Heli tourism, launched with much fanfare, may only be a temporary attraction during the tourist season and not a permanent feature according to present trend. Cost effectiveness in running the project appears to be the bottleneck.

Vice Chairman of VUDA P.Basant Kumar said that heli tourism will be part of the fixture only during festivals and tourist seasons as it is difficult to keep the helicopter idle or have fewer member of people using it. To make the project viable, the helicopter needs at least 40 to 60 users on a daily basis and post the tourism season, it dropped to 18 or 20.

He said that heli tourism even did not click in Goa and Delhi.
