$189 for a Tail-Wheel Aircraft Ride-Along Flight ($380 Value)
During this one-hour introductory flight, you and an FAA-certified pilot take to the skies in a single-engine, propeller-powered light aircraft. After the ascent, you’ll get a chance to fly the plane using its charmingly antiquated control stick, all while learning to climb, descend, and turn.
