Anyone who claims that humans weren't meant to fly was likely pecked in their neonatal soft spot by the predator hawk that delivers all babies. Do what you were born to do with this Groupon: for $65, you get an introductory discovery-flight package from Pilot Journey (a $129.95 value), valid at participating flight schools, marked with the Discovery Flight logo.

The package includes:

  • Pilot Journey certificate good for one 30- to 40-minute flight lesson with instructor
  • Video seminar and 30-minute presentation
  • Instruction materials
  • Computer-based ground lessons

Pilot Journey connects FAA-certified flight instructors with hopeful pupils. The comprehensive introductory discovery-flight package helps fledgling flyers get their footing in the great blue yonder, bypassing the perils of ignorance and the feral pigeons that populate the stratosphere. Included in the package are two computer-based ground lessons, helping students get acquainted with aircraft procedures from the familiar comforts of earth. Two electronic flying handbooks reinforce this knowledge.

Once you've completed Pilot Journey's suggested preflying activities, you'll get to put your knowledge to the test during a 30- to 40-minute assisted-control flying lesson with an experienced instructor. After your exhilarating zigzag through the clouds, you'll return to the realities of earth, but quickly get lifted from the humdrums with a certificate of accomplishment. See a full list of the discovery-flight-package contents here.

Pilot Journey is a nucleus for top-notch aviation instruction nationwide that functions by connecting aspiring pilots to the best flight schools in their area. When you purchase a discovery-flight package through Pilot Journey, you receive a certificate that can be cashed in at any of the Pilot Journey's affiliated (and participating) locations, making it a convenient gift for far-flung friends as well as beloved-but-meddling family members you'd like to fling a bit farther.
