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 $80, you get a discovery flight lesson at SunState Aviation Flight School, located at Kissimmee Gateway Airport (a $165 value).
SunState Aviation Flight School’s FAA-certified instructors, including several FAA Gold Seal recipients, specialize in accelerated flight training and teach prospective pilots in a fully insured and well-maintained aircraft. After scheduling their discovery flight lessons, students receive a link to a computerized ground lesson, which must be completed before the hands-on tutorial. Then, one sky walker and one instructor hop aboard a Cessna 172 outfitted with the latest cockpit technology and neon rims. During the half-hour sky session, students do about 80 percent of the flying as well as taxiing, taking off, and determining their own pilot nicknames. Aeronauts soar over the central Florida area and, depending on air traffic, may get a bird's-eye view of area attractions as the instructor provides ongoing tutelage and lands the plane at the end of the lesson. Pupils interested in obtaining a pilot's license can check out SunState's accelerated flight-training courses and selection of crystal-studded flying goggles.
Though SunState Aviation Flight School sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still represents the best deal available.
