Flying is a lot like having a staring contest: even with utter concentration, you’ll never be better at it than birds. Go toe-to-beak with our winged companions with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a one-hour lesson at Burlington Aviation (a $198 value).
An FAA-approved Part 141 flight school, Burlington Aviation educates adventure seekers on the intricacies of expeditions into the upper atmosphere. Experienced pilots replace classrooms with cockpits, guiding students through one-on-one in-flight instruction. Soak in the scenery at the controls of a Cessna C172SP plane with a fully digital Garmin G1000 cockpit while absorbing lessons on maintaining speed, controlling altitude, and avoiding collisions with untethered parade balloons. This hands-on lesson enables students to take the sticks under the watchful eye of their co-main-pilot, and because Burlington Aviation is located at a non-towered airport, pilots can maximize flight time without the hassle of taxiing and waiting for clearances.
Approved by the Federal Aviation Administration for flight instruction, Burlington Aviation helps aspiring aviators to take to the skies. The outfit rigorously cares for a fleet of six aircraft. Students can rent aircraft for logging aerial hours under the watchful eye of an experienced, professional flight instructor. Burlington Airport does not have a control tower, meaning students spend less time waiting on tower clearance to take off and land and more time trying to fly higher than a pet griffin.
