A new type of passengers — tourists — are required for helicopter flights. You can find out more about Tourists, Tourist Buildings, and Tourist Terminal here.
Moreover, a special Fuel H is required for Helicopter. You can find more information about Fuel Station H and fuel H production here.
You will also need additional items to send the flight off which can be produced in the Resource Base. Find out more about item production here.

Technically Sparrow is profitable... Below are my notes... Once I noticed no real difference between 30 flights and 100 flights, I slowed down, I update when I need to rush flights... but I got stuck for another month on Silver, so these days I'm rushing planes not helos.

Anyway, below is destination, the # of flights to create the average, and average profitability of the flights. Note, this assumes you are using the 5 fuel in 2 minutes only. If you use 18/10, I think you immediately become unprofitable ... though that may be an exaggeration because I think Snowdonia still gives you like 0.5 profit per flight using 18/10... but seriously, it must be the 5/2 to minimize the hurt.

Yellowstone-100 flights-Avg Profit 7.6 coins
Lake Baikal-52 flights- Avg Profit 9.5 coins
Snowdonia-50 flight-Avg Profit 9.4
Fiordland-50 flights-Avg Profit 9.0
Banff-50 flights-Avg Profit 7.5 coins
Iguazu Falls-49 flights-Avg Profit -39.8
Angel Falls-31 flights-Avg Profit -56.2
Victoria Falls-30 flights-Avg Profit -64.5
Niagra Falls-24 flights- Avg Profit -108.8
Rideau Falls-23 flights-Avg Profit -164.7
Awaiting $$ to waste on Goldfinch, but have 100 of each item for Goldfinch once I have one...

Actually here is a useful tip after completing all stars on the sparrows.
Save a few helipads and copters. I have 3 still in ANF1 as the daily challenges like landing XXX amount of guest planes, Speed up planes ect..
The one where you have to complete so many flights, and this doesn't take very long by sending 2-3 Sparrows of to training flights while you gift, collect, visit or do some building or moving around of buildings.
I just did 40 flights while rearranging my airport side.
