In a Nutshell

FAA-certified pilots fly students up to 500 feet in the air, where novices take the controls of helicopter during 30-minute flights.

The Fine Print

Promotional value expires Oct 24, 2012. Amount paid never expires. Limit 1 per person, may buy multiple as gifts. Limit 1 per visit. 24hr cancellation notice required or fee up to Groupon price may apply. Must be 14 or older. 270lb weight max. Must sign waiver. Subject to weather conditions. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

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

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.

Worth every penny! My instructor was knowledgeable, fun, professional, & I have come to find out modest about his knowledge & experience. I learned a lot, & this gives you an idea if flying is for you.
