Airplanes are thrilling to ride, especially when they’re shredding through vengeful, murderous clouds. Reach for the sky with this Groupon.
$199 for a 30-Minute Thrill Ride on a Stunt Plane ($399 Value)
Visitors climb aboard a Pitts S-2B biplane for a half hour of high-G excitement as the pilot performs breathtaking air-show maneuvers. Though not included with this Groupon, a recording of the flight will be available for purchase afterward ($45).
Aboard his trusty, bright-red Pitts S-2B biplane, Jordan Schultz, the primary flight instructor at USA Aerobatics, blows loop-de-looping wind beneath the wings of aspiring pilots and whisks thrill seekers into the wide blue yonder for 30-minute heart-pounding rides. The center's menu of services also occupies sky-curious visitors with advanced aerobatics classes, safety training, diagnostics for old or new biplanes, and philosophical discussions on why clouds shape themselves like animals. Thanks to the consistently fine weather of the Texas Hill Country, Jordan and his sturdy craft can keep on flying pretty much all year round.
