Humans have long sought a way to fly, from Daedalus's wax wings to Leonardo's proto-helicopters to Benjamin Franklin's daily inhalation of helium. Conquer a fully realized method of aerial exploration with today's Groupon: for $300, you get 20 hours of ground training (a $500 value) and a Jeppesen private pilot manual (a $100 value) at NexGen Aviation (a $600 total value).

Having racked up more than 1,600 hours of flight instruction, NexGen Aviation co-owner and chief flight instructor Brandon Morton expertly leads cloud-splitting novices to confident gravity defiance with scenario-based flight training. Ground training is the first step to atmospheric dominance, readying landlubbers' minds for the private pilot written test and the Top Gun trivia oral test required for further airborne antics. During 20 classroom hours, instructors will discuss technical topics such as the certificates and documents required by the FAA and federal aviation regulations. Students will also explore the text of the Jeppesen private pilot manual, getting into the nitty-gritty of aerodynamics, weather preparedness, and cross-country flight planning before learning proper use of the "fasten seatbelt" sign.

NexGen Aviation

As a boy, Brandon Morton indulged his fascination with airplanes and flying by going to every aviation show he could. Today, with more 5,000 hours of flight time—including more than 2,300 hours of flight instruction—he shares his passion for flying at NexGen Aviation where he works alongside co-owner and accomplished jet pilot Dale Gillispie, who has more than 25 years of flying experience.

From Bluegrass Field Airport, Brandon and Dale maintain a fleet of Diamond and Cirrus aircrafts for single-engine training and a Beech Duchess for multi-engine training—each highly engineered aircrafts that boast solid safety statistics. It is also here that the owners and their fellow instructors teach students through a blend of theoretical classroom work and hands-on scenario training. Through these courses, they prepare aspiring pilots to apply for their private, commercial, or professional pilot license. Further services range from sightseeing flights and aircraft sales and management to tutorials on how to properly fold a paper airplane.
