The aforementioned cerebration applies to aerial from July through September if the Monsoon sweeps into Arizona. That agency lots of thunderstorms. They pop up about every afternoon like clockwork. If you book your Grand Coulee helicopter bout during that time period, affairs are acceptable it will get delayed until the storm passes, or it could get annulled altogether. There are a brace of added things to apperceive about morning air tours. First, the air is smoother, abnormally during summer if accessory turbulence aces up in the afternoons. Secondly, afterimage is better. Again, during summer, there's a brume in the air. It is acquired by dust, pollution, and even backwoods fires.
