They were 1 1/2 hour late in their appointment. But they were very nice. If they had called to tell us they were that late, we could have spent some time doing something else, before coming to see Monterey Bay Aviation.

What You'll Get

Without planes, frequent air travelers must risk haggling baggage fees with temperamental human slingshot operators. Take flight into your own hands with today's Groupon: for $100, you get a discovery flight at Monterey Bay Aviation in Monterey (a $250 value).

Monterey Bay Aviation's instructors combine more than 18,000 logged flight hours to teach amateur aviators the principles of piloting. In the discovery flight lesson, soon-to-be-sky-people will first get acquainted with the surrounding Monterey Peninsula Airport in a brief facility tour. Learners will then meet with a pilot, who will explain the major parts of the Cessna 172 Skyhawk, debrief with a pre-flight checklist, and teach mandatory secret handshakes. After a quick weather briefing, the student will plop down on the pilot seat next to their instructor, kick-start the engines, learn how to taxi the craft, and perform a run-up. Finally, with the client behind the knobs, together the co-pilots take to the skies for about 45 minutes to revel in the panoramic local scenery and the assistance of an in-flight genie. Once grounded, the aeronaut will dish out post-flight details and future flight training options, such as official programs or investments in kite-suits.
