Perfect weather allowed us to greet the sun atop Cadillac Mtn. and to bid it good night as it set over Bar Harbor. We could not have been more pleased with our 50min sunset Lighthouse flight (which also encounters little to no turbulence) that was so smooth and offered the most iconic Maine views. Suggest you book at the onset... More

We had booked our deluxe tour 7 days ahead and had booked for 1.30, on the day we phoned to move to the morning. No Problem, Vicki gave us instructions to catch the free shuttle bus from town about 40 mins from town. Ben was our pilot and he made sure we had a memorable flight. He has great knowledge... More

I took the 35 minute tour around Mt Desert Island. The pilot was knowledgeable, personable and I would do it again. Scenery is breathtaking.

We have always wanted to fly in small airplanes, and touring the Acadia from air seemed to be the perfect debut. We were scheduled to take off at 6:30 PM, but got delayed at the Acadia National Park. We called in to let them know that we would be late, and they were very understanding about it. Once we reached... More
