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 $85, you get one VIP Hoover Dam night-flight tour, a souvenir, and a personal bottle of champagne 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 Hoover Dam VIP night-flight tour, guests receive complimentary shuttle service to and from their choice of major Las Vegas Strip hotels, arriving at 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 the dazzling water-retention abilities of the Hoover Dam, with passengers seeing it all from their own window seat. After the excursion, pilots deliver guests back to the airport to explore the hangar's amenities and bookshelves for hidden passages to secret airship-building laboratories.
Tour-goers receive a souvenir T-shirt, a beer, or a coffee mug to commemorate their experience (a $20 value), plus a personal-size bottle of champagne to take home or drink at the hangar.
