ABOUT BUKU HELICOPTERS:

BUKU takes flight again for 2016, and we’ll be giving a few lucky attendees unprecedented access to our BUKU Helicopter. If you live in New Orleans or are coming from out of town, see the Big Easy like you’ve never seen it before. Adventure awaits as you take flight from the Mercedes Benz Superdome VIP Helipad and lift off for a quick tour of the city of New Orleans. We’ll cruise the skyline over Harrah’s Casino before we make our way over to Mardi Gras world and see BUKU from the air. Take some spectacular snaps over the stages and Power Plant while we orbit over the festival and turn onto the mighty Mississippi River. From there, we will fly deeper into the heart of the city and get you a birds eye view of the Historic Jackson square and the famous French Quarter with the beautiful Lake Pontchartrain off in the distances. We’ll finish up in style as we take the BUKU chopper down Bourbon Street and check out the action.
