Operating a plane’s control panel is like entering a middle-school cafeteria: daunting at first, but not so bad once you know not to wear mittens. Fly the socially adept skies with this Groupon.
$99 for a One-Hour Flying Lesson (Up to $199 Value)
Students take the controls of a Diamond or Cessna aircraft, where they receive one-on-one instruction about flight rules and regulations and also study takeoffs, midflight turns, and landings. They may bring one guest if they wish, who can observe but won’t actually fly the plane. While the student must be at least 14, the guest may be any age.
Falcon Aviation Academy
Both career-minded future professional pilots and amateur aviation hobbyists can get something out of attending Falcon Aviation Academy; the school’s training programs allow learners to get their feet wet over the course of hours or study intensively over the course of weeks. Lessons show learners how to fly in clear weather, maneuver an aircraft with multiple engines, meet the standards required of commercial pilots, or become flight instructors themselves.
