There are few things as liberating as being able to fly, which is why humans invented helicopters and why penguins constantly try to sabotage them by eating their propellers. Feel the freedom of the skies with this Groupon.

$195 for a Two-Hour Helicopter Flight Lesson for One ($399 Value)

To launch their flight experience, students orient themselves to the mechanics and controls of the helicopter during ground school and simulator training. They then take to the skies with an FAA-certified instructor, flying over the Los Angeles area and peeping views of sites such as the Santa Monica mountains and Lake Balboa. An HD video commemorates the flight as does a photo package and a certificate of completion. Students leave with flight-training manuals and a pilot logbook, in which lies evidence of their first recorded flight and first sky-borne drag-race victory against a flock of seagulls.

Rotor F/X LLC

Living up to their slogan "Excellence in Aviation," Rotor F/X runs the gamut of flight-related services by selling and repairing rotorcraft, in addition to offering flight training, transportation, and quick aerial tours of the Los Angeles area. As a prop company, Rotor F/X has a reputation of building believable cockpit mockups, aviation sets, and scale models of planes and helicopters. As a testament to their ability to enhance stunts, effects, and camera shots with their replicas, the crew of the History Channel's Modern Marvels asked them to construct a experimental helicopter that not only lifts up into the air, but travels back in time to prevent the original Star Trek from being canceled.
