What You Can Expect
Then, head out to the ramp to step aboard your small sightseeing plane and take your seat in the cockpit. Under the watchful eye of the pilot sat at your side, launch the aircraft into the sky, and then enjoy roughly 30 minutes of free flying through the air.
Learn how to maneuver the plane up and down, to the right and to the left as you soar through the skies around New Orleans, above the plantations and swampland that typify the city's outskirts, and then above New Orleans itself. Gaze down at Mercedes-Benz Superdome—home stadium of New Orleans Saints American football team—and the bright lights of the city laid in front of you. Weave through the skies above the French Quarter, and see the mighty Mississippi River snaking through town.
When it’s time to return to ground, listen to your pilots instructions for touchdown, and then help guide the plane back to the runway. After touching down, your pilot will sign your logbook that officially records your flight over New Orleans.
