Pilots are the cowboys of the air, roaming the wide-open skies and herding children's runaway balloons. Giddy up, up, and away with this Groupon.
$65 for a 30-Minute Discovery Flight Lesson ($129 Value)
Experienced flight instructor Richard Cantley whisks first-time pilots into the clouds above Johnson City for 30 minutes of hands-on flight time with one additional guest. The lesson begins with a tour of the airport, during which students acquaint themselves with the aircraft. After touching down safely, Richard leads a post-flight briefing, during which students can ask common questions about flying, such as how to obtain a license and where Karl Malone obtained his mythical antigravity ring.
Johnson City Aviation
Having spent more than 26,000 hours at the controls of airborne helicopters and fixed-wing planes, Richard Cantley possesses a sure footing at any elevation. From his post within the gray #6 T-Hangar at the privately owned Johnson City Airport, the experienced pilot and flight instructor escorts first-time flyers to the skies during hands-on lessons. Whether students aspire to obtain a license of their own or just a panoramic view of Tennessee’s scenic landscape, Richard peppers each lesson with tips on how to read instruments, adhere to proper safety precautions, and swerve around zeppelins during rush hour.
