I took my sister in law for her 18th birthday. It was so much fun, the view was amazing and the pilot was awesome and answered all our questions! Thinking about taking my husband for his birthday.

I surprised my husband with a one hour airplane ride over the Outer Banks. We have been frequent visitors all of our lives. This perspective was amazing. Elijah was our fantastic pilot. Had a wonderful experience.

We saw a banner for OBX airplanes on the back of a plane and it did not disappoint! Our pilot Elijah was awesome and very knowledgeable! Would 100% come back to OBX airplanes!

The pilot was exceptional kind and knowledgeable of the area. I would highly recommend this activity for any family or couple. The view was beautiful and the pilot provided history of the areas we flew over.

I got to sit in front next to the pilot, who was fun and a great tour guide! The views were spectacular! Really gave you a great view of the OBX, Sound and Ocean. Definitely recommend the 12 to 15 min. ride.
