OBX Airplanes is proud to employ a team of skilled professional pilots to provide a wide range of flight services. Is your family looking for a fun and exciting way to see the beauty of the Outer Banks? Then fly with one of our pilots on a scenic air tour over our beaches and lighthouses. Maybe you want a little more adventure? Soar with one of our pilots in our open cockpit WACO biplane. Would you like to give your local business a boost? An OBX Airplanes pilot can tow an advertising banner that will be seen by thousands of potential customers up and down the beach. Or have you always dreamed of flying yourself? Take off from the Dare County Reginal Airport with one of our experienced qualified flight instructors and you can be on your way to getting your private pilot’s license.
Continuing with what we started in our last blog post, OBX Airplanes is happy to introduce another of our pilot’s: Luke Williams, originally of Virginia Beach, has been flying with OBX Airplanes since February of 2018. We are happy to have him on our team. Luke began flying when he was sixteen years old in a Citabria aircraft. He completed his flight training at McClellan-Palomar Airport (KCRQ) in Carlsbad, California. Luke’s favorite plane to fly (and the plane he flies most often) is our WACO YMF-5C biplane. When Luke isn’t cruising over the beaches of the Outer Banks in the open cockpit biplane, he enjoys surfing, snowboarding trips, and generally anything outdoors.
If you are looking for an exciting Outer Banks adventure, then come fly with Luke in our beautiful red WACO biplane. You’ll hear and feel the power of the R-755 Radial Engine, smell and feel the salt air as you soar through it in an open cockpit. The WACO YMF-5C combines the romance, beauty and adventure of the 1930s Golden Era biplane with the modern safety and technology of an FAA certified aircraft. Our biplane can accommodate two passengers, and we guarantee that flying with Luke over the lighthouses, bridges, and beaches of the Outer Banks will make for an unforgettable adventure.
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!
