If no one knew how to fly a plane, we'd have to rely on boring old magic carpets for aerial transportation. Keep runic rugs on the floor with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a first flight lesson at Fly Kalamazoo (a $234 value).

Fly Kalamazoo's first flight lesson teaches wet-behind-the-wings novices how to fly a small plane. The aerial instruction begins with a ground briefing, wherein you'll learn the basics of flight controls, engine controls, instruments, surfaces, and communication with birds before taking a seat in the cockpit and taking off. Your instructor will man the radio while guiding you through basic maneuvers (turning, climbing, descending, and configuration changes) as well as aerial procedures such as the chocolate dodo. Because you'll be able to choose the direction of your flight, it's possible you can fly over landmarks such as Kalamazoo's 161-foot-tall statue of Bruce Lee. Fly Kalamazoo's planes are maintained in accordance with the Federal Aviation Administration and thoroughly inspected every 100 hours of operation.
