So for my 30th birthday my parents got me a little adventure. It was so much fun. We flew around 500 feet at the highest. And we went through the Hocheemon Trail (who knows how that's spelled) - imagine a roller coaster through trees, without the coaster. And we did some emergency protocol stuff (the pilot is an instructor) like a regular and a 180 descent. Both of which require him to turn off the engine! It was amazing!
I totally recommend Ocean Helicopter - they have a flight school and everything!
