Seeing the Outer Banks from the sky is actually much more affordable than many people think. For only $15 a person, a family or group of three passengers can take off from the Manteo Airport and circle over the Croatan Sound and the North End of Roanoke Island. For only $23 a person, that same family can opt for our Discovery Flight which takes off from the Manteo Airport and flies over the Wright Brothers National Memorial, Jockey’s Ridge State Park, and ship wrecks off the coast of Kill Devil Hills. It is truly a great way to see some of the OBX’s most beautiful and iconic sights. As a comparison, it’ll cost $20 to ride a go-kart in a circle for twenty minutes.
Which sounds like the better Outer Banks adventure? Looking for adventure with a large group or family? OBX Airplanes has you covered! With our team of experienced pilots and fleet of aircraft, even big groups can take to the skies at the same time. Seeing the Outer Banks from our fleet of Cessna aircraft is one of the most unique and memorable ways to experience the beauty of this ribbon of shifting sand. The high wings and panoramic windows of our Cessnas give you the best view possible of the beaches, inlets, shipwrecks and lighthouses so be ready to take some amazing pictures!
In addition to the $15 Rides and Discovery Flights, we have several other options available. We offer Inlet Tours, Sunrise and Sunset Flights, Customizable Tours and Biplane Rides. So, if you’re looking for something new and exciting to do on your vacation call OBX Airplanes to book your Outer Banks adventure in the sky!
