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.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $234 for a 40-minute ride in an Extra 300L aerobatic aircraft (a $390 value)
  • $312 for a 40-Minute ride in a T-6 Texan WWII trainer (a $520 value)

This Groupon puts you in the cockpit with a seasoned flight instructor for 40 minutes. When the time is right, you'll get a chance to control the Extra 300L—a certified aerobatic aircraft that can roll 360 degrees per second—or the 1944 T-6 Texan warplane. Before both flights, riders meet with the pilot to determine how extreme the in-flight maneuvers should be. For more info, browse the FAQ.
