From catapulting flaming soldiers over castle walls to sitting on active geysers, humans have long been fixated on flying through the air. Absorb the wonderment of flight with today’s Groupon: for $199, you get a New York City Adventure Flight lesson (a $400 value) from the professional instructors at Nassau Flyers. Flights leave from Republic Airport in East Farmingdale. Since 1976, Nassau Flyers' FAA-certified instructors have been teaching beginners and training pilots in the ways of the cloud people. Learn how to climb, maneuver, turn, and descend at the helm of a Cessna Skyhawk 172, all while enjoying amazing views of the New York City skyline. Each student spends about 90 minutes in the plane from start to finish and is allowed one willing sidekick, or as they are known in original Latin, a wingman.

Nassau Flyers

The FAA-certified instructors at Nassau Flyers have helped countless students obtain pilot licenses since 1976. Today, their rental fleet still roars to life, lifts off from Republic Airport, and soars into the skies above Long Island's shorelines and New York City's iconic skyline. Nestled within the likes of a Cessna 152 or a Piper Cruiser PA28-140, the instructors let students take the controls during their very first lesson, and then guide them all the way to FAA licensure.

The ground school complements this in-air training with classroom work and simulator time. Their Redbird FMX full-motion simulator wraps students in a fully enclosed cockpit and lets them practice various scenarios. When not training the next generation of pilots, Nassau Flyers' staff is often in the hanger maintaining aircrafts or anxiously awaiting the new Wilbur Wright action figure to put in their pilot shop.
