Early man's attempts at flying included sewing feathers onto his arms and scaling mountain peaks in order to cling to the underbellies of passing comets. Learn to fly the new-fashioned way with today's Groupon: for $150, you get an introductory helicopter flight lesson (a $300 value) from SkyDon Flight Services. Lessons take place at the Taylor Municipal Airport.

Certified pilot and instructor Don Arsenault is equipped with a personal fleet of whirlybirds and nearly 10,000 hours of flight time. Each of his flight lessons commence with 45 minutes of group ground instruction, bolstering up to four students' understanding of basic helicopter operation and barrel-roll execution before they strap themselves into the cockpit. Gravity is then defied during 15 minutes of individual flight time, with Arsenault providing one-on-one feedback and revving up students by yodeling "Ride of the Valkyries" directly into their ears. Following the flight, students receive a certificate for their training, and, although not included in the value of today's Groupon, have the option to purchase a video of their skyward excursion ($30).

Best instructor ever!

it was great fun

Don and John were fantastic. Don was very level headed throughout the flight, helping and giving advice calmly, even during moments when my excessive cyclic inputs were making the helicopter squirrelly. John hooked us up with video of our experience. I highly recommend it!
