Unlike airplanes, helicopters lack wings, which makes them even more confusing to passing birds and frustrating to bitter, grounded chickens. Make farm foul envious with this Groupon.
$149 for a 30-Minute Helicopter Lesson and Ride ($295 Value)
Students take the controls of a Hughes 269C helicopter under the guidance of an FAA-certified pilot during a 30-minute flight that soars up to 500 feet in the air. After logging the time toward a future helicopter rating or certification, novice pilots can fling questions at their instructor to round out the excursion. Since the company owns two helicopters, two friends can fly in formation or film a Puff Daddy music video on the cheap.
Bachman Aero's FAA-certified pilots take to the sky inside choppers for flight services such as aerial photography, sightseeing, or lessons in helicopter certification. They provide beginning pilots a chance to log hours in their helicopters, helping students prepare for commercial pilot flight exams or their oral exam on pig Latin pilot jargon. The in-house instructors also groom accomplished pilots for a career in teaching with instructor lessons.
