Great experience
Jul 2021 • Couples
People were really friendly, both in the communication planning the activity as well as in person. The entrance was a little hard to find but everything that I asked for had been taken care of! We did the 60 min flight and so we had ample time to fly around the bayou, downtown as well as uptown. Great pricing (in my view) as well, would def recommend it!

An Amazing Time
Jun 2021
Great!!! Amazing tour of the city of New Orleans, the Mississippi River, and Lake Pontchartrain. Very knowledgeable history of the area including information about
the devastating carnage left by Hurricane Katrina. The pilot pointed out places we could visit that she thought we might enjoy while we are here, that was very helpful. We learned the history of some buildings which was very interesting. The Mississippi River was wider than I thought.

This is our first flight and it was so comfortable it was unreal. Loved it, plan on flying more.

First time experience
Apr 2021 • Couples
This was a great experience.! I’ve never flown before, and I thought this would have been a wonderful experience up until I got in the air… I got sooo panicky and was ready to come down, IMMEDIATELY!! if it wasn’t for my husband being with me, I don’t know what I would have done. We got great pictures though. Lol. The pilot was awesome.! The ride was smooth as butter, it was just (ME!!)

We had a really lovely time, we’re still buzzing about being in that little plane! This trip was a gift for my partner’s 30th birthday and it is definitely something he will remember forever! Our pilot was super nice and knowledgeable. We felt so safe and in awe! Would definitely recommend this to anyone!

At one point we mentioned that we were flying over our house and the pilot turned the plane around so we could get a better look! Such a sweet guy!

EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE
Nov 2020
Excellent! Nick was our pilot and he was phenomenal. We were able to leave a little early so we got to catch so many beautiful views on a super clear day. It was easily one of the BEST experiences in my life and I can't wait to do it again when I come back to NOLA. Really incredible and the location was ideal for us! HIGHLY recommend, and this is coming from a New Yorker so you know it HAS to be a great time.
