It was back in August 2001, when the 2-seater airplane was parked smack in the middle of Willowbrook Mall, about 10 minutes away from my hometown of Passaic.

The tag said fill out this simple form, and for $35, you can actually fly this aircraft for a 1/2 hour discovery flight (along with a pilot, in the co-pilot seat, of course) – a prospect way too tempting for 19-yr old me and then 15-yr old Moshe Azer.

Did we do it?

Is that really a question 🙂 ?

Let’s just say that my pre-marriage album still gets the most use by my kids wanting to see Tatty and his friend flying a plane!


Looking for the most unique Bar Mitzva gift you can give someone?

How about this??

While prices have risen over the last 16 years, this DEAL is HUNDREDS of $$$ off the regular price for this type of activity!

Give him this 1-hour flying lesson where they can actually fly a plane, from age 13!

It sounds scarier than it is, and from personal experience, I can promise you it’s fun, and that the recipient they won’t be returning this one to the seforim store to exchange 🙂


GreatFrum TIPS:

  • Make it even more special for him with the second option, which gives a video of the event to remember!


  • Let his father join for just a few dollars more, with the third option!


  • You have 180 days, or 6 months (!) to use the gift certificate but at this price, we can pretty much guarantee the deal will not last! Get as many as you need now for the next few months upcoming Bar Mitzvahs.

CLICK HERE for the deal, on a Bar Mitzvah gift he’s GUARANTEED to appreciate and not forget who gave it to him!
