What You'll Get
Flying is a lot like having a staring contest: even with utter concentration, you’ll never be better at it than birds. Go toe-to-beak with our winged companions with today's Groupon: for $95, you get a one-hour Discovery Flight lesson from Eagle Flyers, a flight school and aircraft-rental company based out of the Indianapolis Executive Airport in Zionsville (a $188 value).
Led by experienced, FAA-certified pilots, Eagle Flyers’ Discovery Flight lessons teach aspiring cloud climbers (aged 16 and older) the basics of airplane operation and safety. Conducted in a Cessna Skyhawk airplane, the lesson begins with a ground-based procedures training session and preflight check before taking to the upper atmosphere for approximately 45 minutes of flight.
While airborne you'll have the opportunity to take control of the craft under your instructor's careful supervision, practicing the basics of turning, climbing, and mid-air parallel parking.
Ideal for either the casual flier hoping to enjoy sublime views usually reserved for birds and human cannonballs or for budding pilots taking their first step toward a flying license, the Discovery Flight offers a safe and supportive first-time excursion. Check out this video to get a glimpse of what your Discovery Flight will be like before nabbing today’s cloud-kissing Groupon.
