Though it prohibits us from bench-pressing cars, gravity is the best thing for getting water out of the sky and the only thing keeping football stadiums from floating away. Resist its hold with today's Groupon: for $70, you get a 35-minute introductory flight class (a $119 value) at Peak Aviation Center, located at the Colorado Springs Airport.

Peak Aviation Center's trained instructors teach budding pilots to unfasten Earth's shackles on one of two light Cessna aircraft planes, the 172N or 172SP. For 95% of the 35-minute flight, you'll man the controls, learning the basics of climbing, turning, descending, and humming "Danger Zone" on a kazoo while zipping through the clouds. Though you won't be certified to fly alone after this lesson, you'll be on your way, or at least earn the right to summon planes to your aid if you've fallen down a well.

Peak Aviation Center suggests you be at least 15 years old to use this Groupon, and facilities are closed on Sundays.

Peak Aviation Center

From its nest at Colorado Springs Airport, Peak Aviation Center opens the skyways for fledgling aviators through aircraft rentals and a variety of flying courses. During their Introductory Flights, the center’s seasoned instructors relinquish controls of a light sport aircraft to students hungering to dominate gravity. Learning aeronauts can control the flying machines for up to an hour as they ascend, descend, and dodge shots from surprisingly powerful T-shirt cannons. Peak Aviations enthusiastic masters of the clouds also guide flying protégés to private and sport pilot certificates through hands-on flight training. Flying lessons are held every day of the week, including Sunday even when their offices are closed.
