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 $179, you get a one-hour Experience Flight Lesson over Westchester County and New York City with Performance Flight.
Performance Flight’s fleet of Cirrus aircraft provides safe and instructive tropospheric trips over Westchester County and its eye-catching neighbors. Your professional instructor will explain the craft’s safety features during a pre-flight briefing before taking off from Westchester County Airport into the great blue air ocean. During your 45 minutes of flight time, pilots relinquish control for part of the time, giving you the opportunity to turn knobs, pull levers, and press the big flashing red button labeled "Do Not Touch" under the watchful guidance of your friendly, trained expert. You will even be sitting in the left seat, which is usually designated for the captain. Gliding down the Hudson, you’ll view glittering Manhattan and the mansions of Greenwich from on high.
