Pilots are the cowboys of the air, roaming the wide-open skies and herding children's runaway balloons. Giddy up, up, and away with today's Groupon: for $75, you get a discovery flight for one from Horizon Flight Academy (a $171 value).
Horizon Flight Academy's discovery flights elevate voyagers 2,000 feet above Miami for breathtaking air tours of the land below. Friendly staffers assist patrons in boarding brand-new aircraft or mounting saddled bald eagles before takeoff. From their newfound aerial vantage points, passengers can marvel at the sandy surfaces, palm-swept dunes, and brilliant oceanic hues of Key Biscayne, South Beach, and more as professional pilots navigate the 45-minute flight. Horizon Flight Academy schedules departures from Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, Pompano Beach Airpark, or jet runways hidden beneath private racquetball courts at whatever time best suits clients.
