Airplanes are thrilling and majestic to watch, especially when they're shredding through vengeful, murderous clouds. Be a vapor gaper with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $99 for a 30-minute Lake Matthews demo flight for two (a $198 value)
  • $199 for a 90-minute Santa Catalina demo flight for two (a $398 value)

Both demo flights begin on the ground, where instructors review flight basics before handing passengers a rental headset and climbing into the cockpit. Once in the air, the Cessna 172 aircraft weaves among the skies above Santa Catalina—which includes bird's-eye views of Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm—or the Lake Matthews reservoir. Though the certified instructor handles complicated maneuvers such as takeoff and landing, passengers can take the controls of the plane once it's safely on the sky's nitrogen railroad tracks.

Fly Corona

While sailing high above Southern California in the cockpit of a Cessna Skyhawk, a pilot can look down at the land below and see everything from undisturbed wilderness to commuters stuck in traffic. The pilots and certified instructors at Fly Corona help others uncover this bird's-eye view of the world through demonstration flights and individual lessons. During demos, passengers frequently take the controls themselves as the instructor supervises, and several full aviation training programs help students work toward getting their pilot's license, an ID vital for getting into eagles' mountain-top nightclubs.
