Up in the Air
Start at Linden Airport -- located just 20 minutes from NYC via public transportation -- with a thrilling hands-on lesson led by a certified instructor. After 30 minutes of thorough on-the-ground flight controls and safety training, you'll take the controls of a high-performance R22 chopper. For 15 minutes, you'll soar the skies -- with the picturesque Manhattan skyline in the background -- seeing sights through the 180-degree panoramic windshield in the heated or open cockpit. Opt for extended air time when you sign up. Each trainee will leave with an FAA-authorized certificate -- and flight time also counts towards a future pilot's license.
