What You'll Get


Early man's attempts at flying included sewing feathers onto his arms or trying to harpoon a passing comet. Learn to fly the new-fashioned way with this Groupon.

$149 for a Discovery Helicopter Flying Lesson ($300 Value)

  • 30 minutes with an instructor and a session in a Flyit helicopter flight simulator
  • Up to 30 minutes of flight time in an R22 helicopter

First, strap yourself into the seat of an FAA-approved helicopter flight simulator. A certified flight instructor teaches you basic flight maneuvers and specialty operations, such as instrument training, emergency procedures, and waving at passing clouds. Then, while you're in the pilot's seat of a Robinson R22 helicopter, the instructor coaches you through the takeoff, coastal flight, and landing processes from the passenger's seat. This approximately 60-minute discovery flight can be logged toward actual flight time for a full pilot's license, and each customer receives a keepsake photo of the adventure.

About Tampa Bay Aviation


White sand beaches spread out into the distance, running into the cerulean-blue sea, where seaweed and fish can be seen drifting below the surface. Tree-studded islands and winding sandbars pass underneath, and a white suspension bridge stretches across the horizon like a length of thread. Tampa Bay Aviation's visitors take in these elevated, panoramic views of the Florida coastline from the passenger’s seat or behind the controls of an airplane or helicopter.

Its team of certified flight instructors and experienced commercial pilots operates a fleet of Cessna 172 and Piper Cherokee planes, Robinson R22 helicopters, and an FAA-approved helicopter simulator. During flight experiences and pilot-training programs, they let clients take the aircraft's controls without having to first duel the ghosts of the Wright brothers. They also take clients skyward for aerial surveys and photography sessions.
