Although this was not my first time flying in small, large commercial and Millitary aircrafts, I must tell you that it as GREAT. The person that was my trainer and co-pilot, Leighan, was just super. She gave me clear and complete instruction and to top it off, she was very pleasant in doing she. The air ship we used was a 1947 something or other and given the fact that that was the same year I was born, I only wish I ran that good and Im in pretty good shape for my age. I would recommend Above Alaska Aviation and have already done so. I do hope I have a chance to fly with them again. Leighan, are you up for it???

What You'll Get

There are few things as liberating as being able to fly, which is why humans invented airplanes and why penguins constantly try to sabotage them by climbing into their jet engines. Feel the freedom of the skies with this Groupon.

About Above Alaska Aviation

Over sweeping evergreen pine forests and snow-capped mountains, the pilots from Above Alaska Aviation's FAR flight school hone their craft. FAA-certified instructors coach students in a range of specialized flight training in a fleet of 7EC Champ aircraft, as well as a PA-18 Super Cub and Cessna 180B. They train private pilot students in tailwheel aircraft from start to finish, tailwheel endorsements, and single-engine sea float ratings on the mountain lakes of Susitna Valley. Students learn the basics of flying tail-wheel aircraft—planes with landing gear on the tail—to hone skill sets, enhance their understanding of flight safety, and help them feel superior to carrier pigeons. When not teaching flight, bush pilots ferry passengers to remote wilderness areas where they can hike, fish, or hunt with rifles and bows.
