NEW YORK, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ --  



New York City-area residents are invited to experience hands-on flight training – flying a helicopter with their iPhone device – at the first Brookstone AR.Drone Flight School event. Brookstone, the only brick-and-mortar retailer where fans can see the AR.Drone fly, is teaming up with Parrot, the creators of the AR.Drone, to give people their first hands-on training and expert flight demonstrations with this year's hottest holiday gift—the AR.Drone.

The first quadricopter controlled by an iPod touch®, iPhone® or iPad™ device, the Parrot AR.Drone combines real and virtual worlds to offer an unparalleled flight experience. A front camera broadcasts and streams what the AR.Drone is seeing onto the iPod touch, iPhone or iPad screen, providing an opportunity for augmented reality games.
