The Deal

Soar over scenic areas of Los Angeles with this flight deal from Encore Flight Academy in Van Nuys. For $89, take control of the cockpit and receive a 40-minute flight lesson from a FAA-certified pilot, regularly $200. Types of planes used for flight instruction may include Piper, Cessna, Diamond and Cirrus.

Take the lesson day or night, including during sunrise and sunset. Students will admire the iconic views of the Hollywood sign, Malibu coastline, downtown LA and more. Go home with a logbook, instructor endorsement and digital photo to remember the experience.

Or go for the 90-minute option, which includes 30 minutes in a classroom, 20 minutes in a high-tech flight simulator, and the 40-minute flight lesson for $140, regularly $380. The classroom session teaches about basic aerodynamics of flight, airplane control and cockpit instruments. With this second deal, students can use the simulator to  experience conditions that are otherwise impossible to duplicate during regular training.

Both lessons can be taken individually, or bring a friend to participate as a passenger. Click "Buy Now" to purchase either deal.
