I told our pilot Randy this was a little bit better than excellent! What a great view, and what a great pilot, we had an awesome time.

We've lived on MDI for 20 years and have always wanted to do this, but never got around to it, so I decided for my wife's 60th birthday bash we'd take the tour. Her whole surprise party was based around taking the flight, and then having her realize when we flew over our house that this bash was going on.... More

Our family took two flights here - one with Jim and one with Randy. We were very pleased with both, and the overall experience. Would definitely recommend for a new perspective on Bar Harbor.

Bar Harbour was our final destination in a 10 day tour of Maine. My wife decided to treat me ( a past pilots licence holder ) to a tour of Acadia's lighthouses of about 50 mins. Very professional, sufficiently informative, very friendly and altogether, thoroughly enjoyable. In reality you see a huge amount which is extremely difficult to see from... More

Our nine year old flew in the front seat with Randy, our pilot. The pilot's capabilities were fine. He seemed to have a script that he stuck with describing what was to be seen. However he did not even ask our grandson his name or did not even talk to him. This kid is very interested in flying. Randy should... More

Today we had the most fabulous flight! We scheduled a custom flight to the Deer Isle/ Stonington area. Randy was our pilot and was wonderful. We had a flight scheduled at 10am, but Randy called at 6:45 this morning to reschedule later in the day because there was too much fog at 10am. The flight was absolutely fabulous with Randy... More

We really had a nice flight over the many lighthouses of Acadia National Park and on our way back to Trenton airport, over Fort Knox. Groundpersonal was very friendly and helpful with us. Alan, our pilot was very good, fliying from one lighthouse to another one. It was really the best tour we enjoyed since our arrival in New England.... More

Took a sunset flight for 50 minutes and it happened to be a super moon night also. Jeremy was our pilot and he gave us a great tour and lots of information and history of the Mount Desert Island area. There are different prices for the time in air and we chose a flight that took us to see six... More
