$69 for a Discovery Flight ($150 Value)

FAA-certified pilots take to the skies to help novices discover the joy of flying fixed-wing aircraft. Over the course of an hour, beginning captains take the controls of the plane, granting them their first hour on the road to certification. Jacobs Flight Services' pilots take over for landing and takeoff, and students receive a logbook for their first entry. Flights depart from the Clewiston Airglades Airport.

Jacobs Flight Services

At the tender age of 15, Jason Jacobs had taken up an unusual hobby: flying airplanes. Since the moment Jacobs first climbed into the cockpit, he has accumulated more than 9,500 hours of flight time, studied aeronautics at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and captained both Gulfstream G400 and Falcon aircrafts. To share his passion for aviation with others, in 2008 Jason founded Jacobs Flight Services, a flight-training center and aircraft-management company. The FAA 141–approved flight school offers extensive flight training with both its fleet of expertly maintained aircraft and a computerized testing center. A flying club grants licensed pilots access to the fleet and facilities, and scenic tours send nonpilots zipping through the skies over Lake Okeechobee, where a retired Zeus passes the time grooming his prize herd of cloud animals.
