Sorry, but the helicopter only has two seats, so only one passenger can participate at one time.

Q:

Can I videotape inside the helicopter? How long is actual in-air time?

Alyona  asked on  Sep 17, 2012

A:

The helicopter is equipped with a Go Pro camera recording the flight. You have the option of purchasing this video for an additional charge. You may bring your own camera, however, for the best learning experience with the helicopter controls, you should be hands-free.

Q:

i would like this to be a date thing, how does that work?

chris s.  asked on  Sep 13, 2012

A:

Thanks for the question!

If two of you wish to each use a Groupon for this offer, you may. You can take the instruction at the same time. However, the helicopter has only two seats - one for the pilot, one for the student. So you can take turns of when you are actually in the helicopter. Hope that helps!

For further scheduling inquiries, feel free to call directly at (914) 202-3440. They'll be happy to help!
