What You'll Get
Today's deal makes you the one in the sky that everybody is pointing at with childlike excitement using their childlike hands: $99 gets you a one-hour introductory flight lesson with Step Up Aviation, normally $199. Get behind the controls of a light-sport or 4-seated aircraft and soar like a honeybee into the azure firmament.
Your introductory flight lesson begins on the ground with an inspection of the aircraft; your FAA-certified instructor will show you how to check the aircraft and make sure it's flight-worthy before taking you on a one-hour instructional flight. While in the air, you'll get a multi-course sampling of the pilot experience, from preflight checks to taxiing, takeoff, and at least one landing demonstration. Plus, you'll get to take the controls during the flight and learn a few basic maneuvers. If you have a particular interest in any one aspect of flying, your instructor will tailor the lesson to your request. Should you decide to continue with lessons and become a certified flying ace, this deal, good for flyers aged 15 and up, is loggable toward your requisite airtime.
Your lesson is sure to be more impressive than the other ways you probably travel (river boat, foot, train, commercial airlines, supercar, etc.), while offering a spectacular view of the city that isn't from the ground.
