Flying is a superbiful way to get close enough to a cloud to milk it or to visit your secret sky family. Bolster the bond earthly loved ones just don't understand with today's Groupon: for $67, you get a Toronto helicopter tour with Toronto Helicopter Tours (a $111.87 value, including HST). Taking off from the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, Toronto Helicopter Tours transports land-locked citizens into the upper atmosphere by harnessing the levitating abilities of their safe, comfortable helicopters. With your city tour, you'll experience inertial relief 2,000 feet above Toronto as you snap candids of the city's main attractions, such as the CN Tower, Rogers Centre, and the Royal Ontario Museum. The 15-km tour traverses downtown at speeds of up to 176 kph. Go solo and make some new airborne friends, or buy four Groupons for you and three staring-contest opponents and enjoy approximately eight minutes of aerial time in the privacy of your own copter. This Groupon may be applied toward other tours with additional upgrade charges, though it may not be combined with other special offers.
The Helicopter Company Inc.
With The Helicopter Company Inc.—which also operates as Toronto Heli Tours—before you travel by air, you have to travel by water. All clients have to take a brief ferry ride to reach the Toronto Heli Tours outpost at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, where pilots guide a chopper skyward all year round. From their perch 2,000 feet above sea level, passengers take in sweeping glimpses of city landmarks, including the Spadina Museum, Maple Leaf Gardens, and the Air Canada Centre, during expeditions. The copter will also complete a fly-by of the CN Tower, which held the title of world’s tallest free-standing structure from 1976 until 2007—31 years of towering over structures in other countries and centres from visiting NBA teams.
