1968 Amusement Engineering Helicopter Trainer Coin-op Commercial E/m Arcade Game For Sale
From 1968, this Amusement Engineering "Learn to Fly" Helicopter Trainer Commercial Coin-op Arcade Game was the first of many imitators to release an helicopter oriented arcade game. Actually, the concept was copied from the 1940 Kirk Air Defense game. During the entire Helicopter Trainer production run, Amusement Engineering made numerous changes to the score and timing mechanisms, as well as making differences in the internal scenery to accommodate these changes.
The game powers up fine and the timer and score units function properly, but it needs some adjustments to the helicopter and slip rings to be perfect. The cabinet is overall in very good original condition, but there are some areas that are weak. Although it flies, the helicopter is not the same one the game came with. Also, the front lock is missing. A copy of the service and operations manual is included.
A this game is 45 years old, it is being sold in "as-is" condition. I have not gone through the game completely to verify everything in it is working, but as you can see from the photos, the helicopter flies and scores.
The game can be picked up from Hartford, CT for no charge, or I can assist you with shipment via Precision Transportation (NAVL) (who do a fine job with a "blanket wrap" door to door service), or the shipper of your choice. Shipping arrangements must be made by the purchaser, but I will be happy to assist you with coordinating the pickup, etc.
This game can also be delivered within 250 miles of Hartford, CT for about $200 by a local delivery service that handles a lot of arcade games.
