Outstanding! Fantastic

Great folks. Friendly arrangements made by Vickie and two excellent pilots! Our boys age 17 and 15 had a great experience. The length was perfect. Great photo ops as well.

Infazal, our pilot, was great! We have vacationed in BarHarbor yearly for a decade, but have never experienced it by air. Traveling with two teenagers and visiting the same spot can be a challenge when trying to find something new and exciting to do with them. I stopped by the ticket booth alone the previous day and was welcomed by... More

Staff was friendly and informative, patiently answering plenty of questions before this nervous nelly boarded. The pilot did a fine job of pointing out the landmarks, with flair and personality. A smooth ride for a four-seater, too. You don't get very far when taking a 15-minute tour...I recommend taking a longer one!

There were 6 of us on this adventure. When I called and talked to Vickie...she set it up so that we went in 2 planes at the same time!! None of us had ever flown in a Cessna before. 2 of us even got to fly the planes and the youngest even got to land the one he was in.... More

Wonderful pilot with great personality (think his name was Ben). The plane was small but comfortable and you were able to see everything. I even had a chance to pilot the plane for a few minutes. Just gorgeous views. This was just absolutely an incredible experience and I would love to do it again!

The pilot for these flights over Bar Harbor and Mount Desert may be young, but he is loaded with personality and common sense. He made us feel welcome and assured us that the flight would be safe. The plane is small, but not too uncomfortable. You get fabulous views of he Maine Coast. He even let one of the passengers... More

My husband and I took the 75 minute Lighthouse Tour and enjoyed every minute of it. Our pilot was Infazal. He was polite, informative, attentive, and well qualified. The reservation process was easy. Vicky is very helpful and we basically set our own time for the flight. Check-in was easy. There was some fog around the area which kept us... More

Four months before visiting Maine I contacted Scenic flights of Acadia and Vicki was absolutely gracious in responding to all my emails and questions, even in the middle of the harsh Maine winter. In July 2015 we took the "All Acadia" flight and our pilot was Ben who could not have been any better. He let our 6 year old... More

Infazal was our Pilot a very knowledgeable and experienced one at that. All the staff were very friendly and talked to us like we were friends, not visitors. The wife and I took the 1 hour scenic flight and I returned the following day to take the hour and a half lesson. Experience of a lifetime ! If you miss... More

This company donated a gift certificate to a non-profit for one of their flights. My partner and I were lucky enough to win it at the auction. We chose a day for the flight, called for our reservation and were delighted with the phone conversation. Today was the day. We went down and enjoyed meeting their reception lady, having a... More
