Every time a bell rings, an airplane pilot laughs at the implausibility of the television show Wings. Experience the friendly skies from the air instead of your TV set with today's Groupon: for $99, you get your choice of either a discovery airplane or discovery helicopter flight at Air Orlando Aviation (up to a $291 value).

Air Orlando Aviation is equipped with more than 20 vessels and a flock of experienced teachers to help flight enthusiasts chase their dreams on or off the ground. Under the supervision of an FAA certified flight instructor, trainees can take to the skies in a brand new Cessna 172 standard training aircraft or a sleek chopper to seek the thrills that only defying gravity and gelatin bodysurfing can provide. During the airplane lesson, the student and an optional guest are greeted with a 15-minute Q&A session followed by 45 minutes aloft, with the person seated in front controlling the craft for a portion of the flight. The helicopter lesson also begins with a 15-minute Q&A, but guests are asked to watch from the ground as students soar for 30 minutes while taking control of the blades. Both sessions end with a 15-minute debrief to discuss the lesson, aeronautical philosophy, and local pigeon gossip.
