Lumanair Aviation Services has given northeastern Illinois passage to the heavens for more than 45 years. Take your first step toward establishing aerial residency with an introductory flight lesson, which begins with a brief walkthrough of the plane and continues with the basics of engine starting, taxiing, taking off, and landing. Students have the opportunity to control and fly the plane and can even bring along a friend to enjoy the ride and keep lookout for angry red barons. Customers who prefer to sit and survey can take advantage of the skyline tour, a round-trip flight to the Chicago skyline that can be shared with up to two friends. During the 90-minute journey, the pilot will point out interesting landmarks and even allow the person sitting in front to briefly pilot the plane while the other two passengers make fighter-jet noises.
