Every time a bell rings, an airplane pilot laughs at the implausibility of the television show Wings. Experience the friendly skies from the air instead of your TV set with today's Groupon: for $74, you get a scenic 30-minute discovery flight for two (a $149 value) from Bob Miller Flight Training, taking off daily from Buffalo-Lancaster Regional Airport in Lancaster.
Bob Miller Flight Training is committed to launching amateur aviators into the wild blue yonder. Discovery flights seat students next to certified sky captains for a firsthand experience piloting a lofted airship without the hassle of negotiating a non-aggression pact with the ground beforehand—all while a second passenger enjoys a scenic tour in back. After taking the throttle, novices work out a personal flight plan to anywhere within 25 miles of the airport, an opportunity for the person along for the ride to photograph the glorious landscapes of the nearby Lake Erie waterfront or to best that local corn maze once and for all. Bob Miller Flight Training planes boast first-class amenities, including leather seats and XM satellite radio, making discovery flights ideal for memorable first dates or for use in dramatic unveiling ceremonies.
Bob Miller Flight Training is an FAA-approved Part 141 flight school, and all of its aircraft are less than 3 years old and equipped with computerized weather and terrain info, traffic-avoidance technology, and a digital duck translator to verbally ream those sky-hogging flocks. Due to safety regulations, the combined weight of passengers (instructor excluded) may not exceed 370 pounds, and a reservation to fly is required 48 hours in advance.
