With the Prada Cup racing moving away from the Stadium Courses, this weekend, Helicopter Me still has some flights/seats available - so you can experience the spectacular AC75's racing from the best seat in the house.

Regardless of whether the racing is on Course E or Course A, you can be looking down on the race start just a couple of minutes after walking out to the helicopter.

The Brits have their backs to the wall, and are on a mission to become the first British crew in the contemporary America's Cup history to be the Challenger. Luna Rossa are very keen to emulate their feat in the 2000 America's Cup and take on Team New Zealand.

Your pilot will do circuits of the course for the entire duration of the race. Race commentary through your headset throughout the helicopter ride will keep you up to date with insights from down on the water, but you have the best seats to see what is happening for yourself!

The modern Airbus Eurocopters operated by Helicopter Me are the ideal machines for the job, too. Large windows, executive spec interiors and noise cancelling BOSE headsets make them perfectly comfortable for the 30-45 minute duration of this ultimate Auckland helicopter experience.

Flights are for the duration of the race, full commentary provided through headsets.

Two races are scheduled for tomorrow and Sunday - starting at 4.15pm with the second at 5.15pm.

The fare is $749 per seat for one race.
