Flying is a lot like having a staring contest: even with utter concentration, you’ll never be better at it than birds. Go toe to beak with our winged companions with this Groupon.

The Deal

  • $129 for a 45-minute helicopter-flying lesson (a $299 value)

Students spend 30 minutes on the ground learning how to pilot the Robinson R44 helicopter in a group setting. Then they take to the skies, spending 15 minutes with the pilot. Lessons take place every other Friday, Saturday, and Sunday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Timberview Helicopters

The professional pilots at Timberview Helicopters ferry passengers high into the clouds aboard a sky-scraping whirlybird during flight tours through Destin, Kansas City, and Key West. Having chartered flights for National Geographic and the Travel Channel, these pilots expertly navigate planes toward sweeping, picturesque views, allowing sightseers to steal glances of Fort Walton Beach, downtown Kansas City, and Key West's ocean views from a perspective normally reserved for birds and astronauts with binoculars. Additionally, their high-definition videos grant guests a lasting commemoration of their in-flight experience. When they're not chartering tours, they teach budding pilots the gravity-defying tricks of their trade through pilot training and lug precious shipments from port to port with their cargo-lifting services.
