Before the Wright brothers, mankind strived for less lofty transportation goals, such as fuel-efficient wagons and steam-powered walking pantaloons. Experience an aviation renaissance with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get a scenic flight above Greensboro for two people from Bethany Aviation (a $200 value).
The flight crew at Bethany Aviation ascends in Piper Cherokee and Piper Warrior II planes to introduce patrons to the joys of aviation. During a 30-minute flight for two people, aspiring aviators can choose to undertake flight lessons, and casual patrons can simply admire the sprawling view of Greensboro and surrounding areas. The flight package also includes a tour of the airport facilities at Piedmont Triad International Airport, during which visitors explore the pilot lounge and look around the flight-planning room before receiving a photo of themselves with the aircraft to wear in a locket along with their picture of themselves with a toaster.
