There are few things as liberating as being able to fly, which is why humans invented airplanes and why penguins constantly try to sabotage them by climbing into their jet engines. Feel the freedom of the skies with this Groupon.

In the flight simulators, pilots sit in a cockpit outfitted with a full instrument panel and gauges that respond to the plane's virtual movements. Customers then helm virtual flights between any two major airports in the world, uided by detailed flying maps; along the way, they fly through their choice of simulated weather.
The pilot watches the single-engine aircraft's gauges adjust as he takes off from London's Heathrow Airport. Moments later, he dives an F-16 fighter jet beneath the Brooklyn Bridge. Flight Master's virtual flight simulator empowers prospective pilots to jump between experiences like these while ensconced in a cockpit modelled after those used in professional flight training. Flight assistants guide guests, acquainting them with the instrument panel as they fly over virtual terrains that range from detailed cities to wild landscapes. For added effect, the simulator adjusts light according to time of day, as well as challenges pilots with weather changes, bouts of turbulence, and Godzilla attacks. Beyond simulated flying, Flight Master also throws kids' birthday parties in the flight simulator.
