That Helicopter Flight you thought was out of reach? It’s within reach.

That Helicopter Flight you thought was out of reach? It’s within reach.

It’s true; most people see taking a helicopter flight as a luxury they cannot afford, be it a matter of finance or time. Joy flights are catalogued as something they might love to do as a special treat some day in the indeterminable future, should the helicopter gods permit it. Coupled with the uncertainties is the real possibility of experiencing vertigo, or a lingering fear of heights, or a want for leisure time that simply never presents itself as a whole day.

In the immortal words of Douglas Adams: Don’t Panic.

If you have been wanting to see your world from above, and simply haven’t found the funds or guts to do it yet, Pterodactyl Helicopters has the answer: Helicopter Joy Flights.

What’s a Helicopter Joy Flight then?

These (approximately) 5-minute helicopter flights, costing usually no more than $65 per person, are designed to give you a taste of the thrill of a helicopter ride while allowing you to test the waters and see if it’s an experience that you’re interested in repeating in the future.

We’re pretty sure you’re going to love it.
