Advances in aviation have made air travel safer and decreased the amount of injuries sustained from long-distance pole vaults or nasty slips off Michael Jordan’s shoulders. Marvel at modern sky travel with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get one drop-zone admission ticket to the Cocoa Beach Air Show (a $22.89 value). Choose between the following dates:
- Saturday, November 5, from noon–4 p.m.
- Sunday, November 6, from noon–4 p.m.<p>
With 10 military performers and 6 civilian air vessels, the Cocoa Beach Air Show delights and awes guests seated in the exhilarating drop zone. Against the ocean’s gentle lapping, the daredevil performers careen into the sun, writing invisible graffiti on the sky with impeccable grace, speed, and cursive. U.S. Navy Seals Leap Frogs launch from passing planes, floating ethereally to the sand just feet away from the drop-zone seating area. A B1B Lancer fighter jet screams across the blue expanse, leaving torn sound barriers and envious seagulls in its wake.
Young aspiring pilots can console their earthbound bodies with an inflatable play zone replete with air-filled slides, bouncy rooms, and domesticated clouds. After the aviation spectacle, pilots hang around the autograph tent to shake hands with fans and grant babies the gift of flight with an over-enthusiastic thumbs-up.
