Choose Between Two Options

  • $119 for a beginner helicopter flight lesson for one (a $250 value)
  • $239 for a beginner helicopter flight lesson for two (a $520 value)

Each beginner flight lesson commences with 30 minutes of ground school, during which the student receives a safety briefing and overview of helicopter operations. The pupil then clambers aboard a dual-controlled helicopter with a certified flight instructor, who starts the propeller and lifts the aircraft off the ground. Once airborne, the student will be able to take the controls while the instructor monitors during the 15-minute flight.

Sky River Helicopters

From Sky River Helicopters’ locations at Sky Manor Airport and Cross Keys Airport, a fleet of Robinson helicopters thrums skyward while carrying flight-school pupils and sightseers. The team of flight-school instructors helps students to earn licenses as private or commercial pilots by showing them the ropes in the cockpits of R-22 or R-44 helicopters. During sightseeing tours, the Pocono Mountains, the New Jersey coastline, and the New York skyline sprawl out 1,500 feet below. Through the cockpit’s glassy bubble, the trees form impressionistic blurs, skyscrapers look like tiny spindles, and Godzilla’s underbite doesn’t seem that serious.

Customer Reviews

This was such an amazing experience!!! I cannot say enough great things about our instructor, Kevin! He made us feel comfortable and safe. Explained things in layman's terms for me but was able to go into more detail with my boyfriend so he did not get bored and also get a lot of out of it. We had the time of our life and will recommend it to all of our friends!
