What You'll Get
Pilots are the cowboys of the air, roaming the wide-open skies and herding children's runaway balloons. Giddy up, up, and away with today's Groupon: for $235, you get a 30-minute ultimate biplane experience from Biplane Rides Indy in Greenwood (a $399 value).
One of Biplane Rides Indy's seasoned instructors guides aspiring pilots in the intricacies of a 1942 Boeing Stearman biplane during an exploratory lesson and 30-minute flight, in which guests will have a chance to fly the plane themselves. Originally used by the Army Air Forces in World War II, the biplane features two sets of controls that let students take the wheel from the cockpit or simply enjoy the views of clouds, scenery, and snowmen being born as the pilot guides the plane through the air. The open-air plane’s 300-horsepower Lycoming radial engine launches it into the skies April 1–October 1, weather permitting.
