C O M The High Life From rolling topography to an ever-growing skyline, Austin's landscape lends itself to epic views, which have been elevated (literally) by HELO Austin since its launch in 2015. The locally based company provides helicopter charters in and around Travis County, with tours including the 51Tour of downtown, the scenic Lakes and Hill Country, or the bundled Austin City Limits. Managing partner and primary pilot Justin Little says the air taxi service "can do practically anything when it comes to custom charters." For the fall, Little recommends HELO as an aerial twist on beating traffic to Formula One or as a designated flyer for local wine tours. 10301 FM 969, 512.350.5102, –HM Neighborhood e Team e Concept Featured Items 1.
