The human obsession with flight stems from a refusal to accept limitations and an intense desire to finally move out of gravity's basement. Claim your own airspace with today's Groupon: for $74, you get an introductory helicopter flying lesson at Boca Raton Helicopters, located at the Boca Raton Airport (a $236.43 value).
The experienced pilots at Boca Raton Helicopters maintain their fleet of clean, training-friendly whirlybirds to strict FAA safety standards. Each one-on-one introductory helicopter flight-training lesson begins with a one-hour land lesson, as aspiring aeronauts ages 14 and older soak up the basics of chopper flight and safety from the comfort of solid, quicksand-less ground. Once fully prepped in the ins and outs of the cockpit, students who have read the accompanying manual may take the rotary-wing in a fifteen-minute trip through Florida's lauded cloud-top theme parks. Students who have not finished their required reading will also be ushered into the flying pod for a fun aerial ride-along.
Boca Raton Helicopters is experiencing equipment problems with their instruction helicopter. Groupon purchasers will still receive the one-hour land lesson and a ride-along, but may not be able to fly the helicopter.
Southern Helicopters' stealthy cloud cutters whisk patrons around the atmospheric edges of Florida's scenic coastline. Each of the eight tours begins with an introductory spin around the sky, circling the new FAU stadium and the Boca shoreline. Other sight-seeing spots include Palm Beach's opulent real estate, Manalapan Island, and the Everglades to search for alligators playing frisbee golf. The savvy pilots also have experience working with aerial photographers and aspire to help patrons capture stunning footage or photos with a special harness that allows them to film or shoot with the chopper door open, as long as they promise to not let any flying monkeys in.
