    The helicopters are located at the Heli-tours area, marked at the south of the centre island on your map.
    Walk up to a chopper, hold Y to enter (as with a taxi). It will cost $150, and the flight CAN be skipped.
    There is a helicopter for each yellow (H) marker on the ground, though they are usually not all there at the same time. Return at different times of the day to get them all.

    OWSLA RecordsYou can skip the tours but you have to remember what helicopters you did and did not get on.

    Brett Evans15Do you think it doesn’t count to 100% on Helicopter Tours and get Sightseer Achievement or no?!

    Brett Evans15Hey guys, I did checked the stats and it’s still good because It doesn’t count to 100% on both of them in 5 Helicopter Tours and 14 Bridges to get two achievements is Sightseer and Under The Radar.

    They way I did it is to fly on any helicopter that's already there and skip the tour. Once you land again take any other helicopters that you haven't already taken. If the same helicopters are still there just steal a helicopter (you won't get wanted), and fly all the way to the top of the closest bridge and back. There should be a different helicopter this time, and if there's not just keep trying and you'll get it in no time...Good luck!!

    Dreakon1313Got this in about 15 minutes with this method. As I brought back the heli that I stole, there were usually 3 or 4 of the other tours available and you can knock them all out really quick if you skip them.

    Thanks for the solution!

    To get this achievement, you have to visit the Helitours location (southern part of the central island). There are 6 Helipads, but only 5 tours. The helipad closest to the bridge never gets a helicopter. Each helicopter has its own tour.

    To get the achievement, simply go to the Helitours location and take the tour for each helicopter that is there (you can skip the cutscene of the tour).

    Once you have done it for each of the helicopters that is currently there, take one of the helicopters and fly somewhere with it (I went to the nearest bridge) and then come back and some different helicopters will be there.

    Keep doing this until you have had a chance to take a tour in each of the 5 helicopters and the achievement will pop after you get out of the helicopter from the 5th tour.

    *Note* New helicopters only seem to show up during the day. At night, the same ones will be there if you leave and come back.

    XavygravyI think it's also worth noting that after you skip the cutscene, you can't press Y to exit. You should wait until you exit the helicopter automatically.
