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

  • $169 for a 40-minute aerobatic flight adventure for one (a $350 value)
  • $329 for a 40-minute aerobatic flight adventure for two (a $700 value)

On each adventure, an FAA-certified pilot trained in aerobatics takes participants aloft one at a time for 40 minutes of white-knuckle thrills. After receiving an introductory lesson and slipping into their included safety parachutes, participants climb aboard the aircraft one at a time and prepare for a flight that includes a series of wingovers, loops, and barrel rolls high above the beautiful Bay Area topography.

San Carlos Flight Center

The team of FAA-certified pilots at San Carlos Flight Center opens up the world of aviation to aspiring pilots and sightseers. During comprehensive flight instruction, the team teaches pupils the skills needed to operate flight controls, land, take off, and keep seagulls from mistaking the plane as their king. Training sessions include everything from private pilot certification to specialty and advanced training. High-tech simulators such as the Xwind help burgeoning aerialists get their bearings before soaring the skies in a Cessna suited for training. To share bird's-eye vistas of the Golden Gate Bridge, coastal cliffs, and the city of San Francisco huddled up against the blue Bay, the crew also offers aerial tours.
