OBX Airplanes would like to wish you a Happy Valentine’s Day…and give you some ideas for how to
really impress that special someone. Now we’re not knocking the classic Valentine’s Day expressions of
love. There’s nothing wrong with flowers, cards, chocolate, and romantic candlelit dinners. We’re just
saying that those things are slightly overused on this particular day of the year. If you really want to
impress your Valentine, we suggest you take her (or him) on an exciting and romantic flight over the
We offer many different types of Air Tours at OBX Airplanes and can tailor these to help you up your
romance game. You could take your loved one on a romantic sunset Air Tour in one of our Cessna
Aircraft (followed of course by that romantic candlelit dinner). You could go for an adventurous and
romantic flight in our beautiful red WACO Biplane (also available for a sunset flight). If you really want to
score some points, you could write a message in the sand before the flight and point it out to your loved
one as you fly over that section of the beach. Get creative with the message. It could be a giant heart
with both of your names inside, it could say “[Insert Name], will you marry me?” Just be sure to double
check the spelling and consider the tide as you don’t want the ocean to wash your message away before
he or she gets to see it!
Our banner towing service is another great way to express your message of love. It could be a unique
way to propose to your future wife or a great way to say, “Will you be my Valentine?” Take a bottle of
wine and a picnic out to the beach (it’s a beautiful, sunny, spring-like day here on the Outer Banks) and
watch your Valentine’s surprise as the message flies into view.
Of course, OBX Airplanes is not suggesting you limit your expressions of love and romance to just
Valentine’s Day. One of our Air Tours or Biplane Rides is the perfect thing to do as a couple on the Outer
Banks any day of the year. Whether it’s a first date or a 50 th wedding anniversary, flying over the
beautiful beaches of the OBX is sure to impress and be something you will both remember forever.
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!
