Pilots are the cowboys of the air, roaming the wide-open skies and herding children's runaway balloons. Giddy up, up, and away with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a one-hour Pioneer Discovery flight lesson from New Flyers Association (a $199 value).

New Flyers Association's FAA-certified instructors take to the skies with novice pilots, plying them with hands-on experience and observer time in flying fixed-wing aircraft. After a session of ground-based instruction on fundamental techniques, aircraft inspection, and proper emergency arm flapping, students board the plane with their sky-savvy instructor and double check the preflight checklist. Pupils man the controls once they’ve taken off, getting a feel for the plane as they take in the bird's-eye view of Columbus and surrounding areas through the glass-walled cockpit. After 30–40 minutes of cloud wrangling, the professional aeronaut navigates the airship safely back to the runway. The one-hour lesson is a great holiday gift or first step to safer Amelia Earhart impersonations.

New Flyers Association

The nonprofit New Flyers Association empowers Central Ohio student aviators to improve their soaring skills under the tutelage of certified flight instructors. Whether taking off for the first time on an introductory flight or logging hours in pursuit of a Sport, Private, or Instrument Pilot license, pupils experience the freedom of winged travel aboard such flying machines as N566FD, a Flight Design CTLS. The association makes its nest in hangar A-10 at The Ohio State University’s Don Scott Airport, a general aviation airport that allows students to learn fundamentals in a professional environment that's safer than jumping from the top bunk bed.

I would highly recommend this organization for introductory flight. My son, who is interested in aviation, had an exceptional experience with flight instructor Mike. He was extremely excited about the day and now is already planning his next flight The experience that he had at New Flyers gave him the confirmation about his interest in aviation. Mike was very knowledgeable and thorough in explaining the ins and outs of flying. Thanks, Mike.
