Thursday morning's performance comes on the fifth anniversary of Nik Wallenda's televised high-wire walk over Niagara Falls.
Today, Erendira made a decision to go 300 feet above Niagara Falls.
According to organizers, the chopper will hover about 100 metres above the Horseshoe Falls. After several minutes, including a slow flyby during which Mrs. Wallenda waved to spectators below, the helicopter returned to the casino.

"I probably would want to spend all day long up there", she said. She said she did not anticipate the wind to make the hoop shake as much as it did.
Big ideas for Niagara Falls are as common as water falling over them, and many concepts over the years have evaporated like the mist above the Falls.
Their next plans are to travel with the Big Apple Circus as headliners.
The stunt artist is hoping this performance inspires others to leave their comfort zones and reach new heights which many we spoke with say it has done but not to the exact level as Wallenda. "We'll be there for two and a half months in Lincoln Center, where our passion is".
