Learning to fly isn’t merely a human invention, as fledgling birds must also learn to stretch their wings, turn off their iMacaw laptops, and receive proper landing clearance from the avian traffic-control nest. Learn to fly as the birds do with today’s Groupon: for $119, you get the one-hour Super-Sized Discovery Flight (a $199 value) at Slipstream Aviation, located at Dallas Executive Airport. You must be at least 18 years old to be on the plane.
Slipstream Aviation gives aspiring aviators yearning to take a crack at piloting the opportunity to take the helm of a real plane and soar over the Dallas skyline. With the Super-Sized Discovery Flight, fliers take part in the pre-flight inspection of the small training plane, receive a quick lesson on how to taxi the plane to the runway, then display their superiority over gravity by cruising the skies for about an hour. Flight instructor and owner Mischa Porter has logged thousands of hours in the air, displaying high standards for aircraft maintenance and customer satisfaction. With Slipstream’s flight-instructing gurus, you’ll feel calm and collected behind the throttle, as they’ll teach you basic flight maneuvers, how to keep the aircraft steady, and the secret pilot handshake that gets you access to Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger’s exclusive underground rave.
The hourlong instructional flight presents those curious about serious study with a taste of cloud-skimming before committing to flight school or auditioning for the role of Mike "Viper" Metcalf in Top Gun: The Musical. Wet your whistle for mechanical flight and get a bird’s-eye view of the greater Dallas area with today’s Groupon to Slipstream Aviation.
