Early man made many attempts at flying, such as sewing feathers onto his arms and scaling mountain peaks in order to cling to the underbellies of passing comets. Learn to fly the new-fashioned way with today's deal: for $89, you get an introductory helicopter flight lesson with Charleston Helicopters, which takes off from Odyssey Terminal at Charleston International Airport.

The introductory helicopter flight lesson puts flight enthusiasts in the pilot's seat to realize airborne dreams and observe resplendent views of the city. Experts of the upper stratosphere for more than 20 years, the friendly aeronauts at Charleston Helicopters will first conduct a 30-minute earthbound safety demonstration, which includes a pre-flight check of the craft, an aerodynamics lesson, and a short history on how helicopters conquered the dinosaurs. Soon after, you and your FAA-certified instructor will hop into the Robinson R22 Beta II, where you can take the reins to learn a variety of takeoffs and landings before hovering majestically over the countryside at your discretion, catching remarkable views and envious glances from physics-bound beings below. After the cloud-cutting tour, feel free to notch the 30-minute, hands-on experience as the opening lesson toward a private pilot's certificate. Call to make your reservation.

Charleston Helicopters has a maximum weight limit of 220 pounds per person. Riders must not have any potentially hazardous medical conditions including diabetes, epilepsy, heart problems, and poor vision.

Charleston Helicopters

With their fleet of Robinson R22 utility helicopters, the aviators at Charleston Helicopters take joy in breaking the laws of gravity. They whisk passengers high above Charleston for flight lessons and photo tours, and while passing over the harbor, guests can snap shots of the Battery, Shem Creek, and various forts. Viewers may also zoom over the Charleston skyline to admire buildings soaked in red-and-orange sunsets and the flickering lights of surrounding towns. Many of Charleston Helicopters's tours invite guests to toast airborne triumphs upon landing with champagne, instilling an extra sense of victory without having to drag race passing geese.

What a great way to see Charleston!

This was a surprise from my girlfriend and it was amazing!! We visited Charleston for the weekend and she surprised me with this Saturday morning. They worked with her to schedule a convenient time considering we were there for the Charleston Wine & Food Festival and had a tight schedule. While in the air, we had a great view of the city, the Ravenel Bridge and a pod of dolphins. So in addition to the awesome flight lesson, it was a beautiful tour at the same time. My instructor's professionalism and knowledge immediately made me feel at ease. It was the most fun I had all weekend.
