Pilots are the cowboys of the air, roaming the wide-open skies and herding children's runaway balloons. Giddy up, up, and away with this Groupon.

Choose from Five Options

Inside the life-size cockpit of the F-16 or F-35 simulator, pilots experience the thrill of jetting around in a fighter on one-hour combat missions. Team missions link the two participants' jets together for a tandem mission above the clouds. Alternatively, virtual pilots can choose to launch flight attendants rather than missiles while flying the Boeing 737 passenger liner with the exact cockpit layout of active commercial jets today.

The full-size Formula One racecar simulator lets drivers feel the g-force as they accelerate, brake, and turn through a realistic track depicted on a 12'x6.5' screen. Racing gloves are required and provided at no charge.

Every option includes a guide who gives step-by-step instructions to start the experience, and works with each client to tailor the session to their skill level.

SimCenter Tampa Bay

Small lights blink inside the cockpit as directions from air-traffic controllers roll in over the speakers. A pilot begins taxiing, speeding up until the plane rises off the runway and begins soaring over the water below. At least that's what it looks like to the participant and pilot who perch inside SimCenter Tampa Bay's celebrated Boeing 737 simulator, a realistic apparatus that has garnered mentions on the website of Plane & Pilot. The 737 will soon be joined in the Clearwater showroom by C-172 and Airbus 340 simulators, which will join together into one giant jet with a lion's face to fight the enemies of Earth.
