Offering flight training and tours seven days a week for avid air explorers, Alpha Helicopters serves earth-bound humans with a fleet of domesticated helicopters. While soaring 500 feet above ground at speeds of more than 100 miles per hour, riders can catch glimpses of sea dwellers such as manatees, dolphins, and sharks, as well as scenic POVs of landlubbing buildings and Everglades escapees.

There is no age limit, meaning children can levitate in safety seats to the same altitude as their parental counterparts.
