On Valentine's Day, take your game up a notch! Here are a few ideas to get you started...

Say your "I do's" while taking in spectacular views as you glide across the Brandywine Valley...WOW! 

The American Helicopter Museum and Education Center is promoting high-flying romance
'the helicopter way' on Sunday, February 14th from noon until 2pm.

Whether you want to propose, renew vows, get engaged or simply 'engage' in a fun and crazy Valentine adventure - leap out of your comfort zone (but not the chopper, please!) and make reservations right away!

The ride calls for 'buckling up'...
a good metaphor for the marriage, as well :)
The Proposal Package 
Accommodations for 3 in a helicopter - two seats in back for the happy couple and one next to the pilot for a photographer, child, friend, prospective mother-in-law (yikes!)
or minister. $250.00 includes a fresh rose and bottle of champagne.  Also available is an Engagement Flight Package.

Advance reservations and payment are required by Wednesday, Feb. 10th:
> Call AHMEC at 610-436-9600
> Click her to Make Reservations Via PayPal
> Or visit the Gift Shop Wednesdays through Saturdays, 10 am to 5 pm, and Sundays, noon to 5 pm. Proposal Package rides are assigned flight times.

This couple obviously got married in the summer.
For your February Valentine ride I suggest 

something a tad warmer.  
Do they make Puffer Gowns?#?!?!!
Regular Flight Package for a Fun Valentine Memory
Helicopter rides are also available for $60.00 per person – no reservation required - and can be purchased via the website or phone or in the museum's Gift Shop.

The American Helicopter Museum is the nation’s premier aviation museum devoted exclusively to helicopters. Established in 1996, the nonprofit organization collects, restores and displays rotary-wing aircraft, including over 35 civilian and military helicopters, autogiros and convertaplanes.
