From the website.

           
              The Whiskey Tango package is a 2 hour immersive mission. You and your team will learn to accurately engage reactive steel ground targets
from the exclusive Live-Fire Gunship aerial platform. The first hour of
the tour begins in the orientation room with the mission briefing, in
which you and your team will learn aircraft safety, gear selection &
placement, target transitions and the courses of fire. Following the
orientation, our Range Safety Officer reviews course of fire (COF) in
the exclusive Gunship Hangar. The safety orientation consists of
simulated fire exercises on a static helicopter. In this COF, shooters
will get familiar & comfortable with aerial platform position and
transitions to the shooting platform. Gunners will experience
malfunctions, mag/drum changes, “cease fires”, “shift fires” and
transitions.
Next is the Aerial Target Engagement (ATE) phase. This is a 1 hour flight culminating event takes each gunner into our Gunship aerial
platform and runs them through the live-fire on our 70 acre Aerial
Operation Zone. Upon completion of this mission you and your team will
leave knowing you are one of the few and elite Gunship Gunners. Courses

static position. 2. Engaging targets on the move at various speeds. 3.

Yeah, I missed that part when I first skimmed the website. $2600 to shoot semiauto? No thank you.
Unless someone just has a burning desire to ride in a rotary-winged screaming fireball of death, $2600 gets you a lot more real full-auto across town.

I'm so glad I came across this!!! THESE GUYS POSTING THIS VIDEO ARE A FRONT!!! Six of us flew with the ACTUAL company yesterday and it was an absolute blast!!! We called the number here and got NO answer, looked online and found the OFFICIAL site gunshiphelicopters.com . They actually answered and booked us right away. Turns out the video posted here is by a company looking to send them customers and skim the top for a fee!!! Who does that?
A lot of these comments are seemingly from hardcore gun pros and ex-military people but, not all of us come from such liberal places and get to do these things. My friends from the UK had NEVER handled a gun before so they were pumped with this!!! My wife was freaking out too!!! I mean come on...to go to Vegas and hang out of a chopper door and shoot a mounted gun safely!!! Take my money again please!!! We got extra ammo, a video, and the guys were fun, knowledgable, and had this down to a science. Though some of my group were nervous initially, that quickly dissipated once we got geared up and went through the ground simulation. They have a little black helicopter(I don't know what its called) that takes 2 shooters depending on body weight for $350 each. Thats more affordable than most Vegas dinners. We are tempted to try that one if time permits. Give them a call if you have any doubts 702-467-4613. Life is short and its only money right?

Are you aware that there are people in this world that have a severe medical condition which causes them to be that way? My mother for
instance is one of those people. She is a truck driver that has bad
knees and a bad back from driving the truck but you probably do not care
about that case either. Oh well I am not one of those people I am 6'4"
245lbs and I exercise every day. I would love to see you say something
like to my mother in front of me. Probably never happen though you are
probably just an internet tough guy. I doubt very seriously you would
say that to someones face. Just my thought.What do you think. Oh I am
sorry you probably do not have a brain. I on the other hand will be
happy to buy you a plane ticket to come here and see if you have the
nerve to say that to someone I know.
