There are few things as liberating as being able to fly, which is why humans invented helicopters and why penguins constantly try to sabotage them by eating their propellers. Feel the freedom of the skies with this Groupon.
$195 for a Two-Hour Helicopter Flight Lesson for One ($399 Value)
To launch their flight experience, students orient themselves to the mechanics and controls of the helicopter during ground school and simulator training. They then take to the skies with an FAA-certified instructor, flying over the Los Angeles area and peeping views of sites such as the Santa Monica mountains and Lake Balboa. An HD video commemorates the flight as does a photo package and a certificate of completion. Students leave with flight-training manuals and a pilot logbook, in which lies evidence of their first recorded flight and first sky-borne drag-race victory against a flock of seagulls.

As a testament to their ability to enhance stunts, effects, and camera shots with their replicas, the crew of the History Channel's Modern Marvels asked them to construct a experimental helicopter that not only lifts up into the air, but travels back in time to prevent the original Star Trek from being canceled.

“This was a great experience! For $80 you can pay to be a passenger during the airplane lesson. We spent about 30-40 minutes learning about the plane we'd be flying, and about 30 minutes in the plane, taxying to the runway and in-flight. Our flight instructor was Yekta, who was really kind and professional, making it an overall great experience.”
“I bought this for my sister in law for Christmas and she loved it! She said the instructor was amazing and she will definitely be doing more lessons”
“Awesome experience, my 8yr old son loved it.”
