Before airplanes made flight possible, the only advantages humans held over birds were teeth and the ability to build nests out of bricks. Establish aerial dominance over birds with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a one-hour introductory flight lesson from Smith Field Air Service at the Smith Field Airport on West Ludwig Road (a $59 value).

Smith Field Air Service’s CFI-rated instructors impart aspiring aviators with piloting knowhow and transform the cockpit into a classroom as student and teacher take flight. The introductory flight begins with a 30-minute ground session, as flight instructors acquaint amateur aeronauts with basic piloting principles and perform a preflight inspection to evict high-flying hitchhikers. Once airships have been cleared to sail the high skies, pilot and protégé will raise anchor and chart a course for the clouds. During the 30-minute flight, prospective pilots will have a chance to command the controls and perform basic flight maneuvers, such as the wing-tip toe-tap.

Students keen on stratospheric conquest can pursue pilot certificates through Smith Field Air Service’s Sport-Pilot, Private-Pilot, and Instrument-Pilot training courses.
