Flying is a lot like having a staring contest: even with utter concentration, you’ll never be better at it than birds. Go toe-to-beak with our winged companions with today's Groupon: for $74, get an introductory flight lesson at Horizon Aviation at TF Green Airport in Warwick, Rhode Island, or Norwood Memorial Airport in Boston (a $199.90 value).
Horizon Aviation, one of the largest flight schools in southern New England, enables sky-curious students to dabble in the art of mechanized levitation during 30-minute lessons that incorporate ground and air instruction. Whether clients wish to fly as a hobby, career, or means of glitter-dusting acre-long greeting cards, they'll sample the joys of aerial navigation as they seagull over New England's landscapes with the help of a seasoned instructor boasting hundreds of hours of flight experience. Aviation amateurs may also have the chance to handle the yoke during an aircraft takeoff, as long as the troposphere is devoid of gusty winds and flying saucers hurled by frustrated dishwashers. After traversing the empyrean empire of clouds, they'll depart Horizon with a picture of themselves post-flight and an official logbook commemorating their maiden voyage.
Students interested in continuing aeronautical education after introductory lessons can explore Horizon Aviation's extensive list of flight programs, as it is an FAA Part 141–approved flight academy offering eight different FAA licenses.
