Sure you've seen New York, or San Francisco, or maybe Cleveland. But have you ever seen it from 1,500 feet up? I'm talking about from the front seat of a small single engine aircraft. It's now easier than you ever dreamed.

With a new promotion released yesterday, the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) is inviting people to come try piloting a plane themselves for very affordable rates.

Cooped up all winter? No better time than now to get out and experience our beautiful world. “Whether you’ve dreamed of flying an airplane, or just want to view nature from a different perspective, taking an introductory flight is a fun, easy way to say goodbye to cabin fever,” says Craig Fuller, president of the nonprofit AOPA.
