripper, or does the stripper ride shotgun?

    I'm just having trouble envisioning the logistics...:ssst:
