Without planes, private citizens would be unable to see what the sun looks like up close or independently verify the cotton content of clouds. Personally scout the skies with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a one-hour flight experience at the Westwind School of Aeronautics (a $199.70 total value). The experience includes the following:

  • 15 minutes of flight-simulator training (a $17.25 value)
  • 45 minutes of flying time (a $96.75 value)
  • Flight instruction with pre- and post-flight briefing (a $76.70 value)
  • A logbook (a $9 value)<p>

Westwind School of Aeronautics’s company of experienced wingmen instructs fledgling fliers in the ways of piloting, preparing them for voyages into the vasty steep. Instructors begin the experience by strapping students in for a 15-minute stint in the flight simulator, which realistically recreates the cockpit of a Cessna 172, down to the Garmin G1000 glass cockpit instruments and faithfully emulated turn signals. The duo then steps into one of the school’s 19 Cessna 172s to take the training to the skies, where the student will experience the delicate art of aircraftery at the gentle guidance of their instructor. A logbook waits to be filled with the details of the inaugural flight, including trajectories, altitudes, and the number of the cute 747 that asked you to the homecoming dance.
