$99 for an Introductory Helicopter Flight Lesson ($195 Value)

Accompanied by a certified instructor, clients take the flight controls of a Schweizer S-300C helicopter during an introductory flight lesson. Clients guide choppers off the ground and through the air, practicing basic flight maneuvers and hovering above the ground. After lessons, clients can pose for a snapshot with the helicopter while instructors explain the basic aerodynamics behind the vehicle’s ability to fly.

Vector Helicopters

Internationally acclaimed pilot Amelia Earhart walked the landing strips of Purdue University’s runways, preparing her vessel for a groundbreaking around-the-world trip. Seventy-five years later, the pilots and instructors of Vector Helicopters carry on the tradition of aviation excellence through a full schedule of flight instruction and services. Instructors man the helms of the company’s Schweizer S-300C helicopters, helping students master the skills needed for pilot certification or feel the rush of an introductory flight. The airport’s two runways allow students to get in flight time while certified pilots take citizens out for a spin or monitor terrestrial issues—such as traffic, pipelines, or the mole men’s war games—that are difficult to see at ground level.
