Great fun! I bought this Groupon as a birthday gift for my sister who didn't want to go alone. There's a pre-flight orientation and a lot of wait time as you wait for your turn, but the staff entertained us with Segway rides and ping pong games. My instructor Leon was very attentive and provided instructions throughout the flight. I took the controls for about 5 minutes and guided the helicopter along the expressway and over fields. At the end, I got a certificate to commemorate the occasion.

Great Experience from start to finish. Any questions that I had prior to appointment were answered via email in good time. Staff was thorough with explaination of process. Once flight took course the pilot had great communication while transferring control of aircraft. Felt safe and educated entire time. Definitely recommend the extended flight option, worth the extra fee. Highly recommend trying this out. There's not many expieriences like this. Will definitely be going back.

Wonderful flight experience with my instructor Bronson!!! I'd definitely spend the extra $130, which gets you 20 extra minutes of flight time so that you can fly up to Manhattan. The high performance option was less interesting. Bring food and something to keep you entertained as it may be a long wait.

It's a very good experience. The instructors are very helpful n everyone should go at least once to take a flying lesson.

The staff was friendly, and the ambience and ride was great But like they mentioned, I was assuming 15 minutes of flight time, whereas the actual time above ground was 6-7 minutes to be preciserest 5-7 minutes we did nothing but the rotors to turn off while being on ground When I asked him about the quick flight time, he mentioned it starts when you get in the R22 until you get out, which explains why we just rested in the helicopter for 5 mins after we landed Don't really think that ride /lesson was worth 125$ Utterly Disappointed with the flight time!

From Our Editors

Core Helicopters launches students skyward during hands-on helicopter lessons with certified, experienced staff on high-performance R22 helicopters with heated or open cockpits at Linden Airport, only 14 miles from New York City. Fledgling flyers begin their sojourns on the ground, with 30 minutes of in-depth training in flight controls and safety. Next, the pilot and pupil air-kiss the tarmac adieu before they climb into the cockpit, where strapped-in students get hands-on chopper experience for 15 airborne minutes. Soaring past the atmosphere's cloud-shaped sheep, pupils take over the flight controls themselves, or sit back as the instructor pilot takes the helm. Each trainee leaves the lesson holding an FAA-authorized, bird-notarized certificate for proof of their flight training. The flight time also counts toward a future pilot's license, should the student choose to pursue it.

Additional options including extended flight times, flight instructors demonstrating high-performing, advanced maneuvers, and flight-of-two flights where two helicopters will fly side-by-side together, which allow air-to-air photos with friends, are available for an additional fee.
