Absorb the wonderment of flight with today’s Groupon for a helicopter ride over the Baltimore Grand Prix from Baltimore Marine Centers’ Baltimore Helicopter Services.

The experienced fliers at Baltimore Marine Centers’ Baltimore Helicopter Services whisk up to four friends into the sky for 15–20 minutes of exhilarating bird's-eye views of the Baltimore Grand Prix, which takes place downtown near Camden Yards and the scenic Inner Harbor. Rotors from the powerful Bell 407 helicopter churn with the help of Jet A Fuel to ensure a smooth and safe ride free of ethanol-siphoning pigeons. During flight, friends slip into the comforts of leather seats, heat or air conditioning, and a stereo system as they watch racecars zip around the 2-mile street circuit in search of fame, fortune, or a mechanical rabbit. The chopper seats four or five passengers at a time, and takes off in 20-minute increments from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of the Baltimore Grand Prix weekend. Flights require a minimum of four passengers and groups will be combined to meet this minimum. Tours may fly with up to six passengers.
