Super Bowl: $599 for 15-minute helicopter hop to the start line

Helicopter hops to the Super Bowl in Glendale, Ariz., start at $599 a person.

Eager to kick off your Super Bowl experience in style? If you're going to the big game in Glendale, Ariz., you might want to arrive by air.

Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters is offering fans a luxury car plus helicopter hop to those going to watch the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks square off at the University of Phoenix Stadium on Sunday.

The ride isn't just about getting to the game, either. In a helicopter, you'll get a bird's-eye view of the stadium as well as the surrounding Sonoran Desert.

Here's how it works: Papillon will arrange to have drivers pick you up at your Scottsdale/Phoenix area hotel in a luxury vehicle and take you to the Scottsdale Airport.

From there, you board an EC130 helicopter, which has large touring windows and holds six people.

Once you touch down at Glendale's airport, a car will be there to hustle you the short distance to the stadium. After the game, a coach will take you back to your hotel.

Prices start at $599 per person for the helicopter ride and car service.
