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 $129, you get a 50-minute helicopter flight lesson from North Andover Flight Academy (a $215 value). This lesson includes the following:

  • 30 minutes of ground training
  • 20-minute flight
  • T-shirt
  • Logbook
  • High-definition video of the flight</p>

North Andover Flight Academy, an FAA-approved helicopter school, houses a team of experienced pilots that instruct students in the art of cruising the stratosphere with 50-minute helicopter flight lessons. Sessions begin at Lawrence Airport or Marlboro Airport with 30 minutes of ground training that preps students on safety, controls, and how to discern harmless clouds from dangerous ghost street gangs. Patrons then take the helm of a Robinson R22 helicopter, whose easy maneuverability makes it ideal for training aspiring sky caperers, guiding vessels for a 20-minute jaunt. Pilots departing from Lawrence will enjoy views of the Merrimack River and Lawrence, while those leaving Marlboro will fly over the city of Marlboro. Patrons hit the ground running with a logbook, company T-shirt, and high-definition video to commemorate their skyscapades.

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.

Customer Reviews

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend and he totally loved it! Wouldn't stop talking about it for days. Instructor was so kind and attentive, we both felt safe about it even though we'd never done anything like this before. The video was a bonus! Definitely an unforgettable experience - highly recommend!
