What You'll Get
While a great way to make a flashy entrance or theatrical exit, helicopters won't replace cars as the primary means of human transportation until teenagers develop the focus to successfully parallel land. Enjoy highly trained piloting with today's Groupon: for $150, you and a companion get to take one of three helicopter tours (a $300 value) with Prestige Helicopters, Inc. The tour choice are, the Buckhead and Downtown tour, the Stone Mountain and Decatur tour, or the Chattahoochee River to Dean Gardens tour. Each ride is approximately 30–35 minutes long. The purchase also includes a voucher good for an appetizer with purchase of entree at the 57th Fight Group restaurant.
With 25 years of flying-machine experience, the expert sky guides of Prestige Helicopters lead astounded patrons on soaring journeys through Atlanta's airspace. Tours depart from PDK Airport, providing an eagle's ocular angle of the Governor's mansion and other ornate residences. The Buckhead and Dowtown tour floats toward the metropolitan center past Georgia Aquarium and the Georgia Tech campus before revealing elevated glimpses of Centennial Olympic Park's fountains, the pastoral diamond in Turner Field, and the implied emerald turf beneath the Georgia Dome. Choppers touring Stone Mountain and Decatur hover over the great mound of matter with added views of East Lake golf course (by request). The Chattahoochee River tour gives in to the Dean Gardens' gravitational pull, passing progressively larger houses until it reaches Dean's 32,000-square-foot mansion, which resides on 60 acres of land fertilized with composted dollar bills.

About Prestige Helicopters, Inc.
The FAA-certified pilots at Prestige Helicopters, Inc. fly their passengers over downtown Atlanta, the King and Queen towers, and Turner Field. They helm a fleet of three Robinson R44 helicopters, as well as R22 whirlybirds, each spacious enough for up to three guests. Along the way, skybound guests peep at the area's arterial highways, majestic mountains, and winding Chattahoochee River, intermittently soaring high enough to fly over skyscrapers while avoiding most feral clouds.
Pilots also instill basics of takeoff, steering, and landing during flight-training programs that start students off on the cloud-kicking path to obtaining private, commercial, and flight-instructor licenses. When not leading tours and training programs, the skywaymen shuttle passengers between airports and hotels and take aerial photographers up for photo shoots.
