Dreams about flying are thrilling, until you wake to find that you're sleep-skydiving again. Soar safely with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get a 30-minute Grand Tour flight from Mauiva Air Tours, taking off daily from Kissimmee Gateway Airport (a $109 value; $99/children 2–10).
Mauiva Air Tours soars over Orlando's picturesque environs and recognizable tourist attractions, earning it a recommendation as one of the area's top three romantic attractions from Fox 35. On a 30-minute Grand Tour, passengers take in all of Orlando’s most popular attractions sans the long lines and rowdy toddlers, gliding past the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and more before banking toward some scenic beauty over the Butler Chain of Lakes, the Animal Kingdom, and Sea World. An ideal capstone for vacationers and a fresh new take on the city for earthbound locals, Mauiva Air Tours open up stunning photographic vistas and unforgettable experiences for amateur photographers, committed naturophiles, and ants who want to see humans as humans see them.
Mauiva operates a fleet of Cessna 172s and 182s, seating three passengers each, guided and controlled by a team of experienced pilot instructors. Tours fly 7:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m.
With Mauiva AirCruise, you can get a fresh perspective of Orlando's theme parks and Las Vegas's flashing lights—from high overhead in an airplane. Those landmarks are just a small part of each of their flagship tours, the Western Wonder experience and the All-American East experience. On the Western Wonder, for example, you'll jetset between Yosemite National Park, the Grand Canyon, and other iconic destinations on a private plane. At each place, you'll touch down in private terminals and have time for sightseeing and photos (tours and meals cost extra). These longer hop-on/hop-off air cruises often include meals and nightly hotel accommodations. Each flight is led by an FAA-certified pilot.
Beyond the tours, Mauiva also operates smaller-scale plane trips and lessons as part of their Air Tours division. See the sun cast brilliant colors over the Atlantic Ocean during a sunset tour, or catch a dazzling aerial light display in one of the fireworks flights. In the Captain's Package, you can climb into the cockpit with an FAA-certified instructor, helping them to navigate the plane and identify airborne superheroes.
