With pterodactyl hang-gliding fading in popularity over the last 65 million years, humans have had to turn to other forms of flight to satisfy aerial urges. Take to the skies with today's Groupon: for $198, you get a 30-minute Extra 300L airplane ride at Gauntlet Warbirds in Sugar Grove (a $330 value).

Passengers of Gauntlet Warbirds stroll the sidewalks of the stratosphere, skimming the clouds high above the skyscrapers of downtown Chicago. Passengers can pull off barrel rolls at up to a rate of 360 degrees per second in the Extra 300L, a certified aerobatic plane. Before each passenger ventures off into the wild blue yonder, one of Gauntlet Warbirds' pilots sits down with them to discuss and design an ideal 30-minute flight, complete with however many wingovers, tailslides, torque rolls, snap rolls, and maki rolls they prefer. After strapping on flight gear and taking to the sky, amateur aerialists can either let the instructor pilot the plane or grab the controls themselves, steering the bird under the instructor's tutelage. Once the plane has returned to terra firma, customers can snap photos with the aircraft while wearing their flight gear. Riders can also purchase videos of their rides ($60, not included in this Groupon) as proof of their victory over a bald eagle in a midair wing-wrestling match.
