Humans have yearned for the ability to fly for as long as birds have been stealing their prey and superheroes have been stealing their girlfriends. Finally conquer the sky with today’s Groupon: for $185, you get a two-hour introductory flight lesson from J.A. Flight Services (a $392.50 value, including taxes and fees) in Sugar Grove. The flight lesson includes the following:
- Preliminary ground instruction
- One hour in a Redbird FMX full-motion flight simulator
- One hour flying an aircraft with an instructor
- Completion certificate
J.A. Flight Services’ flock of FAA-certified flight instructors introduces aspiring flyers to the open sky aboard a fleet of Garmin G1000-equipped Cessna aircraft. Two-hour training sessions begin with brief ground instruction before students take a spin in a Redbird FMX flight simulator, which safely replicates the pitch of the wings, the heave of the wind, and the racy catcalls of passing geese. Once acquainted with the instrument panel, students climb aboard a real plane for a full hour of cloud-hopping under the supervision of a skilled instructor. Finally, the aircraft’s landing gear firmly regains its grasp on the runway and instructors endow wingmen with a certificate of completion printed on pieces of the first commercial passenger paper airplane. Students may bring an additional observer on board for no extra charge.
