What You'll Get

The need to “feel the wind in your hair” is best fulfilled by parachuting, though it can also be fulfilled by riding in a convertible, swinging on a tire swing, or getting sneezed on by a jumbo jet. Feel the breeze with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a one-hour ride in a powered parachute craft over Lake Lavon from Future Flight, LLC (a $199 value).

The staff at Future Flight, LLC, has ushered patrons skyward in slow-soaring powered parachute crafts since 1984. An adept aviator explains the ins and outs of operating the craft and conducts a safety inspection before buckling into a two-seat, open-air vehicle, similar to a go-kart, with the passenger and an eagle co-pilot. As the cart rolls down a runway, the chute unfurls, lifting the ensemble into the air. The newly skyborne glide at 28 mph over the scenic shorelines of Lake Lavon, climbing up to heights of 1,000 feet above the ground. Passengers eager to take the reins can, after brief directions on how to use the simple controls, practice guiding the craft. At the end of the hour, the air ace reduces power and guides the throttle for a slow descent, pulling the chute for a landing as smooth as a silk-clad conman.

About Future Flight, LLC

For nearly 30 years, Future Flight has unfurled its fleet of parachutes to send riders soaring through the open sky aboard lightweight two-person flying machines. Sky captains brief each patron during a preflight inspection and provide a few minutes of on-the-ground instruction on flying powered parachutes to ensure a safe and fun trip. The seasoned aviators then throttle up a rear propeller from the pilot's seat and rumble down the runway until the attached parachute swells with wind and lifts the craft into the air, sending pairs soaring above the Lake Lavon shoreline at altitudes of up to 1,000 feet. For patrons interested in amateur migration, Future Flight also runs training lessons for solo flying in sport-pilot and Far Part 103 Ultralight craft, and sells new and used vehicles and accessories.
