There are few freedoms as liberating as being able to fly, which is why humans spent millennia inventing the airplane and why penguins are so very, very bitter. Exceed evolutionary shortcomings with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a Discovery Flight Lesson from ATA Flight School in Pembroke Pines (a $199 value).
ATA Flight School's flock of skilled pilots safely usher tender-footed aeronauts skyward during one-hour discovery flight lessons. Aviators first introduce students to either a Cessna 172 or 150 on the ground before propellers buzz to life like supercharged clown bowties and pupils and instructors take to the sky for 30–45 minutes. While in flight, students get hands-on experience learning various airborne maneuvers including climbs, turns, and beginner-friendly barrel rolls. Teachers then follow it all up with a postflight briefing and additional ground instruction. Today's Groupon also includes a six-month subscription to Flight Training magazine, as well as a six-month membership to Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association for those who wish to continue pursuing their pilots' licenses or attempting to high-five birds.
