Our Wears Valley Tour is a one of a kind experience! This flight is dominated by spectacular mountain views from the very start! Upon departure you will travel over historic downtown Sevierville with the Smoky Mountain National Park in the distance. After Sevierville we continue along over the rolling foothills of the Smoky Mountains and over the strip in Pigeon Forge before getting out away from civilization over Pine Mountain. As you climb in altitude following the terrain up to the crest of Cove Mountain at the National Park boundary line you will be met with spectacular views of the beautiful Wears Valley area. Continuing along Wears Valley the flight travels north bound over the east end of Waldens Creek and the foothills of Bluff Mountain before returning over the Tennessee Valley to the Scenic Heliport. The Wears Valley tour is a 36 mile flight with an average flight time of 18 minutes.
