Booked this for my father and brother when they visited this June. They absolutely loved it. The pilot was very informative, the views above Oregon Inlet are amazing. I did this myself last year as well. An amazing way to see the OBX.

Was on a Summer 2018 beach house vacation with another family in Nags Head, NC and I discovered most of the people had not flowing in small aircraft (Cessna 172/177s). So I booked 2 airplanes for 2 adults and 4 young children and they were all very excited to have experienced this. Pilots were friendly and professional and ground staff was very accommodating. Value was outstanding. Only complaint is the GPS friendly directions in the e-mail confirmation took us to the wrong side of the airport. Just go to the Aquarium and the airport is at the end of the street.

Yes. It was that good. My wife and I did the discovery flight. Awesome experience. Our pilot was a young local guy. He was extremely professional and very laidback. We used headsets to talk to each other. He would show us the sights and explain a little history about each one.

Will recommend this tour to anyone. It’s great to see the OBX from the air.

Luke took me flying around OBX and described much of the history of the area. Unbelievable experience - I recommend it to anyone with a love of geography. Thanks Luke and Jenny! I hope to fly with you the next time we visit.

We did the Discovery flight and enjoyed it. I have never been in a small aircraft and was a little nervous about it. The pilot did a great job! Seeing the Outer Banks sites from 1000FT in the air was great experience.
