The Elinor Smith Flight, in Kentucky

If you're going to be visiting Kentucky, why not stop by Aero Tech in Lexington and buy yourself an Elinor Smith flight. Okay, it's a bit of a misnomer, as the flight they take you on is in Kentucky, and you don't fly under any bridges, but hey, it's the principle of the thing!

Her's the ad on their website:

In 1928, Elinor Smith flew under four Manhattan bridges at the age of 17. The Mayor grounded her for 10 days. This flight is uniquely tailored for women as flighty as Elinor. No, we won't be flying under any bridges, but you will fly in a modern airplane, with an FAA certificated flight instructor, who will give you a guided lesson and a breathtakingly beautiful flight.

If you are a lady with a sense of adventure, you will sit in the pilot seat and actually fly. This hour long adventure includes 20-30 minutes flight and a digital photo of you in the pilot seat - thumbs-up, or course!

Cost $99 a flight.

Go for it!
