Commonly Asked Questions

Q:

Q:

If I buy two, one as a gift, one for myself - can two people take the class and then fly together for about 1 1/2 hours - taking turns?

Stefan v.  asked on  Dec 8, 2012

A:

Yes! Just let our office know when call to schedule your reservation and provide both Groupon numbers. Also, be prepared to provide your combined weights (including holiday meals!) so we can reserve the appropriate aircraft.

Q:

How far in advance do I need to call, and how fast will the reservations fill up?

Samantha B.  asked on  Dec 11, 2012

A:

We have a fleet of suitable aircraft, so we don't have a mandatory advance notice period and have not had any scheduling issues (see our very strong Groupon Rating!). Even with only a few days notice, you can generally find a good reservation.

Q:

Does this have to be an introductory lesson? Can the student have previous flight hours (from a different state) and still use the groupon towards their flight log?

Elizabeth L.  asked on  Dec 9, 2012

A:

The training on this Groupon is focused on an intro lesson only. We offer other programs for existing students who are getting back in to flying. Contact the office at info@flightgest.com for more information. Thanks!

Q:

Is there a weight limit on a the person taking the lesson? I wanted to make sure before I bought this for my husband.

Jamie  asked on  Dec 9, 2012

A:

Our fleet can generally accomodate a person of any size who can fit in a belted aircraft seat. We have trained students with weight ranging from 90 pounds to 300 pounds and height ranging from under 5 feet to 6'8". Please email the office at info@flightgest.com if you have more specific concerns and advise our team of any weight/size concerns when you make your reservation. Thanks!

Q:

I'm a little confused by the "services must be used by the same person" line. I would like to buy 2 deals as Christmas gifts: one for my 17 year old granddaughter and one for my son-in-law. It is also possible that each of them would like to be the rider along while the other is getting their lesson. How does the "services must be used by the same person" line play into this scenario? Thanks.

walter m.  asked on  Dec 9, 2012

A:

That line means a single Groupon can't be split in two shorter sessions. You can certainly purchase 2 deals, and they can ride along while the other is getting their lesson. Just ask them to identify both Groupon certificate numbers when they call our office to make their "double" reservation. Thanks!

Q:

Are There any restrictions for taking this lesson? How many hours of training does one need to become licensed? Could you use two groupons to fulfill two of the hours required?

Judith G.  asked on  Dec 9, 2012

A:

The only restriction for taking this lesson are shown on the Groupon terms - you do not need any previous flight experience! The number of hours required to become licensed is a minimum of 40 hrs, but the actual amount of hours will depend greatly on many factors. No, the same person can not use two Groupons to log additional flight time.

Q:

1. Are you permitted to select the instructor? 2. I need 3 for gifts. Is there a way to do this?

Linda D.  asked on  Dec 8, 2012

A:

All our instructors are FAA-certified and are capable of providing the intro flights. You can certainly request a particular instructor, but we can not guarantee their availability for your reservation - but we will try our best! If you'd like to purchase three as gifts, you can purchase them as separate groupons or call our office

Q:

it's 1 hour-- how is the time divided up between the briefing and actual air time?

Clark G.  asked on  Dec 8, 2012

A:

You should plan on about 1.5 hours total for the lesson. About 30 minutes for the registration and pre-briefing, 15 minutes for the preflight inspection and about 45 minutes in the aircraft. Note that the actual "air time" may vary slightly based on current weather, air traffic, etc. Thanks!
