What You Can Expect

New Orleans Night Sightseeing Flight

Aerial Night Tour

Board your four seat airplane at the Flight Academy of New Orleans, take a seat, and then soar into the air above the city. Watch the flashing lights of the runway fade as the white lights of the city dominate the nightscape stretched before you.

As you soar through the skies above the Mississippi River, listen to your pilot’s tales about the city and its countless sights. Hear about different New Orleans neighborhoods as you pass above the French Quarter, and admire the streetlights casting a glow on its architecture.

Peer past the lit-up skyscrapers of the Central Business District and soar around Mercedes-Benz Superdome, where New Orleans Saints American football team play. Loop around the domed stadium and have your camera ready to capture sights of the Port of New Orleans with its 2-mile (3-km) wharf.

Glide a short distance from downtown New Orleans to admire aerial views of Southern Louisiana’s bayous—the slow-moving streams of water around the Mississippi River. After admiring the nighttime views of the county’s famous wetlands, loop back into the city and touch down at the start point where your experience finishes.

If you have more time free, upgrade to a 60-minute flight and spend longer in the air, checking out all the city’s attractions. Itineraries for both durations are flexible and can be tailored to the New Orleans’ sights that you want to see.
