What You'll Get
Flying a plane is like creating balloon sculptures: it requires concentration, a steady hand, and the ability to block out nearby children screeching, “I want a cloud!” Take the throttle with today's Groupon: for $150, you get a two-hour introductory flight lesson at J.A. Flight Services (a $311.25 value), located at Aurora Airport in Sugar Grove.
J.A. Flight Services shows the ropes to aspiring cloud-chasers with flight lessons taught by respected, easy-to-understand flight instructors, who’ll let students take control of a Cessna 172SP Skyhawk. With this deal, you’ll get 15 minutes of ground instruction and 45 minutes in a state-of-the-art Redbird simulator, followed by an hour of aircraft instruction. After the airborne journey concludes, Lindberghs-in-training will receive a certificate of completion and an endorsement into their logbook.
All aircrafts at J.A. Flight are equipped with Garmin G1000 advanced avionics systems, where flight instrumentation, navigation, weather, terrain, traffic, engine data, and reruns of Three's Company are presented in high resolution on large-format displays inside the cockpit. New pilots are welcome to bring a friendly friend along for no additional cost.
