The hum of the Cessna fills your ears as you ascend above the dynamic sandbar known as North Carolina’s Outer Banks. Dotted with cozy beach cottages and oceanfront estates, enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean and area landmarks from an entirely new perspective.

Cessna air tours are one of the most memorable OBX adventures that we offer! Ride the breeze over the sand and the seas on a magical aerial tour that you won’t soon forget. When seen from a bird’s-eye perspective, discover forgotten shipwrecks and geographical features you’d never know existed until you hovered above them.

Our Cessna airplanes offer seating for up to 5 passengers, and our high wing aircraft offers you 10 minute, 30 minute or 1 hour flights with an unforgettable view of Roanoke Island, the Wright Brothers National Memorial, Jockey’s Ridge State Park and the lighthouses.
