Pilots are the cowboys of the air, roaming the wide-open skies and herding children's runaway balloons. Giddy up, up, and away with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $129 for a 1.5-hour private flight experience for one (a $270 value)
- $199 for a 2-hour flight experience for two (a $517.50 value)
With both options, amateur pilots receive 30 minutes of instruction on the ground before taking flight. Students and instructors then fly toward Long Island Sound, Jones Beach State Park, or Fire Island. Private flights afford up to an hour of experience in the air, and two-person packages give each participant about 45 minutes behind the yoke. Landing fees are included, and each participant also receives a souvenir T-shirt, a log book, a rental headset, and a six-month flight-training-magazine subscription.
