Pilots are the cowboys of the air, roaming the wide-open skies and herding children’s runaway balloons. Giddy up, up, and away with today’s Groupon: for $73, you get an introductory flight lesson from Alpha Zulu LLC (a $146.50 total value) in South St. Paul. The flight lesson includes:

  • 1.5 hours with a certified instructor (a $67.50 value)
  • One hour of in-flight time (a $79 value)<p>

Instructed by a decorated pilot and FAA Safety Team Representative, Alpha Zulu LLC students pitch the easy-to-fly Beechcraft Skipper toward the stratosphere during one-hour introductory flights. Over a 30-minute informational session prior to the flight, the instructor—author of a comprehensive aircraft-maintenance guide—familiarizes yearling cloud hoppers with control panels, preflight checks, and the proper etiquette for conversing with eagles. During the ensuing hour, customers gaze down at a shrinking Fleming Field as they adjust the rudder and shift altimeter needles under their own control. Once landing gear is safely back in the grips of the runway, students take home a video recording of their flight, which may be used to review their lesson or to terrify an acrophobic VCR.
