On May 15th, noon to 2pm...take a chance...take a ride...give it a whirl!
If you've never ridden in a helicopter, you don't know what you're missing.  I have an old boyfriend to thank for my first helo ride...he thought it would be fun...I thought he was crazy.  

But believe it or not, it was a blast! 
Unlike regular planes, there's no rolling down the runway to a gentle lift-off...in a helicopter the planet literally falls out from under you... (In a good way!)


As I discovered, a helo ride makes a great date --  but it can also be one of those rare remember-forever moments to share with a child!
