Sky Training LLC - Greenwood Lake Airport: 75-Minute Discovery Flight Experience for One or Two or NY Skyline Flight for Two from Sky Training LLC (Up to 58% Off)

Pilots are the cowboys of the air, roaming the wide-open skies and herding children's runaway balloons. Giddy up, up, and away with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $229 for a romantic day or night New York skyline flight for two (a $499 value)
  • $99 for a 75-minute Discovery Flight experience for one (a $224 value)
  • $189 for a 75-minute Discovery Flight experience for two (a $448 value)

For Discovery Flights, experienced pilots instruct students on the basics of navigation, plane controls, and radio procedures during 30 minutes of ground school and briefings before and after 45-minute flights. Those who wish to share the experience with a friend can choose the second option and combine their flight lessons. Then, one student flies to Orange County Airport in New York while the other takes photographs of the scenic landscapes below, and they switch seats on the return trip. During scenic flights, couples relax and let a pilot steer them over Greenwood Lake, one of the largest in New Jersey. As Sky Training LLC holds flights year-round, they can be gifted to friends and family for any occasion, holiday, or unbirthday.

The romantic flight lasts more than an hour and begins as the pilot departs over Greenwood Lake, then steers course toward the Hudson River, which gives couples a bird’s-eye view of the Tappan Zee Bridge. From there, the plane cruises past some of New York’s most-famous landmarks before a final swing past the George Washington Bridge.

Grounded from flying long ago, an old Lockheed Constellation sits in front of the terminal at Greenwood Lake Airport. Remodeled into a pilot's lounge and rental hall, the converted aircraft now offers views of aspiring pilots as they sharpen their skills under the capable guidance of Sky Training LLC's FAA–certified instructors. The company's training program meets or exceeds FAA standards, with serious flight students receiving practical experience combined with educational DVDs, textbooks, and Jeppesen visual and audio materials. Ground-school sessions cover regulations, flight planning, and radio procedures, and in-the-air sessions impart takeoff and landing skills and help students to master flight instruments. Sky Training also offers scenic flights over Greenwood Lake, teaching all types of professionals how to fly, from salesmen who want to cover more ground to dentists who need to fit their avian patients for braces.
