Flying is the only way to get close enough to a cloud to milk it or to visit your secret sky family. Bolster the bond earthly loved ones just don't understand with today's Groupon: for $149, you get a single-person discovery flight in a weight-shift aircraft from Light Sport Aviation, LLC in Groveland (a $250 value).
During Light Sport Aviation, LLC's single-person flights, students absorb the vistas of picturesque lake country from the open cockpit of a motorized glider alongside FAA-certified instructor Jonny Thompson. After 10 minutes of preparation and perfecting pterodactyl calls, fledgling aviators scramble aboard the weight-shift aircraft, a Krucker Cygnet II amphibious trike, and ride the winged beast up to a mile high for a minimum of 15 minutes. Specially designed wings stabilize the flying machine for safe and easy handling, and the Rotax four-stroke engine makes for expeditious liftoffs from the ground and helps fliers touch down gently on a nearby lake or hot tub. During the roughly 30-minute experience, fliers may catch glimpses of frolicking alligators and other local wildlife.
