Though often mistaken for birds and supermen, airplanes can easily be distinguished by the metallic sheen of their feathers and their lack of evil alter egos. Experience the difference firsthand with today's Groupon to Flight Academy of New Orleans, located at the Lakefront Airport. Choose between the following options:

Ground-dwellers can turn to Flight Academy of New Orleans for help conquering the skies, both as passengers looking for magnificent new perspectives on a stunning city and as students seeking flight instruction from licensed professionals. The 30-minute Big Easy Aerial Tour takes sightseers soaring over some of the most breathtaking scenery in the region, from the Port of New Orleans and the Superdome to the French Quarter and the bayous of South Louisiana. Cameras are encouraged, and passengers are welcome to request customized tours.

Alternatively, wingman wannabes can ease their jealousy-fueled hostility toward the family canary during the Orientation to Flight lesson. The session includes 30 minutes of ground instruction, one hour of simulated flight coaching, and one 30-minute flight lesson in a two-seat Cessna 152. A 180-pound weight and 6-foot height limit applies to the flight lesson; those exceeding the weight or height limit can upgrade to a bigger aircraft for additional cost.
