Choose your departure time (based on general operating hours) and VIP option, then head to New Orleans Aerial Tours and Flight Training, where you’ll meet your pilot and take a window seat for your invigorating aerial adventure! The small plane accommodates up to three passengers, perfect for an intimate couple’s excursion or a trip with friends. Due to the flexible nature of the tour, you are invited to request certain sights.
As you take off, watch the city fall away and marvel at the striking juxtaposition of urban landscape and wetlands territory. Soar above the historic French Quarter and hear about some of its architectural highlights. Then head to the Central Business District to whirl around the massive Mercedes-Benz Superdome — home to the New Orleans Saints NFL team and renowned as a key shelter during Hurricane Katrina — and view the bustling 2-mile wharf at the Port of New Orleans.
You’ll then cut away from the city to witness the enormous, integrated bayou system that pours from the Mississippi River. See the magnificent wetlands, home to abundant wildlife and Cajun communities, before returning to your departure point. Throughout your VIP flight, your professional pilot will share fascinating facts and histories, point out the city’s most iconic landmarks, and explain the area’s unique topography.
