What You'll Get
From catapulting flaming soldiers over castle walls to sitting on active geysers, humans have long been fixated on flying through the air. Absorb the wonderment of flight with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get an hour-long flying lesson (a $199 value) with Flight International Academy in Nashua, NH.
Flight International Academy specializes in one-on-one flight training for aspiring pilots. The cadre of talented, experienced instructors is well versed in the arts of flying, teaching others to fly, and warning wax-winged fools away from the sun. Gird your courage for the testing, and trust in your instructor's expertise during the course of your discovery flight lesson. For the first 15–20 minutes, you'll learn the basics of operating one of FIA's cozy aircrafts in a ground lesson that orients potential pilots to their almost-airborne environs. The flight itself will last for approximately one hour, with you at the reins from takeoff to landing. The instructor naturally remains at your side for the entirety of the flight, ready to forestall error and encourage you to new, literal heights of aerial greatness. After alighting once more upon terra firma, the adrenaline will churn and a sense of accomplishment will begin to harden. If you decide to pursue further training with Flight International Academy, your freshly minted discovery flight certificate will count toward official accreditation hours.
Those who miss the thrill of having a well-taken math test affixed to the fridge via magnet can bring along two extra people to witness their airborne achievements for an additional $20 per person. Your guests will be able to participate in the non-flight part of the lesson, but must sit on their hands in the back of the plane during your flight.
Call ahead or email to schedule your flight; bring your Groupon and a valid ID to your lesson. This Groupon is not valid with other discounts. There are no age, weight, or height restrictions for this deal.
