What You'll Get
From catapulting flaming soldiers over castle walls to sitting on active geysers, humans have long been fixated on flying through the air. Absorb the wonderment of flight with today’s Groupon. For $50, you get an introductory flight lesson at Hub City Aviation, located on the west side of Lubbock International Airport.
At Hub City Aviation, friendly aviation advisers apply their years of aeronautical acumen to guide prospective pilots through the basics of flight. With this deal, cloud-skimming cadets will meet with one of Hub City's Federal Aviation Administration-certified instructors for pre-flight instruction and rudimentary regulations. After being suitably prepped, you'll spend some time behind the yoke of one of the eight high or low-wing craft in their airborne armada, with possible planes like the beginner-friendly Cessna 172N and the Piper Cherokee 180. Instructors will lead aspiring pilots through necessary flight techniques and cockpit controls, like the throttle, altimeter, and emergency Crystal Pepsi valve, then relinquish the controls to give the student a feel for the plane. Upon landing, pupils will receive a debriefing about the flight and additional information on further steps needed to become a FAA-licensed pilot and join the secret brotherhood of ozone masons.
