What You Can Expect

New Orleans Sightseeing Flight

Aerial Tour

Meet your pilot at the Flight Academy of New Orleans, and then step aboard your four seat airplane to take to the skies above New Orleans. Gaze out of your window and watch the runway slip from your view as the urban sights take center stage.

Soar above the snaking Mississippi River, and peer down at the hustle of the French Quarter, seeing buildings that bear a distinctly Spanish flair. As you cruise through the air, listen to tidbits of New Orleans’ history from your pilot and learn about the city’s big-name sights.

Peer past the glossy skyscrapers of the Central Business District to the iconic Mercedes-Benz Superdome, home venue of New Orleans Saints American football team. Loop around the impressive 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 Louisiana’s bayous – the slow-moving streams of water around the Mississippi River. After seeing 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 45-minute or 60-minute flight and spend longer in the air, checking out all the city’s attractions. Itineraries for all three durations are flexible and can be tailored to the New Orleans’ sights that you want to see.
