This is an experience you would not want to miss! Through an International Exchange Program, three 15/16 yr old French students, Nathan, Philippe, and Allan (hosted by families on the Crystal Coast) had an extensive tour of workings of the Southern Air at MRH, by AviationTechnician Dave. On a Sunday morning before church, pilot Robert flew them over the Cape... More

This experience was an awesome addition to our family vacation. I can't think of a better and more economical way to see several islands and iconic scenes (Cape Lookout lighthouse and wild horses on Shackleford Banks) from up above. My teens were awestruck at all the natural beauty and just the overall small plane flight experience. The pilot provided some... More

We had been looking at doing this air your prior to our vacation but didn't know for sure if it was what we wanted. Don't hesitate to book a trip! We did the 30 min tour and wish we would have done an hour. AMAZING!

We booked a one hour tour over the Crystal Coast only one day in advance. The small airport in Beaufort is well appointed and staffed with efficient and friendly people. 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!

I have been wanting to do this air tour for a long time and finally did this past Sunday. It was the best thing I have ever done at the beach in the 40 years I have been going there. Robert, our pilot, was just wonderful. Very good and careful. I watched him pre flight the plane and he did... More

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.
