$950 for Helicopter Ground-School Package ($2,600 Value)

  • 12 weeks of ground school, which culminates in FAA-certification exam (a $2,000 value)
  • A 30-minute discovery flight (a $400 value)
  • Books and materials (a $200 value)

Starting in April, the classes run from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. every Wednesday for 12 weeks. They are helmed by FAA- and DOT-certified instructors and limited to six to eight students. After completing the coursework, novice aviators can try their hands at the airplane controls on a discovery flight. Students younger than 18 need a parent signature to participate.

DWTA Helicopters

Most folks take their dates to a fancy restaurant or a movie theater, but DWTA Helicopters can lead couples to romance at a less conventional locale: the sky. The FAA- and DOT-certified commercial-aircraft carrier whisks guests upward on intimate flights for two, airborne tours of wintertime’s holiday light displays, and jaunts geared toward aerial photography and videography sessions. Flights launch in 30 minutes or less, and the veteran pilots chart their courses with satellite navigation and tracking systems, rather than just following the biggest and strongest seagull. Those who aspire to become pilots themselves can learn skills at the carrier’s ground school, which prepares them for the FAA pilot exam and welcomes them to the skies with an included discovery flight.
