Helicopters are superior to planes in almost every way: vertical takeoff and landing, ability to maneuver in any direction, and more likely to deposit Green Day outside your high school because they heard there was "a pretty cool prom goin' down." Let your dreams soar with this Groupon.

During 30-minute discovery flights, a certified flight instructor shows the student the ropes of a Robinson R22 helicopter and answers any questions about further pilot training.
For the 15-minute Lake Norman tour, the pilot and passengers take off from Lake Norman Airpark and soar high over the lake’s 500 miles of crystal-clear shoreline.
Queen City Helicopter Corp.
When the Robinson helicopters at Queen City Helicopter Corp. aren’t acting as airborne classrooms for aspiring pilots, they’re whisking passengers on aerial tours of nearby landmarks. The peaks of Crowders Mountain, the sports arenas of uptown Charlotte, and the horses and buggies of the Charlotte Motor Speedway loom large in the windows of the chopper after it takes off from the company's very own private, FAA-approved heliport. On the ground at the FAA flight school, pilots safely test their abilities inside a flight simulator and study in the onsite classroom.
