Come see the Outer Banks from the sky on one of our scenic tours, let us take you on an AEROBATIC RIDE (so you can check it off your bucket list!) or actually LEARN TO FLY! **AERIAL TOURS START AT JUST $15/PER PERSON!! We offer tours of the historic Wright Brothers memorial, Bodie Island, Hatteras or Currituck lighthouses, and of course the scenic beaches which the Outer Banks is famous for. Have you ever dreamed of becoming a pilot?? We also offer extensive pilot training for all levels. You fly the airplane and start making your dream of becoming a pilot a reality. What better place to fly than where it all began?! Life is too short not to follow your heart- and as Amelia Earhart said: "Adventure is worthwhile in and of itself." Call OBX AIRPLANES today!

Went on a whim. It was a great experience. Pilot was very nice and made the trip interesting. New bridge being built over Oregon Inlet was a big reason for going and we were not disappointed. Highly recommed. Well worth the price.
