I bought this for my boyfriend for his b-day, there was 2 to choose from, I opted for A&r aviation because it included a Syllabus and a photo after the lesson. We got neither of it!!! Don't buy this groupon from this company. What a bad experience.

Scott was a very nice guy and knew his stuff, he answered all of the questions we had, this is the good feedback. The appointment itself started off bad when he had to be called in for my appointment time so we didn't actually start until 30 minutes late. He told me that he didn't even know I had an appointment (his partner was supposed to be with me and he was supposed to reschedule his appointments which never happened). I took the day off of work so I could take my son to fly so even if he would've called to reschedule, it wouldn't have worked. Other than the flight time and answering our questions, nothing else on the Groupon was given (shirt, syllabus). He seemed very unorganized.

Fantastic experience! My 12 year old said it was the best birthday ever! It was educational and a thrill. Pilot Scott was great teacher and I felt very comfortable.

From Our Editors

The instructors at A&R Aviation showcase the open skies above Oakland Troy Airport as students enjoy casual discovery flights or train to earn a pilot’s license. During instructional flights, instructors place pupils in front of the steering column of a pair of Cessna aircraft—models 150 and 172. The flying machines are kept up to date by an FAA-certified maintenance professional, allowing the student to focus on real world training scenarios without fearing real world technical difficulties, like when nacho cheese is accidentally spilled all over the cockpit.

When A&R's pilots aren't teaching others how to fly, they can be found ferrying people through the skies on sightseeing expeditions. On romantic flights, which showcase the dazzling views of the Detroit skyline at night, couples sip sparkling cider and nibble on chocolates among a sea of rose petals.
