Helicopters are superior to planes in almost every way: vertical takeoff and landing, ability to maneuver in any direction, and more likely to deposit Green Day outside your high school because they heard there was "a pretty cool prom goin' down." Let your dreams soar with this Groupon.

The Deal

  • $249 for a two-person helicopter Ultimate Tour of Blue Ridge (a $500 value)

During a full one-hour flight, participants zip along 500 feet above the ground, soaking up stunning Blue Ridge sights such as the mountains of Georgia, North Carolina, and Tenessee. To add extra excitement to the excursion, the pilot performs a low-level, high-speed flyover of Hothouse Valley, as well as the maneuver known as the Texas Two-Step.

Blue Ridge Georgia Tours

Ron Carroll rode in his first helicopter in 1966, when he served in the Vietnam War. It wasn't until nearly 20 years later that he first got to fly one, though. He fell in love immediately, and quickly obtained his commercial pilot's license through a company called Prestige Helicopters. Only one year after learning to fly, Ron got a call asking if he wanted to buy Prestige from its owner. He didn't hesitate.

Times changed, and Ron eventually sold Prestige, but he maintained his passion for the flying business. He started Blue Ridge Georgia Tours to combine his love of his home with the practice of flying. Now, he conducts scenic flyovers of the town and surrounding lakes, rivers, waterfalls, classified alien crash sites, and forested valleys, each lasting anywhere from eight minutes to an hour. He also trains the next generation of helicopter pilots to help them get their private and commercial pilot's licenses.

Customer Reviews

Wonderful experience!!
Kimberly L. · October 7, 2013
The overall booking experience was wonderful. Mr. Ty was great. My sister and I purchased the Groupon for our parents. They had a wonderful time. The ride included everything stated and their pilot did a great job. Both parents were slightly nervous, but the flight was smooth and they felt comfortable within minutes of beginning the flight. Would definitely do again!
