Observing an airplane in its natural habitat is a task that often entails stowing away in its landing gear or gluing cotton balls to your clothing to credibly pass as clouds. Get to know these skittish sky denizens with today’s Groupon: for $149, you get a two-hour flight experience from King Aviation Mansfield in Mansfield (a $401 total value). The flight experience includes:

  • One hour of ground instruction (a $178 value, including plane and instructor costs)
  • One hour of hands-on flight instruction (a $178 value, including plane and instructor costs)
  • A student logbook and flight information packet (a $20 value)
  • Two photographs of the flight experience (a $25 value)<p>

The upper altitudes of earth’s atmosphere embrace pilots-in-training as they soar through clouds in a Cessna plane. Before they can shake off the shackles of gravity, students learn the ins-and-outs of the aircraft from a team of FAA-certified flight instructors, who review instrumental directions and demonstrate the physics of gravity by pushing students down a grassy knoll. Engines then roar to life as instructors guide students through takeoff procedures and the plane starts to ascend—the black tarmac ribbons of the Mansfield Municipal Airport steadily shrinking from view. Flying high above the infinitesimal towns of Plymouth, Boston, and Providence, students try their hand at gentle turns and steep nosedives. After posing with thumbs up for a midair photograph, students steer the plane toward Gillette Stadium to swoop over the field and steal footballs overthrown during the Patriots’ practice.

Upon return to terra firma, instructors endorse the flight hour in a logbook that charts the pathway toward official pilot certification—achievable through one of King Aviation Mansfield’s very own flight school courses. Students can take this book home along with two in-flight photographs, both airbrushed to eliminate all evidence of their instructors’ imperiled expressions.

Participants must weight 265 pounds or less and sign a waiver before flying.
