The trip is 30 min lesson on the ground then 15 min in the air the instructor takes off and lands and during the time inbetween the student will take over for a few mins.- are there duel controls - or does the student really have the only controls - Is this a special class offered just for groupon or is this the reg intro class. Also if a person gets dizzy on roller coasters would the helicopter have the same feeling.

Hi Margaret! Great questions! There are dual controls in the helicopter and the instructors will be responsible for the take-off and landing. The instructors will hand over the controls of the helicopter to the student as soon as possible after take-off and though-out the flight - as the whole point of this experience is to learn and experience how to fly a helicopter rather than just be a passenger in the back-seat! We also have an option to extend your flight by 10 minutes to make it a 25 minute flight for an additional $65. Although each person is different, since each flight is customized and tailored to the individual, we've had very few if any(?) problems with people feeling dizzy or sick on the flights. This is based on over 1500 flights we've conducted. We bought a batch of air-sickness bags about a year ago and haven't had to use any so far...
