Pilots are the cowboys of the air, roaming the wide-open skies and herding children's runaway balloons. Giddy up, up, and away with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a discovery flight package with a three-hour ground-school lesson and one-hour flight from Future Eagles Aviation (a $249 value). Participants must be 12 years or older to fly.

The FAA-certified instructors at Future Eagles Aviation launch aspiring pilots into the great blue yonder with Discovery Flight School classes and an hour of hands-on soaring over Sacramento. Pupils first complete three hours of ground instruction on Friday night from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., during which mentors dispense nuggets of piloting know-how, such as navigation tips, laws of aerodynamics, and how to differentiate paint nicks from pterodactyl love bites. Students can approach actual aircrafts to absorb plane anatomy and the guidelines of preflight inspections.

Graduates then climb into the cockpit of a Cessna 172 Skyhawk on Saturday morning, pushing off from terra firma for a one-hour jaunt at around 3,500 feet. Teachers bequeath the throttle to protégés for 30 minutes of airtime. Patrons are encouraged to bring a camera for snapshots of steering poses and eagles making duck faces. After purchasing today's Groupon, buyers can schedule their ascent and gander at FAQs here.

Future Eagles Aviation

The FAA-certified instructors at Future Eagles Aviation put clients behind the controls of actual aircraft as they teach them the ins and outs of aviation. Students amass skills such as navigation and cockpit familiarity on the ground in adventure flight school before lifting off in a Cessna 172 training aircraft for 30 minutes of flight time. Kids can also take to the sky during Future Eagles Aviation’s youth aviation summer camp, a weeklong foray into the world of cloud skimming and Peter Pan mimicry during which kids aged 10 and older practice on simulators and log real flight hours in training aircraft.
