The human obsession with flight stems from a refusal to accept limitations and an intense desire to finally move out of gravity's basement. Claim your own airspace with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a hands-on one-on-one helicopter lesson from Heli Flights at the Lincoln Park Airport in Lincoln Park, New Jersey, about half an hour from Manhattan (a $200 value).

Heli Flights launches students skyward during hands-on helicopter lessons with certified, experienced staff on high-performance R22 helicopters with heated cockpits and 180-degree panoramic views, capable of reaching more than 110 mph and altitudes of 14,000 feet. Fledgling flyers begin their sojourns on the ground, with 20–30 minutes of training in flight control and safety. Next, the pilot and pupil air-kiss the tarmac adieu before they climb into the two-person cockpit, where strapped-in students get hands-on chopper experience for 15 airborne minutes. Soaring past the atmosphere's cloud-shaped sheep, rotor rookies take over the flight controls themselves, or sit back and feed packets of peanuts to the engine as the instructor pilot takes the heli helm. Each trainee leaves the 45–60-minute lesson holding an FAA-authorized, bird-notarized certificate for proof of their flight training. Extended flight times and formation flights, which allow air-to-air photos with friends, are available for an additional fee.


The product of a childhood dream, HeliFlights first took to the skies in 2010. Equipped with a fleet of high-quality birds, the company makes its home in Linden, NJ. Here photographers, videographers, and the general public are provided with a unique view of New York City from NYC Photo Flights, a subsidiary of Heli Flights. Photo flight packages can suit each individual's needs, from basic introductory flights that venture out into the harbor all the way to customized flights to help capture the picture and video memories of a lifetime.
