The Deal

  • $159 for a 50-minute introductory flight lesson for one ($250 value)

After a 20-minute briefing, each student takes control of a Schweizer Model 300 helicopter for a 30-minute introductory flight with a certified instructor. In addition to guiding each flight, the instructor will also demonstrate various maneuvers and explain the principles of helicopter operation.

New England Helicopter Academy

From their nests at Plymouth Municipal Airport and Norwood Municipal Airport, New England Helicopter Academy’s Schweizer Model 300 helicopters lift fledgling aviators into the skies for flights ranging from introductory runs to intensive training courses. Combining the choppers’ precise handling with academy president Rick Smith’s rigorous training regimen, pilots-to-be learn to expertly handle real-life flying situations such as landing at uncontrolled airports, flying in inclement weather, and airlifting bananas to King Kong. In addition to serving as mid-air classrooms, choppers also treat students to sky-high sightseeing, with training flights often motoring over New England landmarks including the Cape Cod coastline and cities such as Boston and Providence.
