The lovely Willem Dafoe may have been left behind by the helicopter in that touching scene from Platoon, but with today's GrabOne deal you'll be in control of your own chopper with the simulated flight experience of a lifetime.
Pay just €69 for a one hour-long simulated helicopter flight experience with Challenger Helicopters (regularly €240).
The interactive session begins with an introduction to the helicopter's cockpit and all the controls. Next, you'll move into the FAA regulated simulator, which is the only one in the UK and Ireland. Throughout the session, you'll take the controls and learn to master take-off, climbing and landing.
The usual route takes you from London city airport in a Jetranger turbine helicopter towards the Battersea Power station, past the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben and continuing up the Thames, where, if you're brave enough you can fly through Tower Bridge. You can then take the controls and learn to hover and take off.
For those with more experience, there's various scenarios to choose from including sight-seeing along the Thames and a night flight in Las Vegas. The simulator also has the capability to simulate four different helicopter experiences including a Bell 222 (Airwolf).
And excitingly, it can simulate weather conditions from summer days to rocky thunderstorms as well as engine failure challenges.
