The nationwide "group coupon" company Groupon features discounted gift certificates that, after purchase, can be redeemable at local spots for various goods. The company covers major urban areas in Alaska and usually features a great deal every week. This week is no exception.

Groupon presents Southcentral Alaskans with this little gem: Flight Lessons with Above Alaska Aviation.  

Learn to fly with a FAA-certified bush pilot during a 40-minute introductory flight for only $89, a 56 percent discount from the original $200 value.

Be advised there is some fine print. According to Groupon the coupon

  • Expires Sep 15, 2013
  • Limit 1 per person, may buy 2 additional as gifts. Reservation required; subject to weather. 24hr cancellation notice required or fee up to Groupon price may apply. Must be 8 or older. Must sign waiver; if under 18 years old, must have parent or legal guardian sign waiver. Valid for season 5/1/13-9/15/13.

The offer expires soon, so make your purchase ASAP.
