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.

Rotor F/X LLC

Living up to their slogan "Excellence in Aviation," Rotor F/X runs the gamut of flight-related services by selling and repairing rotorcraft, in addition to offering flight training, transportation, and quick aerial tours of the Los Angeles area. As a prop company, Rotor F/X has a reputation of building believable cockpit mockups, aviation sets, and scale models of planes and helicopters. 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.

Customer Reviews

The pilot was great. Very knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable jumping in an airplane with him.
Patricia H. · January 22, 2017
Great customer service upon booking and the team were very responsive and helped answer my many questions. On arrival the hanger was easy to find and we were welcomed immediately. We did have to wait over 30 minutes for the pilot to arrive but it was well worth the wait! The experience was a present for my boyfriend's birthday and he said he was surprised at how much he got to handle the airplane and loved every minute of it. I was very comfortable in the back and got to enjoy the views and take pictures. Later that afternoon we sent the recording of the flight, a great keepsake. Overall a great experience and highly recommended for both avid flyers or someone looking to try something new!
