I really enjoyed my flight. The pilot walked me through the various acrobatic maneuvers we were going to do on the ground and prior to in the air. It was a great experience.

About This Deal

The human obsession with flight stems from a refusal to accept limitations and an intense desire to finally move out of gravity's basement. Claim your own airspace with this Groupon.

$179 for a 30-Minute Aerobatic Airplane Ride ($399.99 Value)

Aerobatic thrill rides prep daredevils with a 20-minute briefing on maneuvers and proper safety before putting them in the passenger seat of a Pitts S2B aerobatic biplane. In the course of 30 minutes, the expert pilot steers the aircraft into arabesque flourishes, barrel rolls, and loops as passengers are glued to their seats by gravitational forces. Although not included with this Groupon, aeronautic aficionados can purchase a recording of the entire flight ($49) with which to augment their fond memories of the skies.
