We booked the 1 hour flight, and were able to fly over our homes in Sisters, then over the Cascades to the beautiful lakes on the backside. Beautiful waterfalls, Deschutes River, Pilot Butte, lava...

Leading edge offers a number of different tours, all around central Oregon. They can also plan a custom tour for you if need be. But the staff is extremely friendly, professional, and courteous, with seemingly a ton of knowledge of both the area and the aircraft you fly in. The prices are a tad steep, but in the end its...

I reserved 2 seats on the morning traffic copter, one of them was a birthday present for my 9 year old grandson. It was an amazing flight on a beautiful morning. Besides the traffic reports, we had lots of time to sight see all around the area. Adam was a great pilot, and showed us many points of interest. My... More

I don't think I would have been... More
