Q:

Does the 6 month time limit start at the purchase date or when you print out the certificate? Thank you.

Kathryn B.  asked on  Nov 28, 2012

A:

The six month expiration date is from the time you purchase the coupon. If you don't plan on using the coupon within six months, I wouldn't recommend purchasing it.

Q:

Can you fly any day of the week or is it only good for certain days or times? Do I have to print the receipt or can I just shoe it on my phone? One more question, do you offer parachuting?

Joann H.  asked on  Nov 28, 2012

A:

You can fly 7 days per week, we would appreciate your bringing your copy of coupon if you have it. If you have it on phone, that works to. We do not do sky diving, Our dispatchers do that but not here, they will know where to go to do jumping.

Q:

How do I retrieve this? I would like to purchase it as a gift and place the tickets/ information / whatnot in a stocking. Is that possible?

Courtney W.  asked on  Nov 27, 2012

A:

Once you purchase the coupon you can print it and then use it as a gift certificate as a stocking stuffer. Once you do that it is good for six months and all the person getting it has to do is call us and schedule the flight.

Q:

I'd like to purchase this as a gift for someone. Will I be able to fly in the plane with him (as a passenger) if I buy the groupon? I'd rather not buy it and then be left on the ground while he's up in the air!

A:

This flight is an introductory flight lesson in a two place airplane to expose a person to flying. If you want to ride along, it can be done, but we would have to use a four place airplane and it is more expensive. To ride along on lesson it would cost $20 extra. Also if you decide to do that you need to tell the dispatcher you need the larger airplane when you set up the flight.

Q:

Will the student have an opportunity to actually take the controls on this introductory lesson?

Jan B.  asked on  Nov 26, 2012

A:

Absolutly, that is the whole object of an Introductory Lesson to show the person flying how much of a trill it is to fly, not just ride along.

Q:

One more question:) I just bought two of them (one for me and one for my brother as a Christmas gift). I placed the order by selecting "2" in the quantity field, after I placed the order I noticed that on the site there was a separate link for purchasing one as a gift. I just want to make sure that it doesn't look like I was buying two for me when it said you can't. One is definitely a gift. Can you please confirm that my order is okay. Thanks!

Zachary H.  asked on  Nov 26, 2012

A:

We set the paramiters but Groupon sets how they accept purchases, to the best of my knowledge there should be no problem with your purchase. Dennis

Q:

Just to confirm 100%.... No previous flight experience is required?

Zachary H.  asked on  Nov 26, 2012

A:

We want people who haven't flown before so we can show them how much fun it is to learn to fly.

Dennis B.  from  Merchant  replied on  Nov 26, 2012

Q:

If I buy this for me and then as a gift for one other person (maybe two other people), can we all come out the same day and train together? I know that the flight is obviously one at a time.

Zachary H.  asked on  Nov 26, 2012

A:

No problem, just call and schedule the two, you can do both at the same time or one after another. Just call and tell the dispatcher what you want to do and when and we will try and set you up at your convenience.

Q:

I would like to purchase, but can I schedule my flight immediately? I can only schedule it for Dec 20-23, as my son is going out of the country, and it would be a gift for him.

Q:

what kind of plane is this and when does this deal expire?didn't see the usual '' you have so many days/hours left to purchase--need to know how long i can think about( for a gift for my husband's 50th b-day)///////thank you!!!!

lorie v.  asked on  Nov 26, 2012

A:

The airplane is a Two Place trainer, perfect for a person who wants to experience what it is like to really learn to fly. This deal runs for three days and once purchased the coupon is good for 6 months, giving you plenty of time to schedule the flight at your convenience.
