The whole family went to watch my 16 year old experience this. It was well worth it, cannot beat the price. We paid almost as much to eat lunch out. Now he has an experience that he will never forget. Thanks.

What You'll Get

Pilots are the cowboys of the air, roaming the wide-open skies and herding children's runaway balloons. Giddy up, up, and away with today's Groupon: for $57, you get a Discovery Flight package at Champion City Aviation in Springfield (a $113 total value). The Discovery Flight package includes:

  • A 45-minute ground instruction course (a $25 value)
  • A 30-minute introductory flight (a $75 value)
  • An endorsed logbook (a $13 value)

Nestled inside Hangar 1 at Springfield-Beckley Municipal Airport, Champion City Aviation lofts amateur aviators into the troposphere under the practiced guidance of certified pilots. Lessons commence with 45 minutes of ground instruction that incorporate essential preflight checks such as instrument orientation and renaming the plane in honor of your favorite uncle. Propellers sputter to a start on a single-prop Cessna N65673 as fledgling pilots practice takeoff and landing procedures, bookending 30 minutes of instructor-assisted cloud hopping wherein students do the flying themselves. After exiting the cockpit, pupils receive endorsed logbooks with entries containing key flight data, which marks the first step in attaining a pilot's license or astronaut learner’s permit.
