From catapulting flaming soldiers over castle walls to sitting on active geysers, humans have long been fixated on flying through the air. Experience the wonder of flight for yourself with today’s Groupon: for $85, you get sightseeing flight over Little Rock from Sparrow Flying Club, LLC (up to a $165 value).
With an emphasis on safety, this membership-supported aviation organization gives aeronautical aficionados an inside glimpse into the world of flight with a breathtaking sightseeing tour of central Arkansas. Aspiring geologists can do a panoramic survey Little Rock under the guidance of expert pilots in a single-engine Cessna with enough room for three altitude-seekers. Soar high above the state capital, watch the sun set over the Ozarks, or confirm the existence of clouds on your gravity-defying excursion.
For sightseers who see further flights in their crystal ball, Sparrow Flying Club offers lessons that can be applied to a sport or private pilot’s license. Interested undergraduates can book their own discovery flight to determine if winged migration is just for birds.
Sparrow Flying Club, LLC
Though supported by a tight-knit community of members, Sparrow Flying Club opens its cockpit doors to the public for scenic flights and pilot training. Its fleet of primarily Cessna aircraft ranges from simple, two-seat sport planes to more complex aircraft; patrons can rent them out for private use, or join an instructor in the cockpit to train for either a private pilot license or a sport license, which requires fewer hours.
