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. Take to the sky the new-fashioned way with today’s Groupon to Charleston Helicopters, which takes off from Odyssey Aviation terminal at Charleston International Airport. Choose from the following options:

  • For $99, you get an aerial tour for one (a $198 value).
  • For $179, you get an aerial tour for two (a $398 value).
  • For $199, you get a aerial tour for two with champagne (a $448 total value)<p>

With more than 20 years of chopper-steering experience, the aviators at Charleston Helicopters fly individuals, pairs, and parties of three on scenic and romantic tours of Charleston. Helicopters lift up to three passengers on 20-minute tours, including a daytime Downtown and Harbor tour that affords bird’s-eye views of the Battery, Morris Island Lighthouse, Shem Creek, and various forts as viewers zoom over the Charleston skyline and the boat-bobbing shoreline. As the sun begins to recede, Romantic Sunset tours take off, hovering over buildings and soaking in the red-and-orange skies. The third option adds champagne to this dusk-time venture, instilling an extra sense of romance to go along with one’s “How’s about we get married?” T-shirt. After the sun sinks below the horizon, helicopters soar through the City Lights tour, where passengers take in the flickering lights of Charleston and its surrounding towns.

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.

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.
