“Affordable, fun, and exciting way to see the sights in Outer Banks
I went on the 30-40 minute Inlet tour with my brother and nephew last week when we were in Outer Banks. The pilot was very professional, friendly and accommodating. He dropped down to a lower altitude when we got near the beach house we were renting so we could see our family who was out on the beach waving to us. He was also very knowledgeable about the area, and it was amazing seeing all of the sights from the air. The price was very fair since it & for up to 3 people. We all had a great time and would definitely do it again!”
“Bucket List Experience
A fabulous 30 minute adventure in an open air cockpit! The pilot was good natured and extremely pleasant. Time was made available for any who wanted to take pictures.”
Great views and a phenomenal pilot. We had a great time up in the air and would definitely fly again”
“Wow! Easy and fun!
It was a spur of the moment decision- but worked out great. We saw the ad on a billboard driving to the OBX. It only took a few minutes and we were set! Our pilot, Luke, was awesome. He offered insight to becoming a pilot to our kids. An economical and fun adventure- well worth it!”
I’m currently taking flight school at OBX and I’m having a great time. My instructor is very knowledgeable and very patient. I absolutely recommend OBX Airplanes!!!”
We did the 20 minute flight with the family. The pilot was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was very neat to see Nags Head and the ocean from the air. We will definitely do it again with a longer flight next time we are in the area.”
As a very experienced student pilot, while vacationing with family at the Outer Banks, my wife and I inquired about renting a Cessna 172 and instructor for a couple hours to mix sightseeing with training. We were introduce[d] to John at OBX and had the most wonderful adventure of flying and sightseeing from Dare, to First Flight, to Hatteras, to Ocracoke and back. John couldn't have been more gracious and encouraging, while exhibiting is wealth of local history on our journey. What a magical sunset adventure, and unforgettable day. Perfect weather, good company, and my wife took many wonderful stills and videos that we can enjoy over and over
again. Thank You OBX, and staff, and John for helping us make our dreams come true! Jim and Nan.”
