Get to the Chopper!

It's time to wrap up the Florida blogs and talk about our last adventure in the sunshine state. During our week stay at Star Island Resort we cruised up and down the main road numerous times and continued to see a sign for helicopter rides that just spoke to us. It was just begging us to go in and check it out.

So we did.

We decided to go for a chopper ride on a morning where it finally wasn't pouring down rain. As we pulled up, the first thing that caught our attention was how small the helicopter actually was. Not sure what we really expected, but nonetheless, it wasn't as big we imagined.

The folks inside at Sunshine Helicopter were very hospitable. The staff there displayed some great customer service asking us questions and just making us feel very welcomed. After they quickly and easily discovered it was our first time ever riding a helicopter, it was time to strap in and get a bird's-eye view of the area.

Now we totally understand why they always do a helicopter ride on the Bachelor.

Our ride overlooking Orlando gave us awesome views of Epcot, downtown Disney and local resorts.  As we cruised through the air, it also felt pretty bad ass to wear the headphones and whatnot on the chopper. Kinda felt like a movie as we spoke to the pilot and each other through the headsets. The chopper ride presented a very high level of "cool".

It only took one time, but we're basically addicted to helicopter rides now. Jeremy is actually looking into flight lessons because apparently, it doesn't take quite as long as we thought. We'll keep you updated if that actually goes anywhere.

If you're in the Charlotte area and happen to own a helicopter, we'd be happy to join you for a ride!
