Today we had the most fabulous flight! We scheduled a custom flight to the Deer Isle/ Stonington area. Randy was our pilot and was wonderful. We had a flight scheduled at 10am, but Randy called at 6:45 this morning to reschedule later in the day because there was too much fog at 10am. The flight was absolutely fabulous with Randy banking toward exactly what we wanted to see. We got wonderful pictures from the air, and even got to see a B17 bomber on display at the airport. To top everything off, Randy gave us the smoothest landing I've ever had. Thank you.

We really had a nice flight over the many lighthouses of Acadia National Park and on our way back to Trenton airport, over Fort Knox.

Groundpersonal was very friendly and helpful with us.

Alan, our pilot was very good, fliying from one lighthouse to another one.

It was really the best tour we enjoyed since our arrival in New England.

Thanks to Alan and the ladies on the ground.

Took a sunset flight for 50 minutes and it happened to be a super moon night also. Jeremy was our pilot and he gave us a great tour and lots of information and history of the Mount Desert Island area. There are different prices for the time in air and we chose a flight that took us to see six lighthouses and surrounding area. for 50 minutes. You can talk to the pilot with the headset on and take as many photos as you want. This company is very accommodating and they really want you to have an awesome time.I highly recommend them. Thanks for the great flight Jeremy!!!!

My son had bought me a "Discover Flying" experience at Scenic Flights of Acadia. After a clearly-presented 30-minute ground briefing by Randy, my pilot, I climbed into the cockpit and off we went. Randy was a great teacher, very competent and experienced, and instructed me from his side of the cockpit as I ascended, descended, performed turns around a couple of islands, and finally headed back to the airport (he landed the plane, of course). I couldn't be happier with my first "hands on" flight.
