Much like the hummingbird, helicopters can hover in midair and are fueled by gasoline from only the sweetest of flowers. Alight in the halcyon air with today’s Groupon: for $169, you get a 20-minute helicopter tour from Intrepid Helicopters in Ottawa Lake, Michigan (a $395 value). Flights take off from the Toledo Suburban Airport grounds.
With well-trained chopper masters who share their expertise as professional instructors, Intrepid takes adventurers to the skies for aerial views of the Great Lakes region. Owner Spencer Norris and other Intrepid rotarizers lead tours over changing leaves, snow-blanketed landscapes, or summer greenery alive with cavorting birds and capering willow trees. The company’s four-seat Robinson R44 Raven II flying machine keeps trekkers cool with air conditioning and stomachs settled with responsive handling suited to high-altitude flights and midair pterodactyl chases. Intrepid’s birdmen fold their wings at a t-hangar on the Toledo Suburban Airport ground, convenient for visitors from both north and south of Toledo.
