$139 for a Two-Hour Flight Adventure ($250 Value)
The two-hour adventure—an aviation-themed gift for fathers and graduates—is broken down into 15 minutes of instruction on the ground, 45 minutes with the flight simulator, and 60 minutes of flight aboard a training aircraft, such as a Cessna 152 or a BRM Aero Bristell. During the flying portion, students will be able to take over the controls from the certified flight instructor as the pair soars high above Long Island. Once safely back on the ground, the student will receive a logbook to document the flight, a subscription to Flight Training magazine, and a $100 voucher toward school enrollment, as well as a commemorative photograph to be emailed at a later time.
