I never knew they were there or what they had to offer. I would definitely consider doing something with them in the future.

What You'll Get

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 $50, you get a discovery flight experience from Eagle Aircraft in Valparaiso, Indiana (a $99 value).

The discovery flight experience puts an air enthusiast in the boots of a real pilot, going step-by-step through the process of sock choice, foot insertion, boot lacing, and flying a plane. The lesson starts with instruction on the basics of plane operation—controls, the physics of flight, climbing, descending, takeoff, letdown, communication with clouds—before students do a preflight inspection of a Cessna 172 Skyhawk SP or Cessna 162 Skycatcher and soar into the air to take the controls for 15–20 minutes of logable flight time. Eagle Aircraft's instructors specialize in professional flight training, so this experience qualifies as a beginner's flight lesson.
