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 $129, you get a 20-minute helicopter tour for two people ($89.99 per person), plus two matted 8"x10" aerial photos ($29.99 each) and one commemorative t-shirt (a $24.99 value) from Alpha Helicopters, valid at all west coast locations. 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 earthbound humans with a fleet of domesticated helicopters. While soaring swiftly above the ground, riders may catch glimpses of sea dwellers, such as manatees, dolphins, and sea turtles, 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. Adventure seekers will also receive a commemorative Alpha Helicopters t-shirt to publicly proclaim their allegiance to rotorcraft travel or, when prompted by extreme enthusiasm, swing around their head like a helicopter. There is no age limit, meaning children can levitate in safety seats at the same altitude as their parental counterparts.
