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 $99, you get a hands-on, one-on-one helicopter lesson from Heli Flights at the Lincoln Park Airport in New Jersey.

Heli Flights launches students skyward during hands-on helicopter lessons with experienced staff on an R22 helicopter capable of reaching 100 mph. Fledgling flyers begin their sojourn on the ground, with 20–30 minutes of training in flight control and safety. Next, pilot and pupil air kiss the tarmac adieu before they climb into the two-person cockpit, where strapped-in students get hands-on chopper experience for 15 airborne minutes. Extended flight times are available for an additional fee. Soaring past the atmosphere's cloud-shaped sheep, rotor rookies take over the flight controls themselves, or sit back and feed packets of peanuts to the engine as the instructor pilot takes the heli helm. Each trainee leaves the 45- to 60-minute lesson holding an FAA-authorized, bird-notarized certificate for proof of their flight training.
