Q:

My son is 13. Is he too young for this? Also, my husband weighs more than 180 lbs. would he be able to fly with my son? My son weighs less than 120lbs. Thanks!

Mary E.  asked on  Aug 1, 2012

A:

Sorry for the delay! Your son is eligible since the Fine Print just requires that customers be 10 or older. Please call the business at (727) 461-5229 to see if your husband and son can fly together.

Q:

I was interested in getting my license to fly, but was unsure how to get started. Is this a good way to begin?

Matthew G.  asked on  Aug 1, 2012

A:

Hi Matthew, This is a great way to begin. This lesson will count towards getting your license and you will fly in the same airplane that you would train in. You will also go up with a Certified Flight Instructor who can give you all the information you need to get started. Please let me know if you have any further questions! Thank you

Q:

My son has expressed an interest in learning how to fly. He will be 15 in November. I thought I would purchase this Groupon for him for his birthday. Is there an age requirement? Dori

Dori G.  asked on  Jul 31, 2012

A:

Hi Dori, Your son is the perfect age to start training. Students can solo at 16 and receive their license at 17 years old. Taking lessons at 15 would give him a great start.
