Early man tried myriad ways to launch himself into the sky in an attempt to gain the perspective of birds and the sparkliness of stars. Assume the attributes of airborne brethren with today's Groupon: for $74, you get a 60-minute private flight lesson over Dallas from Monarch Air, redeemable at Addison Airport or Collin County Regional Airport at McKinney (a $149 value).

Monarch Air opens the skies to aspiring aviators and seasoned aces alike with flight services that range from aircraft sales and chartering to maintenance and instruction. Students of the Discovery Flight lesson begin by meeting the certified instructor and touring the facilities, which house 15 GPS-enabled training aircraft equipped with dashboard-mounted hula dancing pandas. During a stroll around a Cessna light training aircraft, the student eyes its parts and learns what duty each one performs. After scrambling aboard, the teacher helps the student start the engine and taxi out to the runway for takeoff. Once airborne, students take the controls while the instructor observes from a safe distance like a baby bird's cool aunt. The aircraft buzzes about the local airspace for the remainder of the lesson, until the instructor gently guides it back to earth.

The experience was enjoyable and they handled my questions with care and concern.

Brian was excellent during my initial flight. he was very thorough but not so much that i was lost and not able to enjoy the flight. He certainly has a passion for flying and is great at conveying a message to those who are not fluent in the flying culture.
