Your introductory helicopter flight lesson begins with approximately 30 minutes of ground training that covers helicopter flight controls, flying techniques and safety procedures.  You will then join a professional flight instructor for an exciting 30 minutes of one-on-one flight time.

Once airborne, you'll get the chance to take control of the helicopter while taking in stunning views of Westchester County, the New York/Connecticut coastline and the Hudson River.

Helicopter training is conducted in a Robinson R44 Raven II, specifically selected over other models for their superior safety, performance and comfort.  No previous experience is necessary.

Please Note Flights operate from Purchase (West Harrison), New York, which is located approximately 30 miles northeast of Central Manhattan. Introductory flight lessons are not permitted over New York City airspace.
