Before helicopters, the only way to catch a lofty glimpse of town was via catapult, which often left people stranded atop leafy redwoods and surly giraffes. Ensure yourself an aerial exit strategy with today’s Groupon: for $149, you get a 55-minute helicopter lesson from Timberview Helicopters (a $299 value), whose flights take off from locations on Northwest Richards Road and at Johnson County Executive Airport. Students will learn about basic flying skills and equipment in 30 minutes of ground instruction before taking to the skies with 25 minutes of flying in a late model Robinson R44, including time on the controls. Timberview's team of skilled sky-scalers includes pilots who have more than 4,000 hours of flying experience and years of safety training. Soar through the skies in the self-guided cloud cruise, allowing your eyes to admire Kansas City's landscape of towering buildings, bright lights, greenery, and high-perching ostriches.

Timberview Helicopters

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

What a treat for my wife and I to fly over Kansas City's most prominent landmarks. Loved everything about the experience from the time we walked into the terminal until we landed. Only bad thing was, the time went too fast!! Would have loved to stay up longer. Very cool.
