Today was a special day for my kids. We took a water plane with Bill to celebrate my son’s 9th birthday. Bill was the most amazing tour guide and pilot. He made us all feel at ease and showed us some amazing sights as we flew above the North Woods. I would recommend this tour with Bill and Lauer Aviation to anyone for any reason. It was the highlight of our summer and we will definitely do it again next year. Thank you, Bill! We can’t wait to see you again!!

It was an incredible experience from the moment that the plane first flew over our dock to the moment he dropped us back off. Bill is knowledgeable of the area and I could not speak more highly of the flight. It was something that my family and I will always remember. I would definitely recommend for anyone in the area that is looking for something fun and unique to do.

My dad was a private pilot, but hadn't been up in a small plane for years. Bill made his day! He gave us a phenomenal tour of the Wisconsin Northwoods, upper peninsula of Michigan, and the Lake Superior shoreline. He is professional, personable, knowledgeable about the area and history, and most importantly, an expert pilot. It was a wonderful experience, and we look forward to going up with Bill again!

Bill was very personable and knowledgeable. His passion for teaching is obvious as he answered questions and explained what he was doing as my dad was very interested in flying. He made sure we had an enjoyable time and saw the things that we wanted to see. He is willing to problem solve for a dock pick up as we had to board via our pontoon boat. Highly recommend booking a flight with Bill!

Bill is a great pilot and guide. He was terrific helping us arrange for the tour. We had the best time! We'd never flown in a float plane before and were excited to try it. Bill was patient with all of our questions leading up to and in flight. He is quite knowledgeable about the area. This experience did not disappoint! We thoroughly enjoyed it and would love to do it again someday. Thanks, Bill!

Our daughter has a disability and she has always been fascinated with planes .A plane ride has been on her bucket list for several years. We found Bill to be very
Friendly ,knowledgeable and professional. The three of us truly enjoyed the experience. We would highly recommend to anyone. Well worth the money.

There are not very many opportunities to take a seaplane ride, especially in an area as unique as the Northwoods. This is an experience of a lifetime and one to check off the bucket list. If you are all about adventure, you need to be all about a seaplane ride in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. One of the best excursions is following the Lake Superior shoreline.
Bill Lauer is an attentive and safe pilot! This is a unique experience and one you can check off your bucket list!

Yesterday I had the great pleasure of taking a flight with Bill. I found his service online via google in an effort to see how I could spice up my usual trip to the North Woods. As a photographer I knew that a flight over the various lakes and wetlands would be something I didn't want to miss. Bill was extremely responsive by email (my preferred method of contact whenever possible) and we narrowed down a date and time that turned out to be perfect.

The skies were fully of fluffy white clouds with the customary North Woods robin's egg blue popping through which made for spectacular color on the ground. With a little help from me by way of a google map to point out our dock, he arrived right on the button. What a thrill to see him fly overhead and land off in the distance before puttering over to our dock.

Just as friendly and personable in person, Bill and I discussed possible routes and soon we were off. The take off was flawless and smooth and before I knew it we had the window open and I was snapping away. He took me over various lakes, roping water ways and vibrant boggy wetlands. Truly better than I had hoped. The landing was just as smooth, not a single wiggle, wobble or bump.

I would absolutely recommend contacting Bill and setting up your own custom flight. The aircraft seats up to 3 passengers and the view from above just cannot be beat. Plus, I'm sure you can get access to some beautiful, remote locations for a truly peaceful, quiet day of hiking, fishing, or whatever your heart desires. I'll absolutely be looking him up again next summer.

Can't think of a better place to spend a weekend away!!! My husband and I took a weekend getaway and stayed in their cabins which are quite lovely I might add. The cabins are very affordable and had more than enough room with a miraculous view of the lake. Very secluded and peaceful. We also took a scenic flight with Bill Lauer and got sight of waterfalls, Lake Superior, and also the history of the land. An experience I will never forget. Their motto really says it all; 'Come as guests, leave as friends.' Already in the process of booking our next vacation with this lovely couple!!
