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 today's Groupon: for $139, you get a 30-minute helicopter tour from Heliventures (a $350 value).
Backed by more than 36 years of commercial operational flight experience, the professional pilots at the Starr Aviation–insured flight school Heliventures shuttle passengers through the scenic North Carolinian skies. Aerial adventures launch from the Concord Regional Airport in trusted Sikorsky Light helicopters, selected for their impeccable safety record and inability to feel human emotions. The 30-minute tour whisks cloud reachers through the serene skyways and over the Charlotte Motor Speedway and race-team shops, allowing fans to admire the tracks and racecars below, or search the skies in vain for long-lost family parakeets.
