Flying is a lot like having a staring contest: even with utter concentration, you’ll never be better at it than birds. Go toe-to-beak with our winged companions with today's Groupon to Solberg Aviation, located at Solberg Airport in Readington. Choose between the following options:
- For $34, you get a 15-minute introductory flight lesson (a $69 value).
- For $49, you get a 30-minute introductory flight lesson (a $99 value).
Solberg Aviation combines FAA-certified flight instructors and a fleet of top-notch Cessna aircraft to provide hands-on flight instruction to aspiring aeronauts of all skill levels. Each introductory flight lesson begins by acquainting would-be wingers with the flying fundamentals during a short preflight briefing. Once students have absorbed the preflight curriculum, they'll put their knowledge to the test during a 15- or 30-minute assisted-control flying lesson, during which they'll take the controls, navigate the skies, and behold nearby formations of rocks that spell out “Help: Cannot say ‘no’ to rocks salesmen.”
The cloud-surfing experience takes place in a four-seated Cessna 172, which means you can treat two of your closest friends to an elevated view of your triumph over gravity. For the enthusiast-turned-future-pilot, Solberg also offers student and private pilot-certification courses, which feature extensive ground and flight training.
