  • Ever dreamed of flying a helicopter? Well, now's your chance to make your dreams come true with this Learn to Fly experience.

    Your aerial adventure will begin when you meet your friendly FAA Certified Flight Instructor. Together, you will review helicopter flight controls, flying techniques, and safety procedures during the 30-minute pre-flight ground briefing.

    Next, you and your pilot will climb into one of the most popular flight training helicopters in the world, the Robinson R-44. This aircraft was specifically selected for its superior safety record, performance, and comfort over other helicopter models.

    Your pilot will handle take-off and landing but mid-air - you'll take control of the helicopter and learn how the professionals fly on an everyday basis. You'll even test out a few basic maneuvers!

    Everyone will enjoy incredible views of Westchester County. Sights during flight may include the New York/Connecticut coastline and the Hudson River!

    Discover the joy of flight with this Learn to Fly experience. You won't regret it!
