Owner description: See New Orleans from a different altitude!Flight Academy is proud to be located in one of the most unique, authentic, and mysterious cities in the US, New Orleans.

Let us put it all in perspective for you. From the bayou to the Dome, from the river to the lake, from the cemeteries to the mouth of the river, from the Quarter to the Spanish Plaza, you can capture it all in one flight.

From the moment I booked with Katherine, to calling a cab for us to return to hotel, everything was fabulous! Safe, knowledgeable, experienced pilot, wonderful support staff (with inside local recommendations for even more fun). The flight was thrilling. Truly an experience from a different view! Highly recommended. Don't forget gratuity for your pilot! Thanks for an unforgettable experience!

I went with my daughter on the flight for 1 hour to see New Orleans from above and it was fantastic. The people working there they are very nice, friendly and professional.
