The flight over the OBX was real fun and we were able to see a lot of historic sites and get a perspective of the area. The plane ride was comfortable and the pilot was very good. Smooth and enjoyable flight.

This was well worth the price. We took the 30 minute flight around Kill Devil Hills down to Oregon Inlet. We got to see the island we have loved and visited for a long time from a much different perspective. Employees were professional and polite....More
