Airplanes combine the speed of a cheetah, the grace of a gazelle, and the flying ability of a cheetah and gazelle strapped to a jetpack. Soar like predator and prey partners with today's Groupon: for $75, you get one VIP night flight tour plus two drinks from Vegas 500 Air Tours at the Henderson Executive Airport (a $169 total value).
The experienced pilots at Vegas 500 Air Tours guide passengers over lush landscapes in planes equipped with high wings for unobstructed views and comfortable seating for premium enjoyment. For the VIP night flight tour, guests receive complimentary shuttle service from their choice of major Las Vegas Strip hotels to and from a private, 7,000-square-foot aircraft hangar and lounge at Henderson Executive Airport for an evening of dancing and sightseeing. Throughout the four-hour event, sky sherpas lead approximately 30-minute flights that showcase the sparkling lights of the strip and dazzling water-retention abilities of the Hoover Dam. After the excursion, pilots deliver guests back to the airport to explore the hangar's amenities and bookshelves for hidden passages to secret dirigible-building laboratories.
Tour-goers enjoy two drinks (a $20 value) and a complimentary glass of wine or champagne to balance tongue surfaces crumpled by barometric pressure changes, and the shuffleboard table busies limbs with triangular scoring zones. The space also boasts an aviation museum to quench historical curiosities. Though not included in the price of the Groupon, an optional gourmet meal featuring a filet mignon, seafood, or vegetarian entree is offered for an additional $30 per person in the airport hangar pre- or post-flight.
Sky Combat Ace
Sky Combat Ace gives customers the thrill of a lifetime by pairing them with real fighter pilots for adrenaline-filled flight experiences that range from a full-motion flight simulation to an aerial dogfight where they man the controls of a real Extra 330LC or Texan T6 warcraft. All skybound guests don parachutes prior to takeoff, and pilots maintain constant communication with them during the flight—checking in to make sure they're relaxed, comfortable, and aren't aging prematurely due to g-forces. After touching back down, guests can calm their racing hearts with a stroll through the SCA Heritage Museum.
