After simulator and ground school, students and instructor commemorate their flight over mountains and lakes with DVD and photos
Rotor F/X - Van Nuys
There are few things as liberating as being able to fly, which is why humans invented helicopters and why penguins constantly try to sabotage them by eating their propellers. Feel the freedom of the skies with this Groupon.
$199 for a Two-Hour Helicopter Flight Lesson for One ($399 Value)
To launch their flight experience, students orient themselves to the mechanics and controls of the helicopter during ground school and simulator training. They then take to the skies with an FAA-certified instructor, flying over the Los Angeles area and peeping views of sites such as the Santa Monica mountains and Lake Balboa. An HD video commemorates the flight as does a photo package and a certificate of completion. Students leave with flight-training manuals and a pilot logbook, in which lies evidence of their first recorded flight and first sky-borne drag-race victory against a flock of seagulls.
