Under the wing of Holmes Helicopters’ FAA-certified flight instructors, budding aviators soar into the sky in the cockpit of the Hiller 12-D helicopters. Flight companions strap into the three-seat contraption and gawk as earth, trees, and envious penguins shrink beneath their feet. The 12-D ensconces pilots and passengers in a clear, bubble-like cockpit, affording nearly 360-degree views of the vineyard-corrugated countryside broached by national forests to the north and south.

The chopper’s dual controls abet those who wish to command their own journeys. Pilots initiate students into the world of aviation, covering the principles of safe flight and hand signals for passing geese. Though the 30-minute adventure spent darting through cloudbanks won’t result in certification, the time is applicable toward pilot hours. For an extra fee, Groupon purchasers may add an observer to their flying lesson, allowing them to ride along during the flight ($40).

We had wanted to take a helicopter ride for several years. This was a marvelous opportunity and we loved our experience. The overview of our beautiful valley was breathtaking. The pilot was personable. A great experience!
