What You'll Get
Flying is a lot like having a staring contest—even with utter concentration, you’ll never be better at it than birds. Go toe-to-beak with our winged companions with this Groupon.
$139 for a Private 30-minute Helicopter-Piloting Experience ($250 Value)
After a Q&A with a pilot, a preflight briefing will imbue you with basic knowledge about helicopter components, controls, and safety. Next, you'll settle into a leather seat in the cockpit and take the controls under the instruction of an experienced pilot, receiving guidance through a Bose noise-canceling headset. After Westchester County Airport fades into the distance on the climb, you'll also learn to turn and hover while embarking on views of New York City and the Hudson Valley during the flight. The instructor can perform more advanced maneuvers upon request before the ride concludes
