Q:

How long are you totally in the air in the helicopter?

Gaylen K.  asked on  Aug 21, 2012

A:

Hi Gaylen - Thanks for your question! Your flight is between 6-8 minutes, but I will tell you it's seems a lot longer than that! Check out the video on our home page, www.kccopters.com and you'll see our U-Fly pilot is pretty sweaty before it's all over! Hope you'll give it a try! Johnny R.

Q:

What is the 225 and 275 lbs weight limit stipulations? I mean I could loose 3 lbs and be under the 225 but just wondered what it means exactly. Thanks

Jeffrey L.  asked on  Aug 21, 2012

A:

Hey Jeffrey - Thanks for your question. The weight limit is specific to the two helicopters we fly. The R22 is a two passenger trainer, and does not have the weight carrying capability of our four passernger R44. Hence, the 225lb weight limitation for the single passenger flight in the R22. In contrast, the bigger R44 can carry more weight, and that's why the maximum weight is 50lbs higher at 275 (max 600 combined passenger total). So, you can hit the road and lose 3 pounds for the $98 single flight in the R22, or you can find a couple of skinny friends to come along for the $198 flight in the R44 and those 3 pounds won't matter! Hope to be seeing U-Fly! Johnny R.

Q:

Is there an age requirement?

Tonia L.  asked on  Aug 21, 2012

A:

Hi Tonia - Anyone under 18 must have a parent or guardian sign our waiver on their behalf, and hence we leave it to those responsible to determine if the child is capable of enduring the flight, especially for those under 12. In our experience different kids have different levels of handling a helicopter ride, so it's a very individual thing. It is very important to us that any child who flies does not have a bad experience. That is why we encourage parents to be on the conservative side and not sign up their child for a flight if there is any question at all about how they will react. And perhaps the best way to determine that is through the "fun" test... if you're not absolutely positive that they would have more fun than they would be afraid, then it's probably not a good idea. Thanks for your great question! Johnny R.

Q:

For 1 person, how long is entire lesson including the 15 minutes at the controls?

Shelley N.  asked on  Aug 21, 2012

A:

Hi Shelley - Thanks for your question. If you read the deal carefully, you will see that your time at the controls is actually between 6-8 minutes, and I can assure you at the end of the flight you will think that was plenty! You do, though, have about a 30 minute indoctrination, including a 15 ground school session as required by the FAA. It's all a ton of fun and we hope to see U-Fly! Johnny R.

Q:

Whats the deal with the weight limit?

Jeffrey L.  asked on  Aug 21, 2012

A:

Hi Jeffrey - I have given a detailed explanation in a previous answer that you might want to check out. Basically, the two helicopters we fly each have a specific load carrying capacity, and the weight limits are merely a reflection of that. From a safety stanpoint, it is imperative, and required by the FAA, that we don't exceed those limits. Thanks for your question! Johnny R.

Q:

i would love to find out more about your business and other opportunities.. like tours perhaps. But your website appears to be completely Flash based.. and I own an iPad and iPhone. Therefore, I can not view your website. Do you have a link for information that is NOT set into Flash?

Jane J.  asked on  Aug 24, 2012

A:

Hi Jane - Yes, unfortunately for you Apple folks we do in fact have a flash-based website. We are, though, in the process of coverting to HTML5, but with as complicated as the site is we still have a ways to go. I guess my only answer is to befriend someone with a PC and take a look! Or feel free to give us a call at 913-440-9499 and talk to our Tour guru Courtney. She can fill you in on all the info and answer any questions you may have. Thanks for the question! Johnny R.

Q:

Is there an age requirement?

Cheryl S.  asked on  Aug 21, 2012

A:

Hi Cheryl - You might want to check out an answer I gave to this eariler... it details the criteria we use in determining whether or not a certain age is appropriate. Basically, we have no specific age requirement and leave it up to the discretion of the parent or guardian who signs our waiver to make that decision. We do, though, reserve the right to make the final decision of whether or not a child appears able to handle the flight. It's all about safety, of course, and ensuring no one has a bad experience. Thanks for your question! Johnny R.
