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.

NYC Air Service

Checking the Statue of Liberty for bald spots sounds like an activity from a barber’s dream, but passengers in NYC Air Service’s planes do it regularly on sightseeing flights over New York City. The private flights soar over Ellis Island, the Hudson River, and Manhattan’s financial district, where mutual funds can be seen out for their daily strolls. The company's FAA-certified pilots don't just showcase Big Apple landmarks, they also teach aspiring pilots the ropes with hands-on instruction, preparing them to earn their certifications as private or commercial pilots.
