What You'll Get

From catapulting flaming soldiers over castle walls to sitting on active geysers, humans have long been fixated on flying through the air. Absorb the wonderment of flight with today’s Groupon: for $74, you get one Discovery Flight airplane-flying lesson from Veracity Aviation, launching from the New Braunfels Airport (a $149 value). After getting acclimated with the aircraft on the ground, customers can choose either to be at the controls while they cruise the skies with an instructor, or to sit back and relax as the instructor directs a short post-lesson tour.

Discovery flights and tours, which take place in a cozy Piper Tomahawk airplane, are ideal for anyone considering the aerial career path of a pilot. The lesson begins with 15–30 minutes of ground training and includes a variety of preflight procedures. Following this earthbound orientation, you'll take to the skies for 30 minutes (from startup to shutdown) of hands-on, instructor-guided flying, learning how to turn, climb, descend, and read the GPS system with real-time satellite weather. If you aren't interested in piloting the Piper Tomahawk, you can perch above the skies, crying "Nevermore!" with an aerial tour instead. During the hands-free experience, you will float above the earth's crust for a customized tour of the city, scoping out views of your house, the Guadalupe River, downtown New Braunfels, Canyon Lake, Texas State University, or anywhere else that strikes your flying fancy. Whether piloting or passengering, you'll be treated to a variety of sublime natural views.

Veracity Aviation is primarily a helicopter services company, providing instruction, tours, and maintenance to chopper-happy chopper-choppers in the San Antonio and Austin areas. With today's deal, you'll get a crack at Veracity's two-person plane, becoming one with the machine as it becomes one with the sky.
