Took the 15 min tour over Bar Harbor. It was fun and informative and quite exhilerating since I have never flown in a small single engine plane before. We were taken up quickly and saw many nice views of the islands and waterways. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting the Bar Harbor area. The staff was extremely friendly and... More

It was a wonderful experience and the best way to see the islands. The staff were very friendly and our pilot Zal was friendly, informative and as I am here to review the flight, a good pilot. 😆😉😊

My boyfriend and I booked the All Acadia flight with Ben and it was simply amazing. I have a severe high phobia, but Ben made me feel safe. He was very knowledgeable about the history and social aspects of the island and I never felt the plane land on the ground! We're definitely coming back next year and bringing our... More

If you're going on a flight the bare minimum wonderful views, and it certainly delivered showcasing Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, but what really made the experience was the friendly staff. Linda was very kind and helpful and chatted with us before our flight. The pilot, Ben, was very enthusiastic and funny. We took the 15 minute Bar Harbor... More

My fiancé & I took the All Acadia flight with Ben. He was so fun & knowledgeable. I can't say enough about him. I was scared at first (small plane phobia) but he made me feel safe & at ease. BEN is the freaken MAN! My man let me sit in the front so I got to steer the plane... More

Excellent service, professional attitude, friendly and personable. Our pilot could not have been nicer or more accommodating. We had a great time photographing light houses from the air. Fascinating to see the places we have been via car and foot. The park was splendid to see from above. I would suggest that this is a good company to use if... More

The trip around Mount Desert Island was just wonderful, and I cannot thank our driver, Zal enough. First of all, the front seat passenger was having some difficulty maneuvering into the plane, and without embarrassing my friend's lack of coordination, he eased her into her seat by allowing her to do it! What a gentleman he was. Then, the backseat... More

The first time I ever flew was with this company when I was a Bartender in Bar Harbor, as a teenager, 25 Years AGO!!! Pun intended....time flies!!! Monday, I took my 2 oldest boys to fly for their first time, ages 13 and 10. They were a little nervous to say the least but Ben took away their fears by... More

My husband and I did the Biplane over Bar Harbour which was great. What a great way to see everything from up above. We had drove the entire island the day before so I highly recommend doing that before the ride so you can truly appreciate what you're seeing from above. I have terrible motion sickness but Steve talked us... More
