Humans have longed to reach the stars for thousands of years, mostly to pay the aliens what we owe them for constructing the pyramids. Come closer to paying off interstellar debt with this Groupon: for $79, you get a one-hour introductory flight lesson, which includes 45 minutes of flight time, from Freeway Airport in Bowie (a $200 value).

For more than half a century, Freeway Airport's certified flight school has launched new students skyward seven days a week under the guidance of its veteran instructors. A one-hour discovery flight begins at ground level amid tranquil surroundings as instructors provide an introduction to flight principles and instruments. As eyes soak in the pilot's seat view, ears absorb instruction on use of the throttle, yoke, and rudder pedals. Once airborne, pupil-piloted aircrafts turn, climb, descend, and deliver top-secret dossiers to the lords of the cloud people.

Students may apply their flight time to the total time required to obtain an FAA-approved pilot's license. For an additional $25 fee, one guest can tag along on introductory flights to provide a cappella renditions of "Danger Zone."
