Q:

Is it possible that you take pictures or record videos of us flying the helicoptor?

William W.  asked on  Feb 8, 2013

A:

Sorry for the delay! The helicopter used for the lesson only holds two people (student and pilot), so they would not be able to bring someone along to film or photograph the experience. You're welcome to bring your own camera if you'd like to capture some photos or video during your lesson.

Q:

If there is no age limit, does it mean kids can try too!

Ravi  asked on  Feb 6, 2013

A:

Yes, as long as they are tall enough to be able to bend their knees while sitting upright in a normal chair.

Q:

What is the age limit

Ravi  asked on  Feb 6, 2013

A:

There is no age requirement but there is a size requirement. The person needs to be able to bend their knees while sitting upright in a normal chair. This will ensure they are tall enough to be properly secured in the helicopter.
