The human obsession with flight stems from a refusal to accept limitations and an intense desire to finally move out of gravity's basement. Claim your own airspace with today's Groupon: for $110, you get a 90-minute flight lesson from A-Cent Aviation (a $229 value).

The experienced, FAA-certified flight instructors at A-Cent Aviation teach flyers of all skill levels to pilot aircraft through clear Colorado skies during 90-minute flight lessons. Before manning the cockpit of a real aircraft, students acclimate themselves in a state-of-the-art flight simulator, learning the art of flying and the trick to packing overhead luggage compartments. Once simulated lessons are complete, burgeoning pilots and their mentors taxi a real plane down the runway and send it soaring with the push of the throttle. The private aircraft soars over Colorado Springs' lush green pines and white mountain peaks before guests glide planes safely back to solid ground. Guests younger than the age of 14 require the presence of a parent or a much older twin.

A-Cent Aviation

The experienced, Federal Aviation Administration–certified flight instructors at A-Cent Aviation use their aerial expertise to help new flyers learn to navigate the clear Colorado skies. An FAA-approved, category IV AATD, fully enclosed flight simulator offers 120 degree, high-resolution visuals and can be configured to teach students the controls and trick to packing overhead luggage compartments in 25 different models of aircraft. VA-approved courses offer instruction for manning everything from recreational and commercial planes, to single-engine aircraft, with an FAA-testing center on-site to test developing skills. A-Cent Aviation also plays matchmaker by maintaining a small fleet of new and used aircraft to pair with lonely pilots, while a pilot shop provides access to shelves stocked with study materials, cockpit supplies, and pterodactyl repellents.
