The pilot may provide commentary, pointing out notable landmarks such as the villages of Fira and Oia, perched precariously on the edge of the caldera, as well as the volcano (depending on the helicopter type and the location of the landing helipad)

Descent and Landing: As the helicopter descends towards the Santorini private helipad, passengers are treated to stunning views of the island's volcanic landscape, including the rugged coastline and crescent-shaped caldera. (depending on the helicopter type and the location of the landing helipad). With a gentle touchdown in the designated area, the helicopter completes its journey, and passengers disembark, ready to explore all that Santorini has to offer.
