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.

This was fantastic. I would highly suggest. Made a great gift for my dad. (Me getting to go and take pictures was a bonus!)

What You'll Get

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.

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.
