$139 for a Private 30-minute Helicopter-Piloting Experience ($250 Value)

After a Q&A with a pilot, a preflight briefing will imbue you with basic knowledge about helicopter components, controls, and safety. Next, you'll settle into a leather seat in the cockpit and take the controls under the instruction of an experienced pilot, receiving guidance through a Bose noise-canceling headset. After Westchester County Airport fades into the distance on the climb, you'll also learn to turn and hover while embarking on views of New York City and the Hudson Valley during the flight. The instructor can perform more advanced maneuvers upon request before the ride concludes.

Wings Air Helicopters

Wings Air Helicopters' band of experienced pilots advocate the beauty of airborne travel through charter services, flight lessons, and an aerial film-production studio. Luxury jets, decked out with sectional couches, meeting tables, and bars, grant passengers and their mobile studio audiences safe travels with charter and cargo services. Within helicopter cockpits, Bose noise-canceling headsets block out the hum of spinning propellers to ensure clear communication during charters and tours. Wings Air Films offers a wide range of aerial production services, supplying movie helicopters and camera platforms to capture bird's-eye shots of famous landmarks or Waldo sightings for motion-picture and television industries.
