Thank you for such a great lesson for my son. It's hard to please teenagers and my son was ecstatic about his lesson. I hope to get him back in to get his license.

What You'll Get

The human obsession with flight stems from a refusal to accept limitations and an intense desire to finally move out of gravity's basement. Claim your own airspace with today's Groupon: for $119, you get 90 minutes of flight training—45 minutes on the ground (a $37.50 value) and 45 minutes in the air (a $126.75 value)—plus registration (a $10 value), a logbook (a $5.75 value), and in-flight digital photos (a $25 value) at Sonoma Valley Flying Club (a $205 total value).

The experienced instructors at Sonoma Valley Flying Club guide students through ground training before escorting them through the scenic skies over the rolling hills of wine country. Plane whisperers first explain basic plane mechanics, control functions, and what shade of bomber jacket goes best with most complexions. The Bellanca Citabria plane's simple systems, electronics, and radios ease the learning process for beginning flyers, as do its tandem seating, stick controls, and responsive handling when it comes time to climb. To ensure that aerial adventures are as smooth as a butter sculptor's hands, the Bellanca Citabria undergoes a thorough inspection by a certified airplane mechanic every 100 flight hours. The small, local nature of Sonoma Skypark allows pilots-in-training to avoid the traffic jams of larger airports.

Today's deal also includes a temporary registration fee, a logbook to record the adventure and locations of any midflight UFOs, and digital photos of the flight taken from inside the cockpit. See a list of frequently asked questions for more information.
