What You'll Get
Flying is the only way to get close enough to a cloud to milk it or to visit your secret sky family. Bolster the bond earthly loved ones just don't understand with today's Groupon: for $78, you get a ground lesson, a 30-minute introductory flight, and a logbook for one person from Airwork LLC, based at Auburn Municipal Airport (a $156 total value).
Airwork LLC's experienced flight instructors equip budding aeronauts with the skills and techniques necessary to professionally or recreationally master airplane aviation. Ensconced in a Cessna 172 airplane, patrons receive a 30-minute private ground lesson (a $45 value) catered to their individual high-gliding goals. Seasoned navigators pepper first-time fliers with facts about aircraft-specific systems and the basics of sky sailing, such as why planes stay airborne and how to evade a cloud kraken. Boasting an impressive training safety record, practiced captains then hoist aeronauts for 30 minutes of airborne action (a $74 value), during which students can briefly take the controls. Soar over the sights while honing technical know-how during an informative introductory journey. Students can fly toward their favorite MAS*H location, or float above a pilot-picked spread of majestic rivers, mountains, and meadows before returning to terrestrial shores. Airwork boasts flexible scheduling, with classes available seven days a week, and throws in a logbook (a $37 value), allowing students to log the flight time toward the acquisition of a pilot's license.

About Airwork LLC
A Sikorsky 300C training helicopter and fleet of Cessna 172 airplanes lift new aviators into the air during Airwork LLC's flight-training classes for both commercial and private pilots. Experienced instructors lead introductory flights that combine on-the-ground lessons with assisted flies, allowing students to get their wings wet as they learn a new skill that may someday translate into a career as an aerial photographer, movie stuntman, or raincloud repairman. Students keep track of their progress toward licensure in pilot logbooks, and Airwork also maintains a comprehensive online-training library with important documents and handbooks for both helicopter and airplane training.
