What You'll Get


The human obsession with flight stems from a refusal to accept limitations and an intense desire to find out which of your neighbors secretly have pools. Put your eyes in the skies with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

During introductory training sessions, budding aviators will be on the controls with a FAA-certified flight instructor on-board with them. Students spend 30 minutes in ground training and 15 minutes in flight with 180-degree panoramic views in a R22 helicopter, which reaches speeds of 110 mph and altitudes of 14,000 feet. For the two-person lesson, friends can fly side by side in their respective separate helicopters and snap photos of each other for an additional fee; extended flight times and additional options are also available.

About Core Helicopters


Core Helicopters launches students skyward during hands-on helicopter lessons with certified, experienced staff on high-performance R22 helicopters with heated or open cockpits at Linden Airport, only 14 miles from New York City. Fledgling flyers begin their sojourns on the ground, with 30 minutes of in-depth training in flight controls and safety. Next, the pilot and pupil air-kiss the tarmac adieu before they climb into the cockpit, where strapped-in students get hands-on chopper experience for 15 airborne minutes. Soaring past the atmosphere's cloud-shaped sheep, pupils take over the flight controls themselves, or sit back as the instructor pilot takes the helm. Each trainee leaves the lesson holding an FAA-authorized, bird-notarized certificate for proof of their flight training. The flight time also counts toward a future pilot's license, should the student choose to pursue it.

Additional options including extended flight times, flight instructors demonstrating high-performing, advanced maneuvers, and flight-of-two flights where two helicopters will fly side-by-side together, which allow air-to-air photos with friends, are available for an additional fee.
