Pilots are the cowboys of the air, roaming the wide-open skies and herding children's runaway balloons. Giddy up, up, and away with this Groupon.

Certified instructors begin lessons on the ground, teaching students the basics behind various flight controls and instrumentation. Then pilots accompany pupils aboard a 150-horsepower Piper Cherokee 140 aircraft, providing in-flight instruction as students perform introductory training maneuvers and slalom among the clouds over the Salt River. After notching their belts with the hours they traveled, students will be ready to continue on with their flight training and to taunt landlocked ostriches.
