After ground instruction, climb behind the controls of a small plane. Learn to use the stick and rudder to maneuver the plane through takeoff, climbs, and straight-and-level flight, all with an FAA-certified flight instructor at your side. The second and third lessons incorporate steep turns, slower flight, and how to handle stalls. At their discretion, instructors may also demonstrate more advanced maneuvers and fly over students’ homes for aerial pictures. Membership with AeroDynamic Aviation allows students to continue into more in-depth lessons and purchase block airplane-rental time at reduced rates.

For those interested, the flying counts toward the FAA pilot-license requirements and the government’s secret coolness rating. Students who make deposits toward future lessons or materials during their Groupon visits will earn a 15% bonus on their account. Flyers may also bring along a second or third person to experience the flight ($20/person), subject to weight restrictions.

AeroDynamic Aviation

AeroDynamic Aviation co-owner and chief pilot Zdravko took his first flight at the ripe old age of 2 weeks. As his baby eyes looked out the window of the DC-3 airliner, watching the houses grow smaller and smaller and the clouds become his companions, the idea of flight bored itself into his mind. Zdravko has now racked up more than 7,000 flight hours—most of them as a flight instructor—and completed taildragger and acrobatics training with Amelia Reid, a pioneer of female flying and the 1960 founder of the location's original flight school.

Together with his fellow FAA-certified instructors, Zdravko shares his passion for flight via sport, private, commercial, and aerobatics training. The staff is dedicated to educating pilots on tailwheel aircraft and teaching true stick-and-rudder flying, which is much more reliable than using leather reins attached to each wing.
