April is the perfect month to take to the air over the Outer Banks! The sun is out, the air is warmer, the days are longer. An air tour is one of the best ways to take advantage of the beautiful weather on the coast of North Carolina. OBX Airplanes provides a variety of air tours that will fly you over the most iconic and beautiful locations on the Outer Banks.
We offer flights in our Cessna aircraft for groups of up to three passengers. With its high wings and panoramic windows, the Cessna is a great plane from which to view the sights along our coastline. Fly over lighthouses, bridges, and piers. See Jockey’s Ridge State Park and the Wright Brothers National Memorial from the air. If the water is clear, we can show you shipwrecks that were lost to the ‘Graveyard of the Atlantic.’
We will customize your air tour to meet your needs and interests. If you are a photographer looking to capture images of the most iconic sights on the Outer Banks, we can circle The Wright Brothers National Memorial and then fly down to the Cape to shoot the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. If you are looking for ideal lighting, we can take off in time for a sunrise or sunset air tour.
Biplane Rides: A True OBX Adventure
For the ultimate Outer Banks adventure, take to the sky in our beautiful red Waco Biplane! Our Waco YMF-5C is a true classic. It does exactly what the manufacturer set out to do: “to revive the Golden Era’s open cockpit flying experience.”
A biplane ride is our most thrilling air tour option. While all of our air tours are exciting, taking off in our Waco biplane will be the start of a real Outer Banks adventure. You will feel the sun on your face and the wind in your hair; you will smell the salt air. You will feel the power of the Jacobs R-755 Radial Engine as you soar over the Atlantic Ocean.
It is Springtime on the Outer Banks and we are excited to welcome visitors back to our beaches. If you are looking for something unique and exciting to do this Spring break or Easter vacation let OBX Airplanes take you on an air tour or biplane ride. We promise, it will be an unforgettable experience!
As a Certified Flight Instructor on the Outer Banks of North Carolina I am pleased to say that when you fly with me you will be sure to have fun, be safe and learn to fly!
