According to the latest census, flying is the third most common type of dream, beaten only by dreams of becoming a millionaire and dreams of piloting a plane made out of $100 bills. Take flight with today's Groupon: for $79, you get a 45-minute introductory flight lesson or sky ride from Blue Sky Flight in Stratford (a $160 value).

At the Sikorsky Memorial Airport, piloting pupils receive preflight training before jumping into their atmospheric steed to explore the Connecticut sky. During the 45-minute flight, fliers learn the basics of operating a Grumman Tiger aircraft and spotting ant-size Waldos from hundreds of feet above society. Toward the end of the lesson, students can take the controls to steer their gravity-defying vessel over the treetops and rolling hills of the countryside under the guidance of a flight instructor. For those who prefer a back-seat flight companion, this Groupon can accomodate one additional flier along for the glide.
