What You'll Get
Unlike airplanes, helicopters are agile and easily maneuvered, making them ideal for short flights, overhead sightseeing, and hovering above the head of a toupee-wearing enemy. Hover above a friendly city with today's Groupon: for $325, you'll receive a 15-minute safety overview and 45-minute private helicopter tour of Boston from North Andover Flight Academy (a $500 value).
North Andover Flight Academy’s team of experienced pilots elevates customers to a new stratosphere with city-skimming aerial tours. Before cutting across the skyline in a Robinson R44, helicopter, tours begin at Lawrence Airport with a 15-minute safety briefing.
During the Boston tour, customers will have the rare opportunity to look from above at major urban attractions such as the Boston Commons, Faneuil Hall, the Charles River, and the never-before-seen tops of the Boston Celtics players' heads. Up to three visitors are welcome on each tour, but circus strongmen and socialized gorillas will need to stay home, as the guest weight limit is 275 pounds per person with a maximum of 500 pounds total on the chopper. Please call ahead to discuss and schedule your tour.

About Boston Helicopters
An FAA-approved helicopter-flight tour operator, Boston Helicopters employs five licensed instructors with combined flight and teaching experience that numbers in the thousands of hours. Fledgling aviators can begin their aeronautical journeys at Lawrence and Marlboro Airports, which serve as home bases for services that range from tours and photography flights to full pilot-certification courses and agricultural applications. The team commands a fleet of six Robinson helicopters, including one R44 and five R22s, and keeps Robinson factory-trained mechanics on staff to ensure their safe operation and to ice down their blades after particularly vigorous training flights.
