Helicopters are superior to planes in almost every way: vertical takeoff and landing, ability to maneuver in any direction, and more likely to deposit Green Day outside your high school because they heard there was "a pretty cool prom goin' down." Let your dreams soar with this Groupon.

$174 for 90-Minute Helicopter Discovery Flight Experience ($349 Value)

The Discovery Flight begins with in-depth preflight instruction on the ground from an FAA-certified instructor followed by a 30-minute flight aboard a Robinson R22 Beta II helicopter with the participant at the controls. Following a path outlined by the LA Live Tour, instructor and participant will soar past such landmarks as the downtown skyline, the Staples Center, Kodak Theater, Dodger Stadium, and the Hollywood sign. Once safely back on land, the participant will receive a certificate of flight completion, a commemorative photo, and an promotional DVD.

Orbic Air

For more than two decades, the FAA-certified flight instructors at Orbic Air have maintained an impeccable safety record while escorting sightseers and pilots in training through the sky aboard a reliable fleet of Robinson helicopters. With Van Nuys Airport as a home nest, casual travelers can charter a scenic ride to Los Angeles, Big Bear, or Las Vegas in order to make a flashy entrance or rescue a kitten stuck on top of the Luxor pyramid. The Orbic Air flight school sees enrollees from first flights all the way to commercial-pilot certificates with guidance from expert instructors.
