Just returned from a 45 minute flight over this area and what a great way to get an idea of how these islands, bays, sound, and the ocean come together. No better way to see it up close than from the air. Fly over Cape Lookout National Seashore for a spectacular view. Pilot was very knowledgeable and able to point... More

Robert, my pilot, was a great pilot. We took the 1 hour outer banks air tour. This was my first flight in a small ( max 4 person ) plane. From preflight, to running commentary, to answering my endless ???, Robert was the greatest tour guide i have ever had. I have lived in the SOBX for 12 months. I... More

I made reservations with Ryan on Friday afternoon for Saturday morning. Our tour was scheduled for 9:15 A.M. The reservations were smooth and efficient. We arrived early on Saturday and met our pilot, Robert. We told Robert what we wanted: to fly around Cape Lookout lighthouse then fly on the Ocean side to the point on Emerald Isle and fly... More

We truly enjoyed our 30 minute flight over the Outer Banks of N. Carolina.Their pristine natural beauty can be best appreciated from an airial view. Our 15 year old grandson, who usually is immersed in his cellphone, was fully involved in our bird's eye view! Our pilot,Robert, was informative when we asked questions and pointed out certain landmarks. We will... More

My husband, 8 year old and 23 month old took a 30 minute plane tour and it was GREAT! If you're in the area you should take the time to do this. The costs at very reasonable and the kids really liked it. Staff is very friendly. My 8 year old even told the pilot he didn't know he would... More

This is an experience you would not want to miss! Through an International Exchange Program, three 15/16 yr old French students, Nathan, Philippe, and Allan (hosted by families on the Crystal Coast) had an extensive tour of workings of the Southern Air at MRH, by AviationTechnician Dave. On a Sunday morning before church, pilot Robert flew them over the Cape... More

This experience was an awesome addition to our family vacation. I can't think of a better and more economical way to see several islands and iconic scenes (Cape Lookout lighthouse and wild horses on Shackleford Banks) from up above. My teens were awestruck at all the natural beauty and just the overall small plane flight experience. The pilot provided some... More

We had been looking at doing this air your prior to our vacation but didn't know for sure if it was what we wanted. Don't hesitate to book a trip! We did the 30 min tour and wish we would have done an hour. AMAZING!
