Pilots are the cowboys of the air, roaming the wide-open skies and herding children's runaway balloons. Giddy up, up, and away with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a discovery flight lesson at Top-Notch Aviation, which operates out of the Washington County Airport in Washington (a $199 value).

Seasoned flight instructors at Top-Notch Aviation introduce beginning pilots to the basics of aeronautical travel during private, two-hour discovery flight lessons. Each session begins with a 60-minute classroom training, during which students soak up the basic principles of flight, aircraft control, and proper safety techniques, such as looking both ways before crossing a busy rainbow intersection. Pupils then spend 30 minutes getting to know their gravity-defying steed, a Piper Cherokee Warrior airplane. Next, amateur pilots take to the skies with their certified instructor, spending approximately 45 minutes at the helm of the 160-horsepower plane, time that can be counted toward Private Pilot Certificate requirements. After completing their airtime, each student receives a certificate celebrating their flight, a catalog of pilot supplies, and a wall poster or seed mosaic of an aircraft cockpit.

Top-Notch Aviation, LLC

Operating in conjunction with Ohio Valley Flight Service, Top-Notch Aviation guides fledgling aviators into the skies for odysseys ranging from introductory-level discovery flights to commercial-pilot training. The band of certified flight instructors makes its nest at Washington County Airport, an all-weather operation with a runway that stretches to 5,004 feet—long enough for planes to execute proper takeoffs, land safely, and shake off stray clouds from their propellers.
