There is an air force base near me. The runway is 1 mile from my house. I see lots of Chinooks. Do you know how I can get a ride? I've heard of civilians getting rides.Helicopters can be alot of fun, I'd love to get my rotary rating some day.
If you want to go up look for a small airshow or fly in, they are usually your best bet and many times the cost of the ride is tax deductible since lots of those guys operate as 501C3's. I've taken my daughter in a couple Vietnam Era Hueys. First at 4 then again at 14. She loved both times but only remembers the more recent one, both times were at small airshows.
