Instructor Roy Beisswenger guides each novice flyer on a tandem ride, manning the powered parachute as the student witnesses his techniques and takes in the sweeping sights below. Groupon holders must call Easy Flight to schedule an appointment.

Easy Flight

Unlike most flight-training schools that teach students how to fly planes, Easy Flight instructs clients on how to command open-air powered parachutes. These wheeled aircraft are equipped with a small motor and a multihued parachute that whisk flyers along on leisurely jaunts. Once in the air, pilots soar along closer to the ground than they would in an airplane, which gives them a more detailed view of the scenery below and the ability to distinguish a fresh buzz cut on a passing bird.
