OBX Airplanes hopes that everyone had a great Memorial Day Weekend and enjoyed the perfect beach
weather! If you did make it to the beach (and we hope you did, it was beautiful) you are sure to have
seen our airplanes towing banners along the coast.
Last weekend kicked off the busy summer season for OBX Airplanes. Now on any given day we can
expect to have over sixty departures from Dare County Regional Airport (MQI). These departures will
mainly include four types of flights: air tours, biplane rides, flight training, and aerial advertising / banner
Air Tours: Find the Perfect Flight for You and Your Family
OBX Airplanes offers a variety of different air tours so that we are sure to have something that everyone
will love. We have the perfect flight for everyone: $15 dollar flights, “discovery” flights, inlet tours,
sunrise and sunset tours, photography flights, and custom air tours. Our air tours are flown in Cessna
aircraft with high wings and panoramic windows so that you can have the best views of the Outer Banks
Biplane Rides: Fly in Our Open Cockpit Red Waco Biplane
We think our biplane ride is the coolest thing you can do while on the Outer Banks! Our beautiful red
Waco is amazing just to look at, wait until you are soaring high above the Outer Banks in its open
cockpit! As with our Cessna air tours we offer many biplane ride options. We have surprisingly cheap
flights that circle downtown Manteo, Festival Park, and the Queen Elizabeth II or take you across the
Roanoke Sound to fly over Jockey’s Ridge. We have biplane tours of Oregon Inlet, custom biplane tours,
and sunrise and sunset biplane tours.

possible. What better place to learn to fly? OBX Airplanes has a team of certified flight instructors who
are passionate about teaching people to fly. They will help you along the way to getting your Private
Banner Towing: One of the Most Effective forms of Marketing on the Beach
Thousands of people will be on the beaches of the Outer Banks on a summer day. These are thousands
of people who will see aerial banners towed by OBX Airplanes. Aerial advertising has a higher recall and
retention rate than other forms of advertising and OBX Airplanes offers competitive rates that are at
least 25 percent lower than nationwide banner towing companies. Call 252-489-8165 to see how
advertising with OBX Airplanes can help your local business.
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!
