What can these be used for?
Well, that’s really up to you, after all you
own it. Conventional wisdom would say that you come by the flight school and
use it there. Boarding passes for intro flights are used for, well, intro flights.
Boarding passes for specific dollar amounts can be applied toward flying /
instruction / simulator time (you do know we have an IFR simulator don’t
you?) or general merchandise from charts and headsets to SFS logo wear!
Wow that sounds great! Tell me about these intro flights!
That’s not a question, but
okay. Intro flights come in 20-25 minute and 1 hour varieties. What’s the
difference between them? About 35-40 minutes.
Would these make a good gift?
When you come to use your intro flight, you’ll get a preflight briefing and
then we’ll do a walk around of the plane to get you familiar. Even if it’s your
very first flight, you’ll get to actually fly the plane, from takeoff to
landing. Don’t worry though – our experienced flight instructors are there
with you (duh?). After the flight you’ll be debriefed.
Absolutely! It’s the perfect
gift for any occasion – graduation, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, Baptism, bris,
Halloween, Thanksgiving, Columbus Day, birthday, Independence Day, Flag Day,
Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Boxing Day, Labor Day, Labour Day, Tuesday. We
guarantee it’s a better idea than getting your wife a vacuum cleaner (not
actually a guarantee).
Is there a limit to how much I can make the boarding pass out for?
Don’t ask silly questions.
When can they be used?
They’re good from the moment
you get it until six months after the date of issue. What are the chances that
something this cool would sit unused for that long anyway?
Can I redeem it for cash?
If you want, however it
won't be in official US currency. You can trade em in for "Superior Flight School
Bucks", but even we don't accept those. You're probably better off with Monopoly
money, so really, what's the point?
Disclaimer: Flight certificates should not be taken internally. After
use, if you experience side effects lasting longer than four hours, consult
your doctor as this may be a sign of a serious medical condition. Seriously
though. Don’t eat it. What are you still reading this for? It's obvious this disclaimer
is a joke (unless you actually do something kooky, upon which case it becomes legally
Go get one!
