If you’ve still got that ‘wow’ gift to buy for someone, check out this Groupon! For $65, get a Discovery Flight Package at any participating flight school nationwide! Find the school closest to you here. I bought this for my husband for Christmas last year and he did his flight lesson this past spring. He LOVED it, and the kids thought it was super cool to watch Daddy fly a plane! He loved it so much, actually, that he asked me to get it again for him this year. So I did!
Here’s what’s included in the offer:
- One 30- to 40-minute flight lesson with instructor
- Video seminar and 30-minute presentation
- Instruction materials
- Computer-based ground lessons
- Pilot log book
Obviously the coolest part is that you actually get to fly the plane, which my hubby said was much harder than it looks! I love this kind of ‘experience’ gift. So fun and such a great memory! We have lots of pics of him in the plane and the kids watching him take off and land. If you’re wondering how to wrap this, last year I printed out the Groupon and folded it up like a paper airplane, put it in a box and wrapped the box. For a minute there he actually thought that I gave him a paper airplane for Christmas!
This has been one of my husband’s all time favorite gifts, and of course it would be an awesome gift for the ladies, too! If you still need that BIG gift under the tree, definitely check out this deal!
