    What to Expect
    Head to the Lake Tahoe Airport where parking is free in the upper lot. Enter the terminal building to find our office on the left inside the main lobby. After meeting your pilot, take part in a short safety briefing prior to heading out to the ramp to board your aircraft. 
    Departing the Lake Tahoe Airport, you'll head to the south shore of breathtaking Lake Tahoe, then west along the shoreline to take in the stunning views of this iconic alpine lake. As you fly over the south shore's most popular beaches, take in the unique perspective of the surrounding lakes-- Fallen Leaf Lake and Cascade Lake. After exploring Emerald Bay, the flight returns along the shoreline to head back to the Lake Tahoe Airport. 
    With your guaranteed window seat (every seat is a window seat!), you can sit back and relax as you enjoy the incredible views. Your professional pilot will provide expert commentary along the way.
