The human obsession with flight stems from a refusal to accept limitations and an intense desire to finally move out of gravity's basement. Claim your own airspace with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a three-hour Discovery flight package at Box Aviation, Inc. (a $199.99 value). The Discovery package includes:

  • A flight lesson
  • A certificate
  • A T-shirt

Helmed by an expert aviator with a lifelong passion for the sky, Box Aviation grooms aspiring pilots for flight in its fleet of small aircraft. The three-hour Discovery package, which includes up to 60 minutes of flight time, commences on the ground with a 30-minute preflight briefing and a 60-minute tutorial from a licensed flight instructor before air-traffic controllers signal that the sky is free of UFOs and gathering balloon storms. Securely seated next to an ace aerialist a few hundred feet above the ground, passengers learn the basics of flight as they steer the cloud-clipper over some of the area’s most stunning landscapes.

A 30-minute debriefing caps off each voyage, and new pilots receive a hearty handshake, T-shirt, and certificate upon completion, finally providing a sense of closure to those whose paper airplanes knew nothing but nosedives. Students seeking an in-flight cheering section can invite a guest along for an additional cost (up to $50, depending on weight).

Box Aviation

The seed of flight was planted when Erik Box was still a boy and his grandfather Lindbergh carved him a propeller from wood. Today, Box Aviation is the natural outgrowth of that lifelong love, giving Erik the chance to fulfill his passion each day. Stationed at Montgomery Aviation, the outfit provides fellow enthusiasts with services such as flight training, rental aircraft, and maintenance for personally owned planes. Newcomers to the field can get a taste of the open skies via a discovery flight, which places them next to an expert pilot for short loops through Montgomery airspace.
