Very professional pilots and ride, and yet they made it fun! The tour in the bi-plane was great and he explained many of the highlights along the way. Well worth it!

My sister was overwhelmed,... More

This was by far the best time I had while on vacation. I highly recommend one of the tours offered, and I only wish I could have stayed up there all day.

A total of seven of us just did the 15 minute biplane tour with Jim last week. What a great way to see the island and the coast. We circled the lighthouse twice and went over the Oak Island Pier. The open air ride is one of the most amazing rides. Was able to get some fantastic pictures from the... More

the Carolina Belle offered a graceful and smooth arial panorama of the north carolina coast including bald head and oak island and my favorite beach caswell. Laura and Jim couldnt have been more kind or friendly and the whole experience was quite wonderful.
