Hi everyone, thanks for your help. Has anyone had experience with the schools mentioned here? I emailed Long Island Helicopter, the one at Republic Airport, but am a bit worried now that people here are saying it is shut down. Does anyone know about the one in Ronkonkoma? We will be staying in Huntington, so a school on Long Island would really be much more convenient than elsewhere. But I want to be sure to pick a good school as well, that should come first. We will have a car available. Again, thanks so much for your help.
Hello, I am looking for a birthday present for my boyfriend. He's always dreamed about flying a helicopter but I don't think he's been in one. If he has, he definitely wasn't able to touch the controls. I was searching the web and found out that there are intro flights that let you do that. We're currently living in Spain, and all I found so far were intro flights for over 500 dollars. We'll be in Long Island in a few weeks, so I thought maybe I can just schedule a flight there. Does anyone have recommendations for flight schools, and can you tell me how much I have to expect to pay for this? Also, he's not a US citizen. Would that cause problems insurancewise? We'll just be in the US for a few weeks on a visa waiver. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
