Flight over Acadia; absolutely beautiful day. Knowledgeable and competent pilot.

We live in Lamoine and were able to fly over our's and daughter's houses. Wonderful experience. We see the planes fly daily so this was a great experience.

We booked our 50 minute flight the day before on a whim...and so glad we did!! We were only in Bar Harbour for 6 hours and this was the perfect way to see such a beautiful area. Ben, our pilot, picked us up in the town and drove us to the airfield. He was fun, informative and instilled complete confidence... More

We did the Deluxe Lighthouse today with Zal and it was incredible! The views were stunning and it was definitely the best way to see the foliage. Customer service was great too, I rescheduled due to the weather looking bad and received a prompt email confirming our new flight details. Would definitely recommend.

Bar Harbor was one of the ports on our cruise. #1 our cruise was awesome.. #2 - This was the next best part of the trip. We researched and booked this before we left. Like a kid at Christmas, this was the one day we were looking forward to the most. We paid extra to have Vicki pick us up... More

Thanks so very much guys:). What a great way to see the harbor and Acadia Park! Please do not miss this opportunity. I have to say, this was a highlight. If we would have known how fantastic this was going to be, we would have stayed up longer. The views were so beautiful. Our pilot was not only capable, but... More

I was immediately put at ease by the staff and our pilot, Ben as I have never been in a small plane before. Ben gets an A+ from myself and my husband for obtaining great report with his guests!! The take off was smooth and easy and explained very well. We had a little bit of a bumpy ride as... More

Beautiful clear day to view the fall folige over Mount Desert Island! Our pilot, Dan, was terrific! He pointed out the highlights of the Island, including Cadillac Mountain, Northeast Harbor, Southwest Harbor and Bass Harbor. All of which we were very familiar with on land, but in the air it was magical! The time flew (no pun intended), my husband... More
