What You'll Get

A pilot’s bravery is surpassed only by his fear of one day being fired, thus having to accept the dreaded golden parachute. Defy gravity-promoting pension plans with today’s Groupon: for $57, you get a Discovery Flight package from Middletown Regional Flight Training Institute in Middletown (a $113 total value). The package includes:

  • A 45-minute ground school (a $25 value)
  • A 30-minute introductory lesson (a $75 value)
  • A logbook with an endorsed entry (a $13 value)
  • Credit toward a pilot’s license<p>

At Middletown Regional Flight Training Institute’s runway base, budding aviators reach for the skies during lessons that include a preparatory ground school and an in-flight ballet amongst the clouds. A team of FAA-certified flight instructors first acquaints pupils with the intricacies of their Cessna and Beechcraft planes, reviewing the basics of in-flight controls and addressing relevant inquiries about the territorial habits of feral weather balloons. Propellers then roar to life and students try their own hands at basic tasks such as taxiing the plane along the runway and taking off with the instructor’s assistance. Once airborne, students take charge of the controls for a half-hour filled with climbs, descents, and evasive barrel rolls.

After guiding the plane to a safe landing, instructors endorse the hours in a logbook that details flight data and the plane’s innermost thoughts about hunky helicopters. The logged flight hours counts toward a pilot’s license for those who choose to continue training in one of Middletown’s certificate courses.

Pilots must be 16 years old with a valid ID and weigh 239 pounds or less. Participants must sign a waiver before flying.
