$69 for a Discovery Flight Experience ($139 Value)

The aerial adventure begins with a 15-minute stint in the flight simulator, which replicates a cockpit's controls, instruments, panoramic visuals, and motion feedback. Then, instructors lead students into the aircraft hangar for 10–15 minutes of ground training that introduces the Cessna SkyCatcher aircraft’s parts and the basic tenets of flying. Upon takeoff, pilots fly south and enjoy views of Lake Mathews before heading east to fly over Lake Elsinore and Canyon Lake. During the 30-minute flight, student copilots are allowed to take the controls and practice steering and navigation before the instructor glides into a smooth landing back at Riverside Airport.

Riverside Flight Academy

Based at the Riverside Municipal Airport, the instructors at Riverside Flight Academy produce nearly every kind of civilian aviator. The academy is able to quickly determine whether recreational or commercial pilot hopefuls have what it takes to fly using simulators and training aircraft. Student aviators can start into one of several career programs for commercial and airline transport pilots.

Customer Reviews

Thanks for a great experience! I think this experience has convinced my friend to renew his pilot's license which expired thirty years ago.

It's an unusual fun experience with very great price on Groupon! Go for it! See the world and yourself in a different angle!

My husband received this groupon as a birthday present. He has told everyone who will listen what an excellent time he had. While we are not able to afford the entire flight school experience, he was able to mark flying a small plane off his bucket list. Our instructor made the entire experience a lot of fun (even for me in the back seat!)
