Rick, the instructor is really eager to teach the basics of helicopter operation. This is not a helicopter ride; it is a lesson. You get to use the controls for the duration of the lesson - it is real flying time. I want to go back and do more!!

Great Groupon. The Helicopter instructor went over the basics of the helicopter, what we'd be doing, and all safety precautions. The lesson was booked for 50 minutes, but went almost 90 with all the Q+A and the flight time. A rare experience that was pretty affordable. And the instructor was very outgoing and patient. Would recommend to anyone who likes to fly!

About New England Helicopter Academy

From their nests at Plymouth Municipal Airport and Norwood Municipal Airport, New England Helicopter Academy’s Schweizer Model 300 helicopters lift fledgling aviators into the skies for flights ranging from introductory runs to intensive training courses. Combining the choppers’ precise handling with academy president Rick Smith’s rigorous training regimen, pilots-to-be learn to expertly handle real-life flying situations such as landing at uncontrolled airports, flying in inclement weather, and airlifting bananas to King Kong. In addition to serving as mid-air classrooms, choppers also treat students to sky-high sightseeing, with training flights often motoring over New England landmarks including the Cape Cod coastline and cities such as Boston and Providence.
