Gift Cards

cardWhat do you get for the person who has everything?

A Vertical Advantage Helicopters gift card is the ultimate gift idea and is guaranteed to impress. Available in any amount to accommodate any budget. Great for a midday sightseeing flight, or a romantic flight at dusk. Gift cards are also a great option for Discovery Flights. Discovery flights are treated as a first lesson and are a hands-on introduction to the world of helicopter flying. The student gets to operate the controls and fly the aircraft (with the instructor's help of course).
