This is the second time I have taken a flight with Redtail Aviation. The first time almost five years ago, they were really accommodating taking us out at 6:30 AM, as we had to leave the area that morning. The flight over Canyonlands was amazing and the pilot was great - knowledgeable, funny and eager to have us see everything. We came back in May this year with my son. We decided to add Arches to the trip. Again it was great, although the portion over Arches was not nearly as spectacular as Canyonlands and a bit of an anticlimax. It was nice, but not essential and I would recommend saving your money. In fairness, they actually warned me about this, but I figured "What the heck. My son will never be with me again. So let's go all out." Make no mistake, flights are expensive, wherever they are, particularly when four people are on the flight. However, they have produced some of the memorable experiences of all the many trips we have taken and I don't regret a single one of them. Canyonlands, especially Canyonlands, is one of the places where a flight will really add to you appreciation of how wondrous nature can be and it is also, like many places, the only way to see many parts of it, except through hiking where almost no one but the most fanatical would attempt. So if you can afford it, by all means, do it and I have absolutely no hesitation to recommend Redtail. They will treat you right.
