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

This is the best Birthday Present I could ever get. I've been to the Beaufort/Morehead City area for over 20 years, and this, by far was the best time I ever had. Our pilot was Robert and he was superb!! Pointing out not only the obvious landmarks, but helping us see dolphins, schools of fish, the ponies and more. He... More

Very well done! We have been coming here on vacation for about twenty years, and this is the first time that we have done this. All three children went for the tour (only three passengers per flight) and they all had the same reaction--"Awesome!" The pilot, Naomi, was ver personable and well trained. We look forward to doing this again... More
