Early man made many attempts at flying, such as sewing feathers onto his arms and scaling mountain peaks in order to cling to the underbellies of passing comets. Ride along on a new-fashioned flight with today's Groupon: for $159, you get a 20-minute helicopter tour for two people ($129.99 per person), plus two matted 8"x10" aerial photos ($29.99 each), from Alpha Helicopters in Miami (up to a $319.96 value). This Groupon is good for flights departing Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Skyfarers can upgrade to a weekend, sunset, or night flight ($25 additional charge) or bring along a third seat-occupying body ($50 additional charge).
Offering flight training and tours for avid air explorers, Alpha Helicopters serves earth-bound humans with a fleet of domesticated helicopters. While soaring swiftly above the ground, riders can catch glimpses of sea dwellers, such as manatees, dolphins, and sharks, as well as scenic views of landlubbing buildings and Everglades escapees. The whirlybird experience will be remembered for years, thanks in part to two matted 8"x10" photos taken from the ride high above landlocked bodies of water and land. There is a 300lb. weight limit per seat and no age limit, meaning children can levitate in safety seats to the same altitude as their parental counterparts. Pending Alpha's approval, seasoned flight navigators may fly themselves, choreographing 20-minute helicopter tours of awe and break-dancing moves for all accompanying passengers.
Eight Google Mappers give Alpha Helicopters a 4.5-star average:
