What to expect
  • Head to the New Orleans Aerial Tours and Flight Training to meet your pilot and board the 4-seat airplane for your invigorating aerial adventure! Choose your departure time (based on evening operating hours) and a 30-, 45- and 60-minute trip duration, depending on what you’d like to see. Due to the flexible nature of the tour, you are invited to request certain sights. As you take off, watch the dusk-lit city fall away and marvel at the striking juxtaposition of urban landscape and wetlands territory. Soar above the glitter of nighttime New Orleans, admiring the atmospheric French Quarter as it hugs into the curve of the Mississippi River. You’ll head to the Central Business District to whirl around the illuminated Mercedes-Benz Superdome – home to the New Orleans Saints NFL team and renowned as a key shelter during Hurricane Katrina – and glide over the bustling wharf at the Port of New Orleans.  Next, cut away from the city to view the enormous, integrated bayou system that pours from the Mississippi River. See the magnificent Southern Louisiana wetlands, home to abundant wildlife and Cajun communities, before returning to the academy. Throughout your flight, your professional pilot will share fascinating facts and histories, point out the city’s most iconic landmarks, and explain the area's unique topography.

Unforgettable Plane Ride
Jun 2021 • Couples
Unforgettable experience! Had a great time exploring the city from a different view. Our tour guide (Lauren) was excellent! She was fun, a great pilot and had a lot of interesting facts to share. Highly recommend the night time flight especially when setup around sunset. We got to see the city during daylight, sunset and night time.

What an amazing experience! This company provided us with exceptional first class service and hospitality. The weather wasn’t looking great for our trip, however, they made sure to accommodate us and our schedule, and fit us in when there was a break in the clouds and the flight was outstanding. our pilot made us feel like family and provided an incredible tour of the city at night, the city lights were surreal! Thank you to New Orleans Aerial Tours for an awesome night of adventure!

Amazing Night Flight
May 2019 • Couples
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our night-time flight tour of the city for her birthday. Our pilot, Gaiten Howard was enthusiastic, a good conversationalist and explained everything about the ride that we should know or had questions about. Smooth flight on a 4 seat plane with great views of New Orleans. Also got the champagne and chocolate, which was nice to have while flying. Highly recommend.

Terrific flight tour company and experience
Couldn’t have been better. Staff was courteous, cheerful, and went above and beyond, offering tourism and restaurant recommendations near our hotel. Safety was a priority and the pilot, Trent, was very experienced as well as charming and a great guide. Flight went very smoothly and we got some amazing views and pictures. I’d absolutely recommend this experience to others. It was the total highlight of our visit to New Orleans.
