VUDA V-C says patronage is less after tourist season. Heli tourism launched with much fanfare may only be a temporary attraction during the tourist season and not a permanent feature, going by the present trend. Cost effectiveness in running the project, appears to be the bottleneck. According the Vice-Chairman of Visakhapatnam Urban Development Authority (VUDA) P. Basanth Kumar, 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 number 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. According to Mr. Basanth Kumar most of the people who had availed the services were tourists from Bengal or Odisha and locals were very few.
