Choose Between Two Options
- $67 for a flight-simulator experience ($150 value)
- $295 for a 30-minute helicopter tour for up to three ($497 value)
During the flight-simulator experience, the FLYIT professional helicopter simulator ensconces budding pilots in a true-to-life cockpit, complete with a 93”x78” window that flashes images of the runway, greenery, and even the Las Vegas strip. A full panel of buttons, hard-mounted controls, and a hummingbird stationed right next to your ear further replicate the sound and feel of helicopter aviation without having to leave the ground. Before giving students the virtual helm, an instructor teaches them the basics of helicopter flight.
The 30-minute tour takes guests over Boston in a Robinson R44 helicopter, granting them aerial views of Harvard, Fenway Park, and the Charles River.
Blue Hill Helicopters
Located just outside Boston, Blue Hill lets aspiring pilots navigate both the busy airspace above the city and the more difficult flying conditions around the White Mountains. A full-scale flight simulator preps beginners before they can receive one-on-one lessons from an instructor in a two-seat Schweizer 300C helicopter, which accommodates both commercial or private flying tracks. The copter also ferries passengers above the city at dusk or carries riders home to the nest where flying machines roost at night.
