Being friends with a penguin can be complicated, since you have to politely wait until he leaves the room to remove that uncomfortable tuxedo and make any mention of flying. Soar over the heads of flightless birds in style with today's Groupon to Ace Pilot Training, based at the Lehigh Valley International Airport. Choose between the following options:

The highly skilled flight instructors at Ace Pilot Training mold ground walkers into soaring eagles by carefully navigating students though the looping alleyways of aeronautics. The stratospheric tutors at Ace aid and abet the breach of gravity's 27 laws in your choice of getaway vehicles: a streamlined propeller plane or wind-whipping whirlybird. Before ascending, each student spends one hour in a flight simulator to become acquainted with the nooks, crannies, buttons, throttles, and knobs in a virtual cockpit free of crying babies and weeping copilots. After mastering the virtual clouds, students are ready for 30 minutes of ground training, where they’ll kick the tires before strapping themselves into sky saddles. Those who opt for an airplane education get 45 minutes in the air, and helicopter pupils can hover for about 29 minutes. Students who choose the airplane option are allowed to bring a friend or trusting stranger as a passenger on their first flight. With stellar instruction, onsite air-traffic control, and GPS-equipped aircraft, rookie pilots can rest assured that they won’t stray off course or accidentally collide with flying pies.

Ace Pilot Training

Ace Pilot Training's flight instructors prepare students for private licenses and commercial licenses for any vehicle capable of lifting itself off the ground. They combine on-the-ground classroom instruction with flight simulators emulating the latest cockpits, before putting students behind the controls of an actual small plane or helicopter. Students attend multi-class courses that result in various levels of certification for specific classes of aircraft.
