Early man made many attempts at flying, such as sewing feathers onto his arms and scaling mountain peaks in order to cling to the underbellies of passing comets. Learn to fly the new-fashioned way with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a half-hour Discovery Flight and a DVD from First Landings Aviation in Apopka (a $99 value).

The Discovery Flight lifts beginners from the confines of gravity into a half-hour ride over a magnificent vista. The Discovery Flight begins with a lesson from one of First Landings Aviation’s certified flight instructors, demonstrating preflight and flying techniques. After hitting the books, waltz to the runway and climb aboard a light sport aircraft. Once the preflight checks are complete, the pilot will taxi down the runway, explaining the process along the way, and finally take off, catapulting the craft right into Mother Nature's disapproving face. For the next half-hour, you steer on metal wings as the plane soars through the pastel skies. Once the journey ends, the pilot will retake the reins and float over the treetops for a landing back at the aviation school followed by a debriefing, video review, and your first pilot's logbook entry. Guests return home with a DVD capturing their weightless adventure.

First Landings Aviation

The certified flight instructors at First Landings Aviation were all actively airborne by their 20s: Adam Valencic earned his Private Pilot's License at 19, and Chris Buell and Kyle Pack began flying at ages 12 and 13, respectively. The pilots harness their years-long enthusiasm for each individually tailored student program they offer, be it a half-hour Discovery flight, sport-pilot training, or private-pilot training. The sport-pilot flight-instructor course, meanwhile, affords students opportunities to practice their instruction skills before teaching others how to beat flocks of migratory geese in drag races. With their licenses in tow, pilots can also take the skies in one of First Landing Aviation's rental aircrafts.

Customer Reviews

I had a fantastic time, my instructor Joey was great. I will definitely be thinking of getting my pilot's license.

Very friendly and professional operation they have going on there. Joey Castillo was the instructor for myself, and my two grown young adult children. He was VERY professional and really knew what he was doing. He put us all at ease with his professionalism, and friendly disposition. Flying the nice little two seater "stick & rudder" aircraft was a lot of fun, but it was also very much a flying lesson as Joey did his best to educate us all during the short time we had in the seat. I would HIGHLY recommend this to just about anybody young or old. Flight in a small aircraft is pretty much the closest thing to being a bird we humans can experience, so go for it! Thanks to Joey and everybody there at FLA!
