Flying is a lot like having a staring contest: even with utter concentration, you’ll never be better at it than birds. Go toe-to-beak with our winged companions with today's Groupon: for $199, you get a 90-minute flight-simulator experience from Fly-A-Sim (a $399 value), lifting off from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

From the flight decks of their Gulfstream simulators, Fly-A-Sim's instructional aeronauts provide altitudinal exhilaration without leaving the comfortable grasp of terra firma. Fly-A-Sim's Aviator Flights hand over control sticks to would-be barnstormers, replicating the feeling of flight in the same simulators used by pilots-in-training without the hassle of expensive planes or unsteady cardboard wings. Courses commence with a 60-minute preflight briefing, with students boning up on the gauges, levers, and dashboard hula dancers of the simulator's reproduction equipment panel. Pairs of pretend pilots take the stick in one of Fly-A-Sim's simulators, swapping stints as pilot and copilot during an immersive 30-minute sensory event that takes earthbound aces 6,000 feet above a replicated landscape.

Each participant can master the essentials of the virtual cockpit with authentic sound, motion, and video, getting a first-hand taste of takeoffs, landings, and dogfights with lost Space Invaders. Once simulated aircraft are safely delivered and simulated skycaps properly tipped, each ceremonial captain receives a commemorative care package including cockpit photographs, a Fly-A-Sim cap, and a certificate of completion. Fly-A-Sim's Aviator Flights are suitable for all ages and experience levels, from fledging fliers to jet-set vets.

Pilot For a Day

Pilot For a Day offers customers the unique, challenging, and educational experience of flight simulation. A certified flight instructor begins each simulated journey with a lesson on how aircraft fly. Afterward, participants board a comfy jet simulator that trains real pilots for a flight in the captain's seat. Realistic sounds and visuals conjure a rush of excitement as participants execute important maneuvers such as takeoffs and landings. No experience is needed to take part.
