Flying is the only way to get close enough to a cloud to milk it or to visit your secret sky family. Bolster the bond earthly loved ones just don't understand with today's Groupon: for $80, you get a one-hour introductory flight lesson from Solverson Aviation in Reedsburg (a $160 value).
Founded and run by two passionate pilot brothers, Solverson Aviation instructs potential pilots in the basics of aviation before launching them on a high-flying cloud search. After a half-hour of ground instruction, a pilot lets students shake hands with the cockpit for a half-hour supervised sojourn in the air. Seize control of a Cessna 172, splitting your vision between the control panel and the dropping ground as you propel the miraculous metal tube through the troposphere, spying the luscious landscape and crop-circle haikus strewn below. For those already working on a pilot's license (or those who want to start), this deal allows you to accrue valuable flight time.
