North Carolina earned the title "First in Flight" by being the site of the Wright brothers' first successful flight and the first state to master levitation. Honor the history of soaring with today's Groupon: for $89, you get a tandem flight (a $180 value) from Rapture Air Paragliding School.

The USHPA-certified instructors at Rapture Air Paragliding School share the joys of air travel for first-time aviators year-round on tandem flights that last a combined 30 minutes between training and air time. Students receive a short briefing on safety precautions and tricks for outracing clouds before saddling up with an instructor at the top of a 200-foot hill. After a 50-foot jog to the take-off point, pairs gently soar into the blue beyond, savoring an introductory taste of paragliding. Riders must weigh less than 220 pounds to slip the surly bonds of gravity on flights that leave beginning at 8:30 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.
