Dain was a very easy going pilot, he explained as much as I needed to know to feel safe and have fun. The aircraft was spotless and well maintained, it even had a ballistic parachute in case of emergencies. I had a wonderful fight we could see sharks in the water along with sting rays, pretty exciting ride.

What You'll Get


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

$129 for a Hands-On Ultralight Flight ($260 Value)

The flight adventure begins with a brief photo session, followed by a preflight-briefing on the Evolution Trike: an FAA-certified aircraft that resembles a motorcycle attached to a hang glider. Customers strap in before the instructor guides the aircraft through takeoff for a 30-minute flight. Once airborne, this "motorcycle of the sky" provides unobstructed views that allow passengers to spy marine life, including dolphins and manatees. Once over the beach, passengers can take over the controls to experience the full thrill of flying, or they can continue to relax and enjoy the ride. Finally, instructors land the aircraft, debrief passengers on their flight, and award them a certificate—which can count toward a pilot license. The entire adventure lasts approximately one hour.

About Sky Surfing Aviation


The FAA-certified flight instructors at Sky Surfing Aviation refer to their Delta Wing Trike aircrafts as "motorcycles of the sky." It's a fitting title, and not only because the aircrafts look like motorcycles that spent eight months inside steel cocoons. Just as bikers take scenic trips down country roads, aviators in Trikes take afternoon and evening drives through the sky. Fliers can skim white-sand beaches, soar high above the Skyway Bridge, or venture as far away as Fort Myers and the Everglades. With its open-air cockpit and hang-glider wings, the aircraft gives pilot and passenger unobstructed scenic views of Florida’s coastline. In fact, the sightlines are so clear that pilots often use the trike to spot and track marine life, including sea turtles and sharks.

While Sky Surfing Aviation's pilots will happily do all the flying during intro flights, first-time aviators are welcome to try the aircraft's intuitive controls. You simply need to grab hold of the large bar attached to the wings and shift your body weight. After the initial adventure, the instructors can train new fliers for solo flights and help them obtain pilot licenses. Aside from flight training, Sky Surfing Aviation provides sales and support for several types of light sport aircraft, such as trikes, airplanes, and gyroplanes.
