If you are seeing frequent helicopter flies over your head in the city, its the new Helicopter ride organised by four people from Jamkhandi Taluk.
What is It?
Helicopter rides are meant only for VIPs and Politicians and even though people can take a flight to experience, but they don’t get to fly over their hometown. In order to make people enjoy this beautiful backwater and city landscapes we planned this says Nadaf, one of the organizers
Helicopter ride was started on 10th October on the occasion of Dasara Festival and today is the last day to enjoy the ride.
For a ride of 15min over your home town, it will cost you 3000/- bucks., Although its little expensive but definitely worth it considering the opportunity. There is a 10% discount for children and senior citizens.
Similar type of events are planned in Jamkhandi and Mudhol talukas in the same month.
Helicopter is rented from a Mumbai based agency, and each ride can have 6 members.
The response has been overwhelming says the organizers, there have been more than 100 rides already, more than 300 people have enjoyed it.
