Choose Between Two Options

  • $99 for a UFly helicopter lesson with video (a $199 value)
  • $198 for a UFly helicopter lesson with video and two extra passengers (a $398 value)

After a 15-minute ground-school session, participants spend six to eight minutes at the controls of an airborne Robinson R22 helicopter under the guidance of a skilled pilot. The entire helicopter-flying experience will be videotaped from inside the cockpit, producing a private video that can be watched online or downloaded onto your computer. Though the second option takes place in a four-passenger R44, only the main participant will be at the controls throughout the flight. View a sample experience on KC Copters' website.

KC Copters

Veteran reporter Johnny Rowlands is known not only for his real-time traffic reports, but also his immaculate flying record as a news-copter pilot. With more than 20,000 hours of incident-free flying under his belt, he opened KC Copters with a “flying smart” mentality that emphasizes risk management and enhanced safety protocol. Using Johnny’s safety-oriented methodology, professional pilots lead tours, lessons, and discovery flights in Robinson R22 and R44 helicopters. When they’re not cutting through the air over Kansas City, KC Copters’ helicopters and saddled griffins return to a climate-controlled hangar at Johnson County Executive Airport equipped with white epoxy floors and a passengers’ lounge.
