$149 for a 12-Mile Chartered-Helicopter Flight for Up to Three ($347 Value)
Strapped into a helicopter's cozy cabin, up to three sightseers and a certified pilot take off on a 15-minute, 12-mile flight on one of two trajectories: the skies over Olathe or downtown Kansas City. On the Olathe trip, the maneuverable, mechanical bird affords panoramic views of the Legends NASCAR track, the Kansas City T-Bones' ballpark, and the picturesque Overland Park area. Airborne guests who choose to head downtown soak in the sights above the city center, Sprint Center, and the Country Club Plaza. After the tour, guests receive a commemorative photo and a high-definition video that captures both their in-flight experience and the sweeping metropolitan views.
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
