Pilots are the cowboys of the air, roaming the wide-open skies and herding children's runaway balloons. Giddy up, up, and away with today's Groupon: for $199, you get a two-hour flight lesson at Learn To Fly San Diego (up to a $500 value).

Learn To Fly San Diego's team of experienced flight instructors share their passion for flight with fledgling flyers during two-hour private lessons. Before heading skyward in one of the facility's cozy passenger planes, students study their way through a 30-minute preflight instruction, familiarizing themselves with the craft's basic components and how to ask for a bathroom break using semaphore flags. Students may bring up to two guests with them during picturesque treks through herds of cloud animals, though a weight restriction of 275 pounds per person does apply. After the flight, a 30-minute follow-up gifts students with a pilot logbook, a poster of a cockpit, a pilot training DVD, and all-day access to Learn to Fly's aviation center and helicopter petting zoo.

While the average person spends thousands of hours stuck in traffic during a lifetime, the instructors at Learn To Fly San Diego prefer to rack up that time in the sky. Each member of the certified flight team keeps track of their time off the ground, with numbers ranging between 1,500 and 36,000 hours. As the propellers turn on Cessna and Piper planes, the pilots lead passengers on training flights and sightseeing tours. Students can also work with Learn To Fly San Diego to train for certification in occupations such as commercial pilot, certified flight instructor, and chauffeur for superheroes that can't really fly.

Customer Reviews

I got this introductory class as a gift for my boyfriend for christmas and can honestly say it's the best gift I've given. The entire experience was very relaxed and laid back. The pilot did a great job of making us less nervous, and the entire time in the air it just felt like one big roller coaster. I would 100% recommend this as a gift!
