From catapulting flaming soldiers over castle walls to sitting on active geysers, humans have long been fixated on flying through the air. Absorb the wonderment of flight with today’s Groupon: for $64, you get an aerobatic airplane ride from Specialized Helicopters in Watsonville (a $129 value).

Specialized Helicopters' professional pilots guide thrill-seekers on roundabout tours of the skies located above Monterey Bay during the 15-minute aerobatic airplane rides. The copilot seat affords passengers 360-degree views during a high-power takeoff and a smooth progression of loops, turns, and twists that could transform knuckle pigmentation from normal to clown makeup in a matter of seconds. While airborne, the plane makes diving runs of 3,000 feet and completes a giant 1,000-foot loop before sticking the landing back on earth. Passengers should arrive at the Specialized Helicopters base at least five minutes prior to their appointed takeoff.

Specialized Aviation

In addition to flight-training experiences and flight lessons, Specialized Aviation's professional pilots guide thrill-seekers on exhilarating scenic tours of the skies. The 20-minute helicopter whale-watching tour offers splendid views of marine life—including blue, humpback, and gray whales—from well above the water line in Monterey Bay.

Evan was awesome! He made us feel as if we already had known him. He asked us what we wanted to see and what we expected. He tried his best to get all of our wishes in one flight. I will definitely be back and absolutely recommend Specialized.
