Initially, we were rescheduled due to weather; however, they got us scheduled for the next week and it was a great experience. The Groupon tour is shorter than their other tours, but it gave us the experience we wanted. We had great views. Jenna, our guide, was informative and very friendly.

My CFI Grace did an amazing job! Very informative & friendly experience. I’ve been contemplating a change in career for the near future and being a helicopter pilot was something I always saw as a great job opportunity. This experience gives you a real look into how it actually “feels” to fly. I never realized the arm workout you get lol I recommend this team 100% and hope to attend their school soon!

About This Deal

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 voucher.

$99 for an Introductory Flight Experience ($205 Value)

During the 60-minute experience, a certified flight instructor first spends time teaching basic flight maneuvers and specialty operations, such as instrument training, emergency procedures, and waving at passing clouds. Students take to the air for up to 45 minutes at the controls of a Cessna 172 airplane as the instructor coaches them through the ins and outs of riding the skyway.

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.
