Studies have shown that traveling to a high altitude greatly improves one’s odds of completing a corn maze, finding a parking spot, and befriending a lonely weather balloon. Gain a new, lofty perspective with today's Groupon: for $187, you get a one-hour introductory flight lesson (a $365 value) from Travel Express Aviation. Flights take off from DuPage Airport in West Chicago.

Travel Express Aviation provides hands-on flight instruction to would-be pilots of all experience levels. An FAA-certified flight instructor guides patrons through a half-hour of ground training followed by a half-hour of in-flight instruction. Sky captains-in-training take the helm of a high-tech, dual Garmin-navigation screen Cirrus SR22 aircraft, recently named the Best of the Best in the personal-aircraft category of luxury skyware by the Robb Report. Every Cirrus plane includes a standard parachute that will safely guide the craft and its inhabitants to terra firma in case of an emergency or an emergency hot-dog craving.
