What You Can Expect

Biplane Tour of Las Vegas Including Hoover Dam and Lake Mead

Fly in a Waco YMF-5C Open Cockpit Biplane!

75-Minute Flight:
Your 75-minute minute biplane tour of the whole Las Vegas Valley begins with pickup from your Las Vegas hotel and takeoff from the Henderson Executive Airport. Your biplane is equipped with an open cockpit, modeled after the original 1930s design, making for an ideal sightseeing platform. Throughout the flight, your pilot will provide expert commentary about the sights you see.

Head east over Dutchman's Pass to fly over historic Boulder City. Take in the views as you circle over Black Canyon and Hoover Dam. Turn northwest to fly over Lake Mead National Recreation Area, all the while admiring the scenery of the Mojave Desert.

On the north side of Lake Mead, turn west and get a magnificent view of the Las Vegas Strip as you head toward Red Rock State Park. Named for its brilliant red sandstone, this park is one of the most beautiful areas surrounding Las Vegas and features more than 2,000 jagged cliffs overlooking a verdant valley.

Then, turn toward the quaint town of Blue Diamond, cross over the Sloan Mine, and travel over the southern tip of the city before landing.

45-Minute Flight:
On the 45-minute biplane flight, you’ll fly the same route as above until you hit Lake Mead National Recreation Area. As you veer toward the south side of the city, get a great view of the Las Vegas Strip, with a beautiful backdrop of Red Rock State Park and Mt Charleston in the distance, and then land back at the airport.
