Helicopter Ride with KL Sky Tour

It was a clear morning when we arrived at Taman Tasik Titiwangsa, Kuala Lumpur for our helicopter ride. I had been here August last year for KL Sky Tour‘s soft launch but I did not get the chance to fly on that day. The queue was so long and I had other engagements to attend to.

This time, I was very lucky to be invited to fly with KL Sky Tour and since there were only 9 of us, we had ample time to lounge about, learn more on KL Sky Tour’s operations and we even witnessed a wedding proposal!

KL Sky Tour at Taman Tasik Titiwangsa, Kuala Lumpur

Located at the heliport of Taman Tasik Titiwangsa, Kuala Lumpur, the KL Sky Tour is open to public every day from 9.30am to 6.30pm daily. There are no night flies though, due to security reasons. Guests can walk-in any time for a tour or guests can also make appointment beforehand to avoid long waiting period.

KL Sky Tour in Taman Tasik Titiwangsa is not the only helicopter ride in operation by the company Cempaka Helicopters. Cempaka Helicopters has been in operation for many years and are established in other states as well, such as Penang, Langkawi, Terengganu and soon, Melaka. So you can be rest assured that the company knows what they’re dealing with.

The pilots are not locals and very well-experienced. Our Captain who flew us that day was Mr. Barry who apologized to us of the bumpy ride due to the strong wind. Yes, it was very windy on that day and since we rode the smaller sized Robinson R44, it was a little exciting as you feel the sudden hard shake when a strong gust of wind hit the side of the helicopter.

Before take off

We only went for the 6 minutes ride which allowed us to see some of Kuala Lumpur’s finest from an aeriel point of view. We saw Kuala Lumpur’s popular attractions such as the Petronas Twin Towers (KLCC), KL Tower and other skyscrapers. We also saw the historical Merdeka Square, National Stadium and National Mosque. Not to mention some of Kuala Lumpur’s amazing heritage buildings like the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, Masjid Jamek and so much more.

Look, it’s KUALA LUMPUR!

KL Sky Tour has two types of helicopters operating in Kuala Lumpur which are the Robinson R44 and Robinson 66. The Robinson R44 can fit four (4) people only, including the pilot whereas the Robinson 66 can fit five (5) people including pilot. However, only the Robinson R44 is in operation at Taman Tasik Titiwangsa. The Robinson 66 is only available for charter.

The cheapest ride would be the 6 minutes ride where you will see part of Kuala Lumpur City Centre and the most expensive ride would be the 45 minutes ride that brings you all the way to Genting Highlands. Price of rides are as below:

*Price is for ride on Robinson R44

Unless you plan to ride alone, the price are quite affordable if you share the ride with your other friends and split the price between you. The price schedule above is for flying with Robinson R44. Since the Robinson 66 can fit 4 people, the price is different and only available for charter or special events.


Plan Your Special Event With KL Sky Tour

How would you like to be proposed after a scenic and romantic ride overlooking Kuala Lumpur City Centre?

On that same day, we managed to steal and share one couple’s memorable marriage proposal. However, this is not the common “boy ask girl to marry” proposal, but it was the other way around.

We were told that the lady has contacted KL Sky Tour prior to the ride to inform of her plan of proposing to her boyfriend. For that, KL Sky Tour prepared a mini board that wrote “Can I Be Your Mrs” and a bouquet of roses that myself and a friend ended up holding as the couple landed on the ground. She looked nervous when she proposed but he did smile and nodded before she ended putting on the ring on her boyfriend’s finger. Yes, it was all good and congratulations were in order as I passed the bouquet of flowers to the lovely couple.


So, if you plan to ask your lady love or partner for marriage after an exciting helicopter ride, do contact KL Sky Tour and the bouquet of roses will be yours, free of charge!

    1. They don’t exactly offer marriage proposals per se, but they can assist those who are planning to propose after the sky ride. Cool right?

  1. I wanna fly on a helicopter on day. This is indeed affordable if going Dutch.

    1. You’re right about that. Maybe you could ask your friends to share together for a great experience.

  2. Hahaha great to see a proposal from the other gender! Really a great view of KL from the helicopter. Too bad I’m afraid of heights. =(

    1. Oh no, it would be tough if you’re afraid of heights, but maybe you could use this as an excuse to overcome your fear?
      I too enjoyed seeing the proposal coming from a girl to a guy. They sure looked happy in the end.

  3. The ride is at a reasonable price for the KL Express…hurmm..should I go and hit my boyfriend? Hahaha

    1. It is priced reasonably, especially if you’re going with someone special, or if you go with 3 people and share the price tag.

  4. Sweet! This looks like a great experience I wonder what it feels like.

  5. Wow!such a great experience!

  6. this is pretty awesome… it is an experience everyone should go through at least once… so when are you going to propose… and to whom leh….. hhehehe

    1. I’ve decided not to propose, LOL! You’re right though, flying in a helicopter looking over a very beautiful view is something everyone should experience – even just for one time.

  7. Aww the propose might be super romantic though hehe =D The helicopter ride is much more exciting than I know!

    1. The proposal was sweet. She looked very nervous but after he said yes, they both looked very happy and excited. Yes, the ride was super awesome!

  8. What an experience! I hate flying but seeing the view might take my anxiety away! 🙂 That was a sweet proposal btw!! <3

    1. There were some people who hated flying too but they said the experience flying in a helicopter is different than in an aeroplane. But, don’t take my word for it. Something like this should be experienced yourself.

    so romantic to do a marriage proposal across the sky!

  10. Woah Bestnyaaaa dapat naik. Alja belum berkesempatan nak naik yang ni. ^^

  11. I always dream to have a helicopter ride. I envy you! Lols. Hope to do this in the future, it looks so much fun.

    1. Hopefully you’ll get to experience yourself too, in the future. It does look fun but it feels so much better when you’re up there in the air!

  12. That’s one thing I would love to experience, I wanna know how it differs from riding an airplane

    1. It definitely feel different. The feeling when it gets in the air, the sound, the view, everything is different. You must try it at least once in your life!

  13. Lhourdes Mercadero says:

    So sweet.For sure it was a great experience.

  14. Wow! Such a great experience & I want to ride this helicopter please!

    1. You can too. Maybe you can gather your friends and share a ride. It would be so much better than riding alone.

  15. Pergh. Great experience betul la. Mahal tapi berbaloi.

    1. Rasanya kalau kongsi dengan kawan2 dalam satu ride tak rasa mahal sangat berbanding kalau kena bayar sorang2. Tapi memang awesome experience.

  16. HI, price display are per ride? Or per pax? For 6mins rm630/pax or rm630/3paxs?

    1. Hi Ida. The price is per ride. So it would be cheaper if you have more friends sharing the ride. Maximum is 3 person (4, if you count the pilot) per ride.

  17. Interested in this helicopter tour, can quota me the price for 2 pax? Thank you
