KC Copters - Johnson County Executive Airport: Helicopter Lesson and Video With or Without Two Extra Passengers from KC Copters (Half Off)

The human obsession with flight stems from a refusal to accept limitations and an intense desire to find out which of your neighbors secretly have pools. Put your eyes in the skies with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $99 for a UFly helicopter lesson with video (a $199 value)
  • $198 for a UFly helicopter lesson with video and two extra passengers (a $398 value)

After a 15-minute ground-school session, participants spend six to eight minutes at the controls of an airborne Robinson R22 helicopter under the guidance of a skilled pilot. The entire helicopter-flying experience will be videotaped from inside the cockpit, producing a private video that can be watched online or downloaded onto your computer. Though the second option takes place in a four-passenger R44, only the main participant will be at the controls throughout the flight. View a sample experience on KC Copters' website.

KC Copters

With more than 20,000 hours of incident-free flying under his belt, he opened KC Copters with a “flying smart” mentality that emphasizes risk management and enhanced safety protocol. Using Johnny’s safety-oriented methodology, professional pilots lead tours, lessons, and discovery flights in Robinson R22 and R44 helicopters. When they’re not cutting through the air over Kansas City, KC Copters’ helicopters and saddled griffins return to a climate-controlled hangar at Johnson County Executive Airport equipped with white epoxy floors and a passengers’ lounge.

The KC Copter experience was excellent. We really enjoyed the hassle free prepayment and event reminder that included the meeting location. Was a simple process and staff was very professional and fun.
