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 today's Groupon: for $999, you get a 30-minute private helicopter charter over New York City for up to four people from Wings Air (a $1,850 value). A $25 heliport fee is required for each passenger and is not included in this Groupon.
Wings Air sets sightseers aloft in a modern helicopter to tour the New York City skyline under the friendly guidance of a highly trained pilot. For 30 minutes, up to four friends snuggle into the comfy leather seats of their steel pegasus and begin their ascent, buzzing through the sky and peering at the microscopic bustle of the Big Apple. Atmosphere-bound trips reveal previously undiscovered aspects of aerial Manhattan, such as a secret sixth borough and the gray roots in Lady Liberty’s luscious green mane. Wraparound glass windows widen eyes with panoramic views, and ears snuggle into noise-reduction Bose headsets complete with voice-activated microphones that allow passengers to compare notes on famous landmarks or Waldo sightings.
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.
