Contrary to the proverb, happy thoughts don’t make you fly; instead, you’ll need lift, thrust, drag, and nonstop thoughts about dinosaurs. Fuel your next flight through physics, not fleeting emotions, with today’s deal: for $120, you get a one-hour discovery lesson (a $200 value) with Taking Flight. Planes take off from the runway located in Englewood.
Brush up on your birdly knowledge with 15 minutes of preflight classroom prep before lifting off in one of Taking Flight’s meticulously maintained aircrafts. Under the wing of resident aviator Aaron Wexler, you’ll perform the take off and climb, soaring free from earth’s gravitational grip. Each guided turn will strengthen your Cessna-whisperer status until your maiden flight delicately descends during an assisted landing, inevitably reuniting you with the flightless commoners.
If you’re out to simply fulfill a fluttering fantasy but you find your altitudinal appetite humongifies once in the open air, you'll already be one step closer to a license. Take off with today’s deal and experience new thrills exactly unlike running away with a runaway runway model with runny eyeliner. You must call ahead to schedule your flight.
- The pilot couldn't have been more informative, and he made me feel so comfortable taking the stick that I have decided to sign up for flying lessons with him and hopefully realize a lifelong dream to get my pilot's license. – MacClinic, Google Maps
- I debated about taking flying lessons for so long and now my only regret is that I did not start sooner! – gayle s., Yelp
