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.
