Though flying a plane may seem like a challenge, it pales in comparison to parallel parking a cruise boat or executing a three-point turn on a Zamboni. Master the skies with today’s deal: for $85, you get a one-hour introductory flight lesson from Freeway Aviation in Bowie (a $170 value).

Freeway Airport has been offering flight instruction for more than 50 years and is the closest general aviation airport to Capitol Hill without restrictive security regulations, making it an excellent access point for DC Metro-area residents who want to earn their wings. Introductory lessons start with a guided preflight check of the aircraft and examination of fuel levels and flight controls, as well as a brief training session on proper tints for aviator shades. You’ll spend about 30 minutes in the air with your instructor, during which you’ll get hands-on experience in flying fundamentals such as turns, straight and level flying, climbs, and descents. Enjoy gorgeous views of Annapolis and the playful giant crabs of the Chesapeake. Return to base to debrief with your wise wingperson about what you’ve learned and accomplished during your intimate cloud encounter.

Freeway Airport

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. One-hour discovery flights begin 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.
