What You'll Get

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 or 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.
