$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.

Customer Reviews

LOVED IT!!! Best Groupon we ever purchased. We bought and used it 4 years ago and to this day it was the best deal ever. Richard is a very knowledgeable and experienced pilot. Narrated the whole ride for my husband and myself. I was nervous about the small plane, but talking with him before the ride made me more comfortable. Views were magnificent. Seeing the lakes & mountains from the sky was breathtaking. Best money ever spent. Thank you Richard for a wonderful time. Hope to take a ride with you again sometime.
