Free falling without a parachute is generally inadvisable outside the secure confines of an antigravity machine or marshmallow-filled quarry. Eschew stomach-churning plummets for gentle glides with today’s Groupon: for $125, you get a 40- to 50-minute glider ride from 5,280 feet for one from Miami Gliders in Homestead (a $190 value).
Miami Gliders’ crackerjack aviators bring a wealth of experience to an air-tripping array of glider rides in addition to other airborne adventures. During 40- to 50-sky-spanning minutes, gliders traverse a lush panorama of Florida’s scenic vistas as they gently descend from an Icarus-melting height of 5,280 feet. Guided by a skilled pilot who melds an airy blend of telekinesis and earthly physics to keep afloat, passengers indulge peepers with VIP views of the Everglades, Redlands, and Biscayne National Park. Bring your own camera or take advantage of the aircraft's recording device, which grants guests striking snapshots from the outside of the glider, capturing the area’s picturesque landscapes and Dadaist crop signs.
