What You'll Get
Once certified, professional pilots gain entry to several aviator-only speakeasies, where they have access to diabolical weather-controlling machines and a direct line to Alex Trebek, among other perks. Take the first step toward ensuring perpetual rainclouds over your enemies with today's Groupon: for $125, you get a one-hour flight lesson with Coast Flight Training, located at Montgomery Field.
Before escaping the harsh limitations of gravity, pupil pilots will receive a 30-minute pre-flight briefing to prepare for the departure. Once the basics are absorbed, you'll take off for 30 minutes' worth of cruising the friendly skies in the speedy, slick Cirrus aircraft, which is far more impressive than your neighbor's flame-painted mini-van. Feel like an honorary professional while you handle the takeoff, the en-route navigation, and the smooth, agreeable landing. Afterward, amateur helmspersons will receive a post-flight debriefing from their instructor, who'll analyze the excursion through the air and politely request that you refrain from shrieking "Warp four, Mr. Sulu!" during the next lesson.
Those worried about their safety while training can rest assured with a certified flight instructor inspecting every second of the flight. On top of that, the Cirrus aircraft features a parachute that will gently and securely ease the plane back to the ground in case of an emergency. The introductory session enables prospective pilots to safely and confidently take the first step toward realizing a lifelong dream of becoming a skywriter.
