For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, which is why every time a human attempts to fly, a bird attempts to drive a stick shift. Engage in one of the primary mandates of physics with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a sightseeing discovery flight for two from Eagle Aviation (a $219.45 value, including tax and fees).
The seasoned pilots of Eagle Aviation soar duos above picturesque sights in Piper Warrior airplanes during roughly 40-minute custom sky jaunts. Before takeoff, the experienced captain explains the details of the upcoming flight as well as the ins and outs of the aircraft, pointing out its various throttles and ticklish spots. Twosomes can request a flight over the brightly lit downtown skyline in the evening or peruse the Ohio River in the daylight from thousands of feet above. After takeoff and before landing, passengers have a chance to fly the plane themselves, practicing gentle dips or swinging by fruit trees to pick a healthy snack.
From its site on Bowman Field, Eagle Aviation lets humans defy gravity by slicing through the skies in a Piper Warrior airplane. Though experienced pilots can rent the aircraft for themselves, instructors escort novices in supervised trips to the clouds, sharing tips on taking off, landing, and avoiding midair collisions with basketball players.
