If one of our "Specialty Flights" is not what you had in mind, consider an affordable "Scenic Flight" in our 7 passenger "AirVan".The Australian built GA8 "AirVan" is a very impressive airplane which is uniquely well suited for air tour operations. AirVan features include:

  • Affordability  - Best price guaranteed! Flights starting at $36.75 per person. Will beat any competitor's advertised rate.
  • Views - High wing aircraft with unobstructed views. Every passenger has their own large, convex, "bubble" window which provides outstanding visibility and panoramic views for unequaled sightseeing and photographic opportunities.
  • Comfort - A large, sliding cabin access door makes the AirVan easy to load and unload. The wide body passenger cabin with a central isle has no middle seats. Each passenger has their own window seat. Factory Air Conditioning with individual "eyeball outlets" let's each passenger adjust the temperature to suite their own comfort. Also, each passenger has their own headset so that they can talk to each other and to the pilot.
  • Professionally Narrated Tour by knowledgeable Commercial Pilot.

Walk-ups welcome! Reservations recommended but not required.

MDI Flight

If you want to see the things that most people come to Mount Desert Island (MDI) to see then, this flight is for you! In addition to the sights included in our Bar Harbor tour, nature's beauty really takes hold as you head south along the eastern shore of MDI with breathtaking views of Mount Champlain, a towering tree-covered area of sheer rock cliffs. Continuing south, we circumnavigate the entire eastern half of MDI flying past Great Head, Otter Cliffs, Sand Beach, the Cranberry Islands, Seal Harbor and Northeast Harbor. Your "grand finale" is the trip back to the airport flying right up the middle of Somes Sound giving you an incredible 360 degree view of the entire island.

Lighthouse Flight

Our most popular flight is simply unforgettable. So, if you want to have a lasting memory of this rugged, picturesque corner of America, you gotta do this one! Your flight begins by skirting the eastern edge of MDI to the town of Bar Harbor. Then you cross Frenchman's Bay to Schoodic Peninsula, a part of Acadia National Park seldom visited by vacationers. After visiting three area lighthouses we then cross back over the Egg Rock Lighthouse to rejoin the shoreline of MDI. You will see a total of seven lighthouses on this tour as well as many other sights.
