Before helicopters, the only way to catch a lofty glimpse of town was via catapult, which often left people stranded atop leafy redwoods and surly giraffes. Ensure yourself an aerial exit strategy with today’s Groupon: for $149, you get a 55-minute private helicopter-flying lesson, from Timberview Helicopters (a $299 value). Flights take off from Northwest Richards Road in Kansas City and Johnson County Executive Airport in Olathe.

Embarking from one of two helipads in Kansas City or Olathe, Timberview Helicopters sends pilots-to-be hovering high above shimmering cityscapes, rolling hills, and scenic waterways for a 55-minute private lesson. After 30 minutes of ground instruction, aspiring aviators join a professional pilot in the cockpit of a late-model Robinson R44 heli-craft and ascend to his airborne paper route. During their 25-minute spin through the cloudscape, students get a chance to take the controls and actually fly the chopper. Accompanied by the gentle whirring of the rotor and the safe, expert guidance of the pilot, aerial explorers can admire the alluring polygon structures of urban Kansas City, the beauty of Olathe's verdant hills, and the grace of high-perching ostriches desperately mining for sky gold.

Timberview Helicopters

The professional pilots at Timberview Helicopters ferry passengers high into the clouds aboard a sky-scraping whirlybird during flight tours through Destin and Kansas City. Having chartered flights for National Geographic and the Travel Channel, these pilots expertly navigate planes toward sweeping, picturesque views, allowing sightseers to steal glances of Fort Walton Beach, downtown Kansas City, and Key West's ocean views from a perspective normally reserved for birds and astronauts with binoculars. Additionally, their high-definition videos grant guests a lasting commemoration of their in-flight experience. When they're not chartering tours, they teach budding pilots the gravity-defying tricks of their trade through pilot training and lug precious shipments from port to port with their cargo-lifting services
