Although the Wright brothers successfully flew the first airplane in 1903, their triumph quickly turned to tragedy when Orville crashed into the moon and was devoured by giant moon-worms. Avoid the follies of first-time aviators with today’s Groupon: for $73, you get one hour of premium flight instruction (a $145.73 value, including tax) at Capital City Jet Center at Bolton Field. This lesson counts as an hour of credit for those who plan to pursue a private pilot’s license, and no initiation fees or monthly fees will be charged if you continue to pursue a private pilot's license.
Though just one of its many aviation and aircraft services, Capital City Jet Center's flight training catapults customers through yonder blue with one hour of premium flight instruction in a Cessna 172 Skyhawk. After getting a 30-minute lesson from a certified flight instructor, customers will take to the skies for a full hour’s worth of climbing through clouds, cruising at lofty altitudes, and barrel-rolling away from hostile TIE fighters. The flight training package comes with a personal log book to record every intense detail of your first session and/or any short story ideas that occur to you mid-flight.
Flight-enthusiastic, FAA certified mechanics make up Capital City's on-site maintenance department, ensuring that its air-karts are kept in top gliding condition—and even exceeding the FAA’s own requirements by adding a 50-hour service inspection. Students are welcome to bring along one friend for the ride for free; all others will be expected to pony up gas money and bring enough non-alcoholic malt beverages and potato salad for everybody. Call ahead to schedule your flight class at Capital City Jet Center.
