The human obsession with flight stems from a refusal to accept limitations and an intense desire to find out which of your neighbors secretly have pools. Put your eyes in the skies with this Groupon.
$74 for a Scenic Discovery Flight ($199 Value)
Discovery flights begin at North Perry Airport, where instructors give students individual preflight ground briefing and instruction before heading to the aircraft for additional instruction and a walk around. From there, instructors and students take to the sky for flight time and a scenic ride over the Fort Lauderdale area. Flights conclude with a postflight briefing and ground instruction as well as a chat about additional flight-training programs the school provides. This Groupon also gifts students with a six-month subscription to Flight Training magazine and a six-month membership to the Aircraft Owners and Pilot Association.
ATA Flight School
ATA Flight School’s trusty fleet of Cessna aircrafts provides students with a way to get hands-on experience to earn their private-pilot certification or instrument ratings. Based out of North Perry General Aviation Airport, the FAA-approved professional flight school employs a staff of certified flight instructors who coach aspiring aviators along the way and give pep talks to airplanes prior to liftoff. ATA Flight School also operates Miami Flightseeing, which whisks passengers aloft for tours including The Grand Miami Tour, which flies high over 80 miles of beaches and Downtown Miami, and The Miami Sunset Tour, which reveals beautiful views of the sun as it sets over the Miami skyline.
