Helicopter and airplane air tours are also available. Flights leave from Las Vegas every day of the year. The flight plan includes Lake Mead and Hoover Dam. Helicopters fly at a lower altitude than airplanes, which usually include Hoover Dam as part of a Grand Canyon West Rim air package. Tour duration ranges from 3.5 hours to 5.5 hours. Both packages bundle free hotel shuttle service. The new Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge, a.k.a the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, is a sight to behold. Started in 2005 and completed in October 2010, the structure is already being revered as one of this century’s elite engineering projects. Epic in scale, the bridge is best experienced from the air. So get ready to travel this wonderfull destination of Las Vejas to catch sight of amazing scenery with your own eyes.
