What You'll Get

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 lesson with ground and air instruction at Middle River Aviation (a $205 value), located at Martin State Airport.

The nine licensed and passionate flight instructors at Middle River Aviation steer aspiring pilots through both a grounded aviation lesson and a midair experience in the blue yonder. Pupils remain bound to the ground for a half-hour session on flying fundamentals, including aircraft anatomy, safety protocols, and how to treat a bite from a cloud. Mentors then lead students to Middle River's fleet of Cessnas and other planes, which comprises one of the largest menageries of training aircrafts in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area. For an additional 30 minutes, students hone their aerial navigation skills from the cockpit as they fly above Martin State Airport. The airport's functional control tower introduce students to flying into or out of any airport based on their brands of etiquette, ranging from takeoff and landing procedures to the regional guidelines for drag-racing against hawks.
