$169 for a 90-Minute Discovery-Flight Experience on a Helicopter ($395 Value)
An instructor starts the experience with a preflight lesson, which covers take off, landing, preflight helicopter inspection, manipulating controls during flight, and a safety briefing. The actual in-air time is 30 minutes, during which the student spends 20–25 minutes steering the Robinson R22 Beta II helicopter. Once the chopper is safely on the ground, the student gets a chance to ask questions about the industry and what it takes to become a pilot. Students will also have the chance to take a commemorative photo with the helicopter.
With its fleet of choppers and experienced instructors, Elite Helicopters keeps the focus on learning. The accredited flight school helps students acquire fundamental flying skills and build up pilot ratings.
