The best time to go on a helicopter tour in Dubai is midday when the sky is relatively clear and there is minimal haze/dust to obstruct your view. Since air pollution is high in Dubai and there is less greenery, the city is enveloped in a thick layer of haze at all times. You can also take the helicopter tour early in the morning but avoid sunset or sunrise time as you will have to endure limited visibility.
For clear visibility, early morning and midday are the best time to go on the helicopter tour of Dubai. At night or during sunset/sunrise times, the haze level is high, making it difficult to view the sights in Dubai. So, visitors are recommended to avoid night time for a helicopter tour and choose a day slot for their helicopter tour.
The boarding point for the helicopter ride in Dubai is the heliport at Dubai Police Academy. It is located near the Mall of the Emirates on Sheikh Zayed Road. The helicopter tour begins with the sights of the iconic landmarks such as Burj Al Arab, Palm Islands, etc. before touring around Dubai city. The tour ends at Dubai Policy Academy allowing you to take back amazing memories of the helicopter tour of Dubai.
Yes, helicopter tours in Dubai have an age restriction to ensure the safety of their guests. Children between the age of 4 and 16 can participate in a helicopter tour but they must be accompanied by an adult on the ride. Children below 4 years are not allowed on helicopter tours and they must weigh at least 16 kg to go on the helicopter ride. 
Guests are recommended to have a light, yet filling meal. Avoid eating anything heavy or greasy that might make you feel nauseous on the helicopter ride. You can have food items such as smoothies, fruit, a light sandwich, biscuits or other similar items. Alternatively, avoid flying on an empty stomach as well.
