The human obsession with flight stems from a refusal to accept limitations and an intense desire to finally move out of gravity’s basement. Claim your own airspace with today’s Groupon: for $199, you get a Bay Tour flight package from Hayward Flight (a $410 value). The package includes the following:

  • A 45-minute San Francisco sightseeing tour for up to two additional passengers, including a hands-on brief flight instruction for one person
  • A complimentary certificate of completion with photos

The FAA-certified instructors at Hayward Flight usher up to three aeronautical explorers through the scenic skies over San Francisco during 45-minute tours loaded with information and sights to see. At the onset of each air experience, a practiced pilot explains flight basics before guiding the most ambitious passenger through hands-on maneuvers such as climbs, turns, and patty-cake games with pelicans. All the while, the airborne Cessna soars down the coast over iconic Bay Area landmarks, including the Bay Bridge, Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, Pier 39, and downtown San Francisco. Upon completion, participants receive a complimentary certificate, a pair of invisible wings, and photos of themselves in the plane and its cockpit.

This Groupon is valid for up to three people, but only one person is permitted to fly the airplane under the guidance of the instructor.

Hayward Flight

On a sunny afternoon, a small plane speeds down a runway and takes to the sky, its occupants gazing down at the streets of San Francisco, sailboats speeding through the bay, and the coppery sails of the Golden Gate Bridge. A small tour group or a student pilot sits in the belly of the plane, marveling at the thrill of flight.

Hayward Flight’s staff of FAA-certified instructors and pilots shares that experience with everyone—from young children to aspiring airline pilots—during scenic tours and private plane rentals. Pilot training classes emphasize sophisticated simulator practice and in-air flight, and students can earn private and commercial pilot licenses behind the controls of the Hayward’s fleet of Cessna aircraft and domesticated dragons.

    “Ask for Rick - sweetest guy with a very focused, calming vibe, which is what you want when flying a plane! Book early if you want a weekend lesson and be aware the air time is only about 20-25 minutes, but feels much longer when you're the pilot. I look forward to trying their bay tour for a different perspective of beautiful SF! ”
