We had a lovely flight with Richard and really enjoyed the different perspective. My family is from Down East but this was a great way to experience the region and... More

It was great! Well worth the money, professional, easy to schedule and fun. The pilot was very knowledgable of the area we flew over and made us feel very comfortable and safe. It was so cool to see the coast and all the places I like to fish from the air. Great experience!

My new wife and I enjoyed an amazing flight over Eastern North Carolina after our wedding. We were piloted by Braxton, who was a true professional, and enjoyed the sunset over the banks with no concerns at all! His knowledge of the region was impeccable, and accuracy in weather tracking and flight plan were spot on. Thank you Sir! We... More

Had a beautiful flight over the coast after our wedding and it was absolutely breath taking. The airport was neat and immaculate, our pilot Braxton was a delight and very knowledgeable of the area and history below us. We will definitely be scheduling another tour very soon.

One of the things my husband and I looked forward to the most during our mini-vacation was our hour long site seeing flight of the Crystal Coast with Southern Air at Beaufort, NC. We were able to adjust the timing at the last minute due to the forecast of pending rain. That was the last good thing to happen on... More
