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 an introductory flight lesson in a tailwheel airplane (a $350 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 the basics of operating one of the club's fully equipped aircrafts during 30 minutes of ground instruction, then strap in as a friendly flight trainer guides you through 90 minutes of airborne driver's ed. Aspiring aeronauts will learn how to climb, maneuver, turn, and descend while enjoying views of Long Island's beaches under the tutelage of an instructor, or as they are known in the original Latin, a wingman. The package also gets you a pilot's logbook to begin logging your flight training and drawing blueprints of log-shaped aircraft, plus a complimentary six-month subscription to Flight Training magazine, admission to the American Airpower Museum, a New York aeronautical chart, and a T-shirt.

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.
