Flying is a lot like having a staring contest—even with utter concentration, you’ll never be better at it than birds. Go toe-to-beak with our winged companions with today's Groupon to Bafly.com, whose flights take off from the San Carlos Airport and the Palo Alto municipal airport. Bafly.com founder Arkady Erlikhman is a FAA-licensed flight instructor with nearly ten years of flying experience in more than a dozen aircrafts. Your two-hour flying lesson is one hour of ground school—in which you’ll learn the fundamentals of air travel—and one-hour of tranquilly cruise above the Bay Area. Arkady will teach basic controls, how to read instruments, and more. This is ideal opportunity to see if you should pursue dreams of soaring with the eagles or stick with living as a whale in the chilly Antarctic waters.
