$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.
