What You'll Get
Anyone who claims that humans weren't meant to fly was likely pecked in their neonatal soft-spot by the predator hawk that delivers all babies. Do what you were born to do with today's deal: for $75, you get an introductory discovery flight package from Pilotjourney.com, which includes one actual flying lesson, pre-flight ground-work, take-home instructional materials, and more (a $149.95 value). See the right sidebar for participating locations.
Pilotjourney.com connects FAA-certified flight instructors with hopeful pupils. The comprehensive introductory discovery flight package helps fledgling flyers get their footing in the great blue yonder, bypassing the perils of ignorance and the feral pigeons that populate the stratosphere. Included in the package is "Reach for the Sky," a CD written by Pilotjourney.com pilots that contains several computer-based seminars and two computer-based ground lessons, helping students get acquainted with aircraft procedures from the familiar comforts of earth. Two electronic flying handbooks reinforce this knowledge. Once you've completed Pilotjourney.com's suggested pre-flying curriculum, you'll get to put your knowledge to the test during a 30–40 minute assisted-control flying lesson with an experienced instructor. After your exhilarating zigzag through the clouds, you'll return to the realities of earth, but quickly get lifted from the humdrums with a six-month subscription to a leading flight magazine and a certificate of accomplishment (both upon request). See a full list of the discovery flight package's contents here.
Pilotjourney.com is a nucleus for top-notch aviation instruction nationwide that functions by connecting aspiring pilots to the best flight schools in their area. When you purchase a discovery flight package through Pilotjourney.com, you'll receive a certificate that can be cashed in at any of the Pilotjourney.com's affiliated (and participating) locations across the country, making it a convenient gift for far-flung friends as well as beloved-but-meddling family members you'd like to fling a bit farther.
