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 $74, you get a one-hour flying lesson (a $149 value) at Falcon Aviation Academy, with three participating locations in Newnan, Atlanta, and Athens. This deal is not available at the Peachtree City Airport location.

The Falcon Aviation Academy offers expert training to both recreational and airline-aspiring pilots, utilizing a fleet of more than 50 fully winged airplanes. The introductory flight lesson gives amateur skysplorers their first experience fluffing air pillows, introducing flight rules and regulations, and basic maneuvers such as takeoffs, mid-flight turns, seat buckling with upside-down hands, and landings. There's no ground lesson before students zip off in their sleek, two-seat Diamond DA-20 for the hour-long session; the whole course takes place with one of the Academy's experienced instructors up in the clouds.

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.

Great folks and easy to schedule. I met up with the same instructor who had been instructing me through another school before that school's plane was damaged and they suspended operations. Joe Robinson is a great instructor and falcon runs a very professional school.

Great instructors and staff and a wide selection of aircraft. I took lessons forty two years ago and had not flown since getting my solo certification due to military relocation at that time. Trying my hand at flight had been on my bucket list for some time and I absolutely loved getting back in the air. It was a thrill to say the least. Thanks again Eric for the experience.
