What You'll Get

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, lifting off from the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

From the faux flight decks of their Gulfstream simulators, Fly-A-Sim's instructional aeronauts offer 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 without the hassle of expensive planes or unsteady cardboard wings. Courses commence with a 60-minute preflight briefing, with would-be barnstormers boning up on the gauges, levers, and dashboard hula dancers of the simulator's reproduction equipment panel. 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. 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 imaginary aircraft are safely delivered and imaginary skycaps properly tipped, ceremonial captains receive 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.


Fly-A-Sim has been featured in Pegasus News,, and D magazine:

  • It could only be more real on an actual aircraft. – Kena Sosa,
  • Even in this age of technology and hyperrealistic video games, it’s easy to forget that you were never actually six thousand feet above ground level. – Amy Seslowsky, Pegasus News
