Whirly-bird tour

There are a couple of charter helicopter services based in Trivandrum - Deccan Aviation and King Rotors - which offer a variety of packages meant for tourists. One of them is a heli-tour of the city. A friend of mine - similarly inclined towards Trivandrum - and I wondered if we could hitch a ride. When we enquired about the hole such a joy ride would put in out pockets, we learned that it wud be a yawning one, to the tune of 35,000 bucks!! But, there are no shortage of customers for the choppers, mostly high end tourists from the luxury resorts at Kovalam. Sigh....better get that piggy bank out!
