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 to Slipstream Aviation. Choose between the following options:

  • For $119, you get a Super-Sized Discovery Flight, a private flight lesson with one hour of flying time (a $199 value).
  • For $599, you get a Bronze flight package (a $1,150 value), which includes four private three-hour lessons with one-hour of flight time per lesson and a pilot’s logbook.

The steadfast instructors and fleet of Slipstream Aviation take their pupils to the skies to whet appetites for altitude or to begin training new pilots. Before taking off on a Super-Sized Discovery Flight, students learn how to perform a preflight inspection of their vehicle and how to taxi the plane to the runway. The pair then ascend into the stratosphere for one hour of flight time, during which the student handles most of the turning and all of the evasive barrel rolls. Alternatively, prospective fliers can sign up for a battery of four three-hour private flight lessons. Each class includes two hours of ground school, including preflight and postflight lessons, and one hour of airtime. Along the way, pupils can keep a journal of their progress and note the phone numbers of attractive passing hang gliders in an included logbook.

Both the discovery flight and flight training take place at the high-flying helm of a Grumman Cheetah, which comes equipped with a Garmin 430 WAAS navigation system and four-place intercom. Customers should keep the air school’s directions handy and follow the day’s blimp traffic to find their way to the airfield.
