Aerobatic plane ride was absolutely fantastic! If you love roller coasters (and I don't) this is the best ride. It's a 2 seater plane and we went out over the beach and did the loop d'loop, barrel roll and Jenny's famous 'hammerhead.' I can cross this off my bucket list but I'm ready to go again. In my (60's). It's... More

My teen daughter and I took an ariel view of the Outer Banks through OBX Airplanes. Our pilot Alicia was great, she told us what we were flying over, what was beyond where we were and even did the rock with the plane as we flew over our hotel so our family could see us. It was the best use... More

I recommend flying with Jenny at OBX Airplanes. I flew with her last week and I had a lot of fun and gained some tailwheel, Citabria training. She was very nice and accomadating. You can do flight training, sight seeing, and/or arobatics with her. If you've never experienced aerobatics before and love roller coasters definitely try it out! (Or send... More

Amazing local pilot takes you on a dare devil ride to see the sights from the sky. Perfect view of the pristine outer banks. Her great knowledge of the region allows the adventure to be informative and fun. See the dunes, the beaches, The NATIONAL SEASHORE, the sound and more all from the sky! Highly recommended, especially for the price!!... More

Had a great Intro flight over the Outer Banks. Saw the lighthouse and Dolphins and even flew the plane. It was a ton of fun and much cheaper than I thought it would be. Highly recommend them for flight instruction or sight seeing tours.

I did my private pilot training with Jenny in the Cessna 150. The plane is very well maintained and I was able to fly as much as I wanted. I passed my check ride and received my PPL in about 5 weeks. I also did my Tail Wheel training in her beautiful new Citabria. You won't find cheaper training anywhere.... More
