There are few freedoms as liberating as being able to fly, which is why humans spent millennia inventing the airplane and why penguins are so very, very bitter. Exceed evolutionary shortcomings with today’s Groupon for a helicopter ride from Manhattan Helicopters. Choose between the following options:
- For $149, you get a 20-minute helicopter tour for one, including heliport fee (a $220 value).
- For $295, you get a 20-minute helicopter tour for two and a 6”x8” framed photo, including heliport fee (a $460 value).<p>
Manhattan Helicopters’ team of professional pilots leads groups of sightseers on skyward adventures over majestic New York City. During the 20-minute tours, passengers soar around the cityscape, affording opportunities to snap aerial photos of the Empire State Building, Central Park, and the Statue of Liberty’s good side. Passengers may also scan miles of the lush urban jungle for equally scenic sprawl, differentiating the boroughs and waving hello to favorite public water fountains. Flying duos receive a framed 6”x8” photo to commemorate the experience.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Manhattan Helicopters a spot on Groupon’s Best of 2011 list.
Manhattan Helicopters' flight crew zips passengers past the Big Apple's most iconic attractions while narrating trips in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese, or Chinese. Each one of their pilots must log thousands of training hours before steering whirlybirds past landmarks such as the 9/11 Memorial, Times Square, and Madison Square Garden. Voice-activated Bose headsets provide crystal-clear communications between pilots and riders, and large windows deliver unobstructed views of Governors Island and the distant Palisades. Plush leather seats equipped with cup holders equally absorb chair-gripping excitement and reveries more peaceful than a nap in a stork's bindle.
