Come see The Crystal Coast from a perspective unlike any other! On an Air Tour with Southern Air, you'll venture out over Shackleford Banks to spot the wild horses, cruise past the location of Blackbeard's ship, and circle around the Cape Lookout lighthouse on one of the most scenic flights in the country. *Under new ownership as of May 2016.
