My flight instructor, "Bubba," was amazing. He obviously had a passion for flying and teaching, which was great as I was eager to learn as much as possible. Bubba also knew the area very well and was able to point out interesting things along the way. Great experience overall. I would recommend it to anyone looking for something interesting to do, wanting to learn more about flight, or get a unique perspective of the area.

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 $139, you get an introductory flight lesson (a $252 value) at Wings Aloft, located on Perimeter Road South at King County International Airport's Boeing Field.

In business since 1977, Wings Aloft harbors a squad of friendly, experienced instructors that hold years of aeronautic experience and are fully equipped to pass on their stratospheric savvy to aspirant aviators in the introductory flight lesson. After a pre-flight briefing, you and a professional teacher will take to the skies for a series of flight techniques, including take-off, in-flight maneuvers, radio communications, microwaving at high altitudes, and landing, as well as proper runway, taxi, and post-flight procedures. After your jaunt, you’ll officially record your first pilot hours in a logbook, cementing your place in the sky kingdom and your pledge to keep the pilots’ secret, firm handshake under wraps.

Participants must be at least 14 years old. Flights have a 395 lb. weight limit.
