Glide to earth safely with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a 30-minute discovery flight from Adventure Aviation Trike Flights in Chelan (a $120 value).
During discovery flights, Adventure Aviation Trike Flights guides fliers along aerial explorations in their light-sport-weight-shift trikes⎯an elegant machine that's half motorized tricycle and half one-winged aircraft. An experienced pilot powers up the cloud-riding stallion and ventures into the atmosphere to pave the way toward lofty adventure, soaring over scenic Lake Chelan and peering down at ant-size humans and invisible-size ants. Each sky-skimming guest receives a hands-on piloting experience, learning the basics of trike-airplane operation while skirting through the open air. Trike Flights proffers an engaging experience that can be enjoyed by novice and experienced fliers alike.
