Go early after you ask for directions on the phone because there are no signs on the main drive as to where to go. You have to know where to turn, where to stop at a closed gate and call for someone to let you in. As a result I was late after stopping 3 times to find them. The flight itself was great, the only apprehension I had was landing but there were no problems.

New Flyers is definitely worth the money! Unlike traveling commercially, this was enjoyable. I highly recommend them!

Terrific opportunity to experience small plane flying. Wonderful instructor, he has been there and done that. Difficult to schedule, but am happy that I had the opportunity to experience flying in this way.

What You'll Get

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.
