Great Groupon. The Helicopter instructor went over the basics of the helicopter, what we'd be doing, and all safety precautions. The lesson was booked for 50 minutes, but went almost 90 with all the Q+A and the flight time. A rare experience that was pretty affordable. And the instructor was very outgoing and patient. Would recommend to anyone who likes to fly!

Wear closed toe shoes and do not take any recording devices inside the helicopter. They are setting up a go pro inside soon for people to purchase video. They will take pictures of you standing outside the helicopter with your camera or phone

My trip to the New England Helicopter Academy was a great experience! I had a great experience flying with Rick, who explained everything thoroughly ahead of time. NEHA is very professional and Rick is an extremely competant and confident pilot. I would recommend them to anyone!

The guy that runs the business is not the best at scheduling. We had to wait over an hour for our appointment. Other people were not willing to wait. He did give a good helicopter lesson.

Rick made me feel so at ease when we were up there flying. My friends and I had a great time and shared our experience the whole day.

From Our Editors

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.
