If you’re feeling frisky but don’t want to join the mile-high club the, um, brave way, you can book travel on Flamingo Air—one of few airlines that actually encourages human-made turbulence.
Newser.com recently spotted proof that you can actually have sex on an airplane and keep things above board. Well, behind a curtain in any case.
Doing the deed on an airplane the ol’ fashioned way means immense bravery and perfect timing. According to the report and the following Facebook post, Flamingo Air just needs about $500 and some of your time to make it all happen for you and your significant other.
Now, maybe both Newser and ourselves are a little behind the times because the Facebook post is a bit dated – landing in 2015, but Flamingo Air most certainly still has an ongoing website, which also boasts a flight school and sightseeing tours.
Within sightseeing is listed "Romantic Adventure."
It will run you $475 and is described as such: “Need an idea for a fun and romantic date night? Looking for a unique way to propose to your sweetheart? Look no further. With the Romantic Adventure you choose flight path and we provide you with a private romantic adventure complete with champagne and chocolates. Price includes 2 passengers.”
For that money, you get 60 minutes, which begs the question of what you do for 45 minutes when you are sitting there in awkward silence perfectly aware that the pilot knows exactly what you did.
Newser spoke with President and CEO David MacDonald who explained the kind of people that take these tours.
The report states: “Today, he says thousands of surprisingly ‘straight-laced’ couples have paid for private, hour-long ‘flights of fancy’ on Flamingo.” The report also points to a 2014 Maxim article that paints quite the ridiculous picture.

For instance, you get down to business at about 5,000 feet, which really puts a damper on proclaiming this is the mile-high club with a straight face.
There is also the little hiccup of privacy delivered by all of one curtain between you and the pilot. In any case, it certainly beats attempting to sneak two people into the tiny and unromantic boxes they call lavatories on actual planes – especially if you are the timid sort.
Now remember, if this planes-a-rocking then ... well, it may be normal turbulence, fasten your seatbelts.
