Many dream of flying, but only helicopter pilots and beagles with strong-beaked bird friends have figured out how to do it without the chafing of helium-filled pants. Experience comfortable air travel with today's Groupon: for $159, you and up to two other passengers get a 15- to 20-minute helicopter tour from EasyRotor Helicopter Aviation Systems, located in the Grand Rapids Air Center in Ford International Airport. Recently tapped for the filming of aerial footage for Kid Rock's "Born Free" music video, EasyRotor employs a squad of experienced sky tamers ready to increase your altitude in a Robinson R44 Raven. Once snuggled securely in your seat, you can treat your peepers to once-in-a-lifetime views of numerous Grand Rapids neighborhoods and sites as you peer down at the city from the same perspective enjoyed by its avian founders millennia ago. Check out EasyRotor's photo gallery for a glimpse at your gravity-defying destiny.

Each ride can accommodate up to three people, but individual passengers cannot exceed 300 pounds and combined passenger weight cannot exceed 600 pounds.

EasyRotor Helicopter

[[m:####EasyRotor Helicopter

Founded in 2005 by passionate aviator Eric Swanson, the high-flying adventures of EasyRotor Helicopter have enjoyed publicity from Rapid Growth Media as well as from fellow Michigander and recording artist Kid Rock, who hired the company to shoot aerial footage for a music video. EasyRotor's world-class R44 Raven chopper, manufactured by Robinson Helicopter Company, conveniently facilitates the company's tours and aerial services based out of Gerald R. Ford International Airport. As the helicopter slices through the air, views of Grand Rapids, its downtown, and passengers' own homes come into view. Noise-canceling headphones allow for both free-flowing conversation and unobstructed listening to the pilot's anecdotes on the sights below and the exploits of Leo da Vinci, the patron saint of helicopters.:m]]
