Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

New Orleans Sightseeing Flight

Aerial Tour

Head to New Orleans Aerial Tours and Flight Training to meet your pilot and board the four-seat airplane for your invigorating aerial adventure! Choose your departure time (based on general operating hours) and a 30-, 45- and 60-minute trip duration, depending on what you’d like to see. Due to the highly flexible nature of the tour, you are invited to request certain sights.

As you take off, watch the city fall away and marvel at the striking juxtaposition of urban landscape and wetlands territory. Soar above the historic French Quarter and see how it hugs into the curve of the mighty Mississippi River. Head to the Central Business District to whirl around the massive Mercedes-Benz Superdome — home to the New Orleans Saints NFL team and renowned as a key shelter during Hurricane Katrina — and view the bustling Port of New Orleans. 

You’ll then cut away from the city to witness the enormous, integrated bayou system that pours from the Mississippi River. See the magnificent wetlands, home to abundant wildlife and Cajun communities, before returning to the academy. Throughout your flight, your professional pilot will share fascinating facts and histories, point out the city’s most iconic landmarks, and explain the city’s unique topography.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

Worth every minute. It was such a great experience. I recommend taking the 45 minute tour or longer. I did they 30 minute tour because I was nervous about being in a small plane, but I wish I would have went for longer. The tour guide was awesome!

!! Brilliant !!! !!! Value for money !!!

David, our pilot, was informative, interesting and instructive.
He showed us the whole of New Orleans, which was far better than any donkey ride or map. We saw the crescent, the lake, the French Quarter, points of interest... we saw everything from above !.
And everything, geographically made sense. In addition David gave us a commentary of the history of New Orleans and at the end of the flight introduced us to Lauren Broussard who gave us a tour of the art-deco terminal which is worth a visit in its own right. Will we be back again ? ...Oh yes !!!
