My wife and I flew the High Cascades Tour. Even though it was January 2nd, the day was clear. At times it felt like we could touch Mt Bachelor and Broken Top. We flew with Colby, truly an amazing pilot. I highly recommend him as well as all the staff at Leading Edge Aviation. They are quite professional. This tour... More

I received this as a present....it is the best present I have ever gotten !!! I took the High Cascades Tour with Jordon as my pilot. Getting to see all the sites from the air is thrilling. I want to go again & again. Jordon was very knowledgeable about the area and it was a joy to fly with him.... More

My husband and I flew with friends from Sisters and fulfilled a long standing wish to see our area from the air. The weather was beautiful! 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...

My wife and I took a helicopter flight from Bend to look at the surrounding area. We flew up the Deschutes River and then to Sun River. The view of the mountains was amazing. As a forty year pilot I was impressed with the safety of the operation and the excellent condition of the helicopters in Leading Edges fleet of... More

I am really glad I did this. It was very exciting. My pilot was experienced and pointed out many things as we flew over Crooked River and Prinville, around Smith Rock, over to the mountains North, Middle and South Sister, Broken Top, over Tumalo Falls, Lava Falls, Bend and back to the airport. I don't think I would have been... More
