Helicopters are so beloved that they've earned countless nicknames, such as "choppers," "harleys" (short for harley-copters), and "motor-cycles," for the many cycling motors they contain. Be an easy glider with this Groupon.

During the 15-minute tours, passengers soar past the skyline, affording opportunities to snap aerial photos of the Empire State Building, Central Park, and the Statue of Liberty's good side. Passengers receive a framed photo to commemorate the experience.
Manhattan Helicopters' staff zips passengers past the Big Apple's most iconic attractions while narrating trips in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, or Chinese. Each one of their pilots must log thousands of training hours before steering whirlybirds past landmarks such as the 9/11 Memorial, Times Square, and Madison Square Garden. Voice-activated Bose headsets provide crystal-clear communications between pilots and riders, and large windows deliver unobstructed views of Governors Island and the distant Palisades. Plush leather seats equipped with cup holders equally absorb chair-gripping excitement and reveries more peaceful than a nap in a stork's bindle.
