    Three Way in the Sky: Helicopter, Plane, and Skydiving

    Looking to start living like a real-life action hero? Trade the beach for a helicopter ride. Trade the bar for a airplane flight lesson. Trade the Golden Girls reruns for a tandem skydive jump. And do it all in one day. It all begins with a low-altitude whirlybird flight from Manhattan to Republic Airport in Farmingdale, Long Island. Then, pair up with a teammate, and an FAA-certified instructor, and take your place behind the controls of a Piper Warrior aircraft! Airborne, you’ll handle 80% of the flying as you make your way to Calderton. Communicate with your instructor via headset to get instructions on various maneuvers, and perform daring aerial feats to score points for your team! Arrive in Calderton for a briefing on the essentials of tandem skydiving. Then take the plunge from 13,500 feet. Reach free-fall speeds as you plummet towards the ground, before your parachute is deployed and you continue your descent for a gentle landing. Afterwards, it’s back aboard the Piper Warrior for a return trip to Republic Airport. This time, your teammate will take the controls. Cheer them on, because upon landing, your points will be tallied and ranked against other participants to see who’s up to snuff in the daring-do department. Win or lose, this adventure ought to leave you feeling on cloud nine, long after you descend from the sky. But just in case you’re not quite ready to call it a day, a return helicopter trip should provide a fitting hero’s return to the city!
