Bought a Groupon for my boyfriend and I to get some hands on flight-time in a helicopter, and I'm so glad that I did!! It was well worth it, and such a wonderful experience. Our trainers and flight instructors were really helpful, very laid-back, and provided us with clear and concise information. It was very easy to learn from them, and they made you feel comfortable and excited about the experience as a whole. We will be back, and I highly recommend the experience!

Wonderful school, excellent staff, impressive helicopters! Anything you need that involves flying, go to these guys. They are honest and will shoot you straight. Very professional and personal at the same time. Please do your homework, research the others in the area, you will come back here just as I have.

I got an introductory lesson on Groupon and tried to use it multiple times. Every time it came to the lesson they called and rescheduled (twice because the helicopter was "down"). The last time I even called 2 hours before my lesson to verify we were still on, and they confirmed it was. They then called me 15 MINUTES before my lesson to tell me they were cancelling again. I was literally on the road to their place. I had taken the afternoon off and had driven across town.

The Groupon isnt really a deal. A full hour of flight training is only $295, yet Vertex says that the 20 minutes you get is a value of $280. When we had ours we received no ground instruction, only a brief over view of the helicopter. We also did not receive a log book. You are booked with a group of people and swapped out with the helicopter running and then just shuffled out the door. We also were rescheduled 4 times and were told crap reasons for why was rescheduled. I also have a family friend that works for the company Vertex leases its hangar from and he said that the helicopter Vertex had was repossessed by the owner and that they dont even have one as of now. I would be weary about spending money with Vertex, and look at what other companies charge for a 20 minute discovery flight. The choice is yours but our experience was more of a pain than it was worth.

I found VertexFlight Academy's website while searching the area for helicopter training facilities. I was so impressed by how they looked online that I had to see if they were just as impressive in person, and they most certainly were! I took a demo flight on my visit with Jason, their lead flight instructor, and afterwards I was hooked! I am currently a student and I highly recommend this school! -Chase
