WVNS Meteorologist Mike Slifer got to go for a ride in a chopper and because it was a very slow news day in West Virginia, it was made into a story.

Not sure if a "helictoper" is anything like a helicopter, but they look the same to us. 

As for Slifer and his ride....well....... this has Emmy written all over it.
