Flying is a lot like having a staring contest—even with utter concentration, you’ll never be better at it than birds. Go toe-to-beak with our winged companions with this Groupon.
$139 for a 30-Minute Private Helicopter Flight Experience (a $250 Value)
After a one-on-one Q&A with an experienced pilot, students learn basic helicopter components, controls, maneuvers, and safety in a preflight briefing before embarking on a flight experience. In the comfy leather seats of their steel pegasus's cockpit, fledgling pilots take the controls under sage instruction given by their tutor through Bose noise-canceling headsets. Once airborne, students turn, descend, climb, barrel-roll through flaming hoops, and hover above the picturesque Westchester County. At the student's request, the instructor can perform more advanced maneuvers.
Wings Air Helicopters
Wings Air Helicopters' band of experienced pilots advocate the beauty of airborne travel through charter services, flight lessons, and an aerial film-production studio. Luxury jets, decked out with sectional couches, meeting tables, and bars, grant passengers and their mobile studio audiences safe travels with charter and cargo services. Within helicopter cockpits, Bose noise-canceling headsets block out the hum of spinning propellers to ensure clear communication during charters and tours. Wings Air Films offers a wide range of aerial production services, supplying movie helicopters and camera platforms to capture bird's-eye shots of famous landmarks or Waldo sightings for motion-picture and television industries.
