Pilots are the cowboys of the air, roaming the wide-open skies and herding children’s runaway balloons. Giddy up, up, and away with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a discovery flight package from Royal Aviation in Costa Mesa (a $199.95 value). The package includes:

  • One hour of ground instruction
  • One hour of flight instruction
  • A flight logbook<p>

Professional pilots at the FAA-approved Royal Aviation flight school instruct students on taking to the skies, guiding them in manning a small aircraft on discovery flights. Before soaring through the atmosphere, first-time fliers undergo an hour of private ground instruction, in which an experienced instructor teaches them the basics of plane operation and imparts tips on overcoming sky rage. During the airborne portion of the lesson, customers can bring along a friend or family-member sidekick and brave the skies for a 60-minute aerial voyage. With step-by-step guidance from the instructor, students launch a four-seated Cessna 172 aircraft from the John Wayne Airport, whizzing past confused birds and dipping through cumulus clouds. Postlanding, students can record technical tips and any superhero sightings in their flight logbook.
