While much of the action in Grand Theft Auto Online takes place on the ground, this week players can take to the skies to reap special benefits and make the most of the bonuses on offer this week. All sorts of activities pay out more than usual, and there are freebies and discounts in store as well.
Brush up on your piloting skills fast, because being a top gun will lead to riches all week. The Stockpile Adversary Mode is paying out triple GTA$ and RP, so grab your wingmen and capture those aerial flags. If this particular mode isn't your cup of tea, Air Cargo Sales and all missions from the San Andreas Flight School are dealing out double rewards through the 15th of July.

This week has something for you if you've been groundbound until now and are only just spreading your virtual wings, too. The Nagasaki Ultralight is free, allowing you to grab a beginner aircraft. You won't be pulling hairpin turns or launching airstrikes against rivals with this, but it is perfect for your first sorties into the sky. It is a particularly great way to explore and experience the vast world of Los Santos and Blaine County if you want some peace and calm instead of explosive action.
For players who prefer solid ground under your feet, head to the Diamond Casino & Resort instead of the nearest hangar. If you manage to win the vehicle prize on the Lucky Wheel, you'll walk - or drive, rather - away with a free Dewbauchee Vagner, which is overall the best car in GTA Online currently.
There are also a bunch of discounts on offer all week, many of which are related to the overall aerial theme. All Hangars, their related upgrades and garage properties are half price, while the FH-1 Hunter is 40% off. The LF-22 Starling, Nagasaki Bombushka and Western Rogue are also 40% off, while the Progen T20, Pegassi Osiris, Coil Rocket Voltic and Declasse Scramjet are 30% off.
