San Rafael Reef

$420.00

Experience remote. The “Reef” is an amazing geological formation that is 20 minutes by helicopter and hours by car. We fly due west, over the Green and San Rafael rivers. This is where one gets the sense of the West with wide open vistas and endless skies. Soon the amazing San Rafael Reel juts up, seemingly out of nowhere. We will fly the Reef south and view one of the most spectacular rock formations on earth. We will pass just north of Goblin Valley with its remarkable Hoodoos and return back by Canyonlands NP Horseshoe Canyon Unit, swing past the famous Horsethief Ranch and approach the airport from the southwest, passing the Monitor and Merrimac. Sounds like a lot, it is!

Safety is paramount to all our tours. Our helicopters are meticulously maintained.

Each aircraft is also equipped with survival and medical equipment.

Moab Heli X operates the Robinson R44 II and R66 Turbine Helicopters.

The R44’s aerodynamic fuselage optimizes airspeed and fuel economy. Hydraulic controls eliminate feedback forces and provide responsive handling. A low tail-rotor tip speed, newly designed muffler, and large cambered tail reduce flyover noise. These four-seat helicopters are high-performing, reliable, and easy to maintain. With a great view from any seat, and the latest in Robinson technology, our aircraft are a great way to view the vast and remote areas that Moab has to offer.

Raven II helicopters are powered by a Lycoming IO-540 fuel-injected engine. The IO-540 delivers better altitude performance and increased payload.

R66 TURBINE five-seat helicopters are reliable, economical, and easy to maintain. The R66’s spacious 300 lb capacity baggage compartment along with the powerful Rolls Royce RR300 turbine engine provides greater utility. The lightweight RR300 engine operates on readily available Jet A fuel, delivering increased reserve power, additional payload, and improved altitude performance. The R66 meets the FAA’s current crashworthiness regulations with energy-absorbing seats and a crash-worthy fuel system.

Every heli-adventure is different. Check with Moab Heli X for a list of gear needed.
