Flying is a lot like having a staring contest: even with utter concentration, you’ll never be better at it than birds. Go toe-to-beak with our winged companions with today’s Groupon: for $138, you get a romantic helicopter flight for two from Timberview Helicopters (a $274.99 value). Flights depart from Northwest Richards Road in Kansas City or Johnson County Executive Airport in Olathe, and include the following:
- A 15-minute helicopter flight over Kansas City for two
- Sparkling wine and a box of Russell Stover chocolates to share during the flight
The professional pilots at Timberview Helicopters ferry passengers above the Kansas City skyline in a late-model Robinson helicopter, spending 15 minutes chauffeuring each couple. Excursions allow guests to see such notable sites as Liberty Memorial, Sprint Center, and Union Station from a perspective normally reserved for birds and keen-eyed astronauts. During the flight, the passengers can trade bites from a box of Russell Stover chocolates and raise a toast to their favorite cloud with a glass of sparkling wine. Timberview Helicopters will schedule flights seven days a week, including Valentine’s Day.
The professional pilots at Timberview Helicopters ferry passengers high into the clouds aboard a sky-scraping whirlybird during flight tours through Destin and Kansas City. Having chartered flights for National Geographic and the Travel Channel, these pilots expertly navigate planes toward sweeping, picturesque views, allowing sightseers to steal glances of Fort Walton Beach, downtown Kansas City, and Key West's ocean views from a perspective normally reserved for birds and astronauts with binoculars. Additionally, their high-definition videos grant guests a lasting commemoration of their in-flight experience. When they're not chartering tours, they teach budding pilots the gravity-defying tricks of their trade through pilot training and lug precious shipments from port to port with their cargo-lifting services
