$69 for Discovery Flight Package ($139.99 Value)

After a certified flight instructor demonstrates preflight and flying techniques, teacher and student climb aboard a light sport aircraft, which the instructor taxis down the runway and powers into the air. During the half-hour flight, pupils steer the plane through the sky before the pilot takes over again for the landing. At the subsequent debriefing, guests pen their first logbook entry, review their performance, and receive a DVD of the flight as well as a framed chunk of cloud caught during their trip.

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.

Great value, great instruction, great service.

It was a great experience, but I did not get my souvenir piece of cloud.

Booking was very easy. My boyfriend loved the gift. The flight was pleasant and the staff was friendly. The only thing we didn't like was that they didn't give us any cd with the flight like the groupon said and the ground training was just a little 5 minute conversation about the plane, nothing like the 30 minute training they described. But other than that the experience was awesome. Trainer made sure everything was safe and fun. Thank you!
