Helicopters are so beloved that they've earned countless nicknames, such as "choppers," "harleys" (short for harley-copters), and "motor-cycles," for the many cycling motors they contain. Be an easy glider with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $199 for a one-hour piston helicopter flying lesson for one ($398 value)
  • $329 for a one-hour turbine helicopter flying lesson with three passengers ($658 value)

A certified flight instructor teaches students how to maneuver a Robinson R22 piston or R66 turbine helicopter during one-hour flying lessons. The instructor goes over takeoff, coastal flight, and landing processes, and the flight can be logged toward actual flight time for those who wish to get their full pilot's license. The lesson includes 20–30 minutes of ground training and 25–30 minutes of flying time, and three friends can fly with the student pilot in the turbine helicopter.

Heli Aviation Florida, LLC

At Heli Aviation Florida, LLC, the Robinson R22, R44, and R66 helicopters that make up the fleet serve a number of roles. They not only lift casual passengers into the sky for sightseeing tours, photography sessions, and search parties for lost Mylar balloons, but also give traffic-patrol pilots a bird's-eye view of the morning commute. Plus, they're used during flying lessons.

Aerial fun and excitement aboard the helicopters are second only to one thing at Heli Aviation Florida—safety. The Helicopter Association International member relies on the Target Zero Safety Management System, whose goal is nothing short of perfection, or zero accidents while providing helicopter services.

After full safety briefings each day, the pilots take off from their 10,000-square-foot area at Sarasota Bradenton International Airport, which features a lobby, classrooms, a training area, and hanger space.
