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.

$89 for an Introductory Flight Lesson ($197 Value)

After receiving a tour of the facility and aircraft, students sit down for approximately 30 minutes of ground school. Pre-flight tutelage covers aircraft systems, the four fundamentals of flight, and pre-flight processes. Students then take to the air for 30 minutes of flying time and training with an instructor. Students also receive a booklet outlining pilot training, introductory aerodynamics, and advanced training.

Aerowood Aviation

As a boy, Aerowood Aviation president Roger Wood idolized planes, trading labor for rides at his local airport. After his first ultralight flight in a muddy cow pasture at age 13, he was hooked. He eventually sought out his pilot license and bought his own Cessna. Roger now shares his passion and 3,800+ hours of flight experience with aspiring pilots looking to achieve their own childhood dreams. Students work toward a sport or private flight certification by burrowing their way through a syllabus in aerodynamics and a structured training program. A staff of seasoned pilots lead each ascent above the horizon line, while certified pilots can rent aircraft at an hourly rate.

Customer Reviews

I bought a flight lesson as a gift and they made it very easy to use. The recipient loved it and we all had a great time being included.

Great experience. Recommend.

Wes was the instructor for my first flight lesson. He took his time to answer all of my questions and still presented a very informative tutorial on what a pilot needs to do & know to get off the ground. Wes clearly loves being a pilot and his enthusiasm shines through. Aerowood Aviation is a smooth and accomodating operation. I recommmend this school for other aspiring aviators.
