What You'll Get
Helicopters are superior to planes in almost every way: vertical takeoff and landing, ability to maneuver in any direction, and more likely to deposit Green Day outside your high school because they heard there was "a pretty cool prom goin' down." Let your dreams soar with this Groupon.
$174 for 90-Minute Helicopter Discovery Flight Experience ($349 Value)
The Discovery Flight begins with in-depth preflight instruction on the ground from an FAA-certified instructor followed by a 30-minute flight aboard a Robinson R22 Beta II helicopter with the participant at the controls. Following a path outlined by the LA Live Tour, instructor and participant will soar past such landmarks as the downtown skyline, the Stables Center, Kodak Theater, Dodger Stadium, and the Hollywood sign. Once safely back on land, the participant will receive a certificate of flight completion, a commemorative photo, and an promotional DVD.
