Greatest Generation Aircraft - Washington Heights: 30-Minute Father’s Day Flight Experience for One or Two in WWII-Era Plane from Greatest Generation Aircraft (Up to 59% Off)

There are few things as liberating as being able to fly, which is why humans invented airplanes and why penguins constantly try to sabotage them by climbing into their jet engines. Feel the freedom of the skies with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $99 for a 30-minute flight experience over the Metroplex for one person in a Douglas C-47 (a $230 value)
  • $189 for a 30-minute flight experience over the Metroplex for two people in a Douglas C-47 (a $460 value)

Rides can be scheduled between now and Thursday, June 28. During each 30-minute flight experience, pilots soar over urban and rural locales as passengers are transported back to the 1940s in a fully restored military transport plane used in World War II. Riders don ear protection to combat the plane's nearly 1,500-horsepower twin engines and can explore the plane's interior and take photos from the windows. Riders also receive a Greatest Generation Aircraft patch, and can have a souvenir photo taken professionally. Flights seat up to 16 passengers.

Southern Cross C-47

Originally a TWA aircraft, the Southern Cross Douglas C-47 was adopted by the Army Air Corps to shuttle troops to the front. The twin-propeller plane survived World War II and in the ensuing years underwent a series of makeovers. Its career includes years spent as a reliable set of wings for Delta Air Lines, a troupe of skydiving enthusiasts, and at least one head of state. The C-47 is now meticulously restored to its original WWII-era condition and in the dutiful care of Greatest Generation Aircraft, a nonprofit organization that introduces 21st-century crowds to the C-47 during rides and aerial shows.
