Pilots are the cowboys of the air, roaming the wide-open skies and herding children's runaway balloons. Giddy up, up, and away with today's Groupon: for $225, you get a helicopter tour of the Philadelphia skyline for up to three people from Independence Helicopters (up to a $450 value). Tours depart from Philadelphia Northeast Airport and last approximately 30 minutes. Today’s deal does not include gratuity, but Groupon buyers will be exempt from additional fees such as sales tax and the $5 fuel surcharge.
Independence Helicopters’ knowledgeable, certified pilots whisk patrons up into the friendly skies, pointing out historic landmarks and scenic sights along Philadelphia's skyline. Visitors can pile into an illustrious bubble-windowed whirlybird and soar above the Delaware River, taking in spectacular views of skyscrapers, Boathouse Row, and the Philadelphia Zoo with its behind-the-scenes puppeteers. With room enough for up to three passengers, sightseers can ooh and ahh at notable landmarks such as the Battleship New Jersey and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Safety is Independence Helicopters’ top priority, and crewmembers regularly clean and inspect the fleet to keep it well above FAA standards.
