About Pacific Mission Aviation
It is said that you must see Palau from under water, from the beach and from the air. We'd love to help with that last one! We operate two Cessna 206's for trips to Peleliu and Angaur, scenic flights, and charter flights.

I needed to fly from Yap to Palau so I could make a connection to my liveaboard boat. I found out through another pilot that they might have room for me on their next flight. I was lucky to fly co-pilot on the trip from Yap to Palau. Something I will never forget. I also found out about PMA's mission to help the outer island people who don't have access to medical care or supplies. If you want to find a place that would put your donation money to a good source check out their website.

We took the scenic approximately 40-minute flight over the islands of Palau. The staff were so friendly and helpful from beginning to the end. We had 3 people in our party, so it was just us in the plane. The open-door flight was a first for us, and it was really amazing for photography. You get to see Palau from a whole new perspective...the colors are just vibrant. It gave us a good idea of the layout of the islands. It was near the end of our trip, so we could finally get a good idea of where we had already snorkeled, kayaked, etc. We could see the 70-islands, the German Channel, the Big Drop Off, Long Lake, etc. Our pilot was super friendly and knowledgeable, and worked really well with my 12 year old son. It was totally worth the money spent. It was my son's top activity on our trip. It was a spectacular flight. In spite of the clouds that day, we got some amazing photos. The colors from above are just SO VERY vibrant. If you are going to come all the way to Palau....splurge and go on the flight seeing tour with PMA! You won't be disappointed.

The scenic tour offered by PMA is the most impressive activity I did in Palau for my 7-day trip! With PMA, I had the privilege to see the beautiful islands of Palau and the famous water with different shades of blue! The 40-min ride with Paul (the pilot) was absolutely enjoyable and the flight was so stable that one wouldn't be worried about sticking their cellphones or camera out of the plane to take pictures!  The open-door flight made the whole experience even more memorable! Just wish to show our appreciation to the PMA team (especially CJ and Ruetei) for making the tour possible! Amazing team with excellent hospitality and helped us from booking to everything else! ;) Highly recommended tour and if you are wondering whether to join a scenic tour and if so, which company to sign up for, PMA is your best choice!

Planning my trip to Palau, I knew that I wanted to do a scenic flight over the islands to get a greater perspective on the landscape. So I booked a trip with PMA and definitely not regret it. The team was super nice! I was picked up at my hotel (free pick-up & drop-off) and taken to the aviation center. My pilot was Stefan who was very knowledgeable. I pointed out all the sights from the top, including German Channel, Milky Way, Jellyfish Lake and Seventy Islands. On my trip I was really lucky as the guests for the next trip did not show up and Stefan had I take some cargo to another island - so he offered me another tour for free. :) We also spotted different wildlife from the air (dugong and stingrays). I will definitely book another tour there if I ever go back to Palau!!!

We took this 40 minute trip instead of kayaking trip, and I'm so glad we did! Markus flew us over the Milky Way, Jellyfish Lake (pretty much empty right now), German Channel, Blue Corner, Blue Holes, Seventy Islands, Natural Bridge, and the Japanese Friendship Bridge. He pointed out some other interesting things too. He removed one of the plane's doors to make it easier to see the sights. Definitely worth taking the trip, if you have the chance! Seeing Palau from above is something you shouldn't miss. PMA picked us up from our hotel and dropped us off after the flight. Their staff and pilots are very friendly and professional.
