New Orleans Aerial Tours & Flight Training , 5701 Walter Beech St, New Orleans, LA 70126, USA

We are in the back of Moffett Hangar, the building immediately to the left of the main terminal, facing the ramp. From the main parking lot, take a left and then an immediate right. We are at the end of the street directly across from the terminal.

This activity will end right where it started.
Choose your departure time (based on general operating hours) and VIP option, then head to New Orleans Aerial Tours and Flight Training, where you’ll meet your pilot and take a window seat for your invigorating aerial adventure! The small plane accommodates up to three passengers, perfect for an intimate couple’s excursion or a trip with friends. Due to the flexible nature of the tour, you are invited to request certain sights.

As you take off, watch the city fall away and marvel at the striking juxtaposition of urban landscape and wetlands territory. Soar above the historic French Quarter and hear about some of its architectural highlights. Then head to the Central Business District to whirl around the massive Mercedes-Benz Superdome — home to the New Orleans Saints NFL team and renowned as a key shelter during Hurricane Katrina — and view the bustling 2-mile wharf at the Port of New Orleans. 

You’ll then cut away from the city to witness the enormous, integrated bayou system that pours from the Mississippi River. See the magnificent wetlands, home to abundant wildlife and Cajun communities, before returning to your departure point. Throughout your VIP flight, your professional pilot will share fascinating facts and histories, point out the city’s most iconic landmarks, and explain the area’s unique topography.

Option 1: Champagne and Chocolates

As you glide above the mighty Mississippi, savor a full bottle of Champagne and decadent chocolates of varying flavors and quantity. Cozy up with your partner or friends and indulge in treats as you take in stunning aerial views.  

Option 2: Wine and Cheese

For those who prefer savory indulgence, choose the wine and cheese option. Each couple will select a bottle of red or white wine to relish as you enjoy the spectacular views and snack on artisanal cheese, crostini and other possible treats.

Lauren was a wonderful pilot. She taught us a lot about the city that we live in. The flight had incredible views. Highly recommend. Will be doing this again in the future.
Do it, do it, do it!!

If you’ve ever wanted to take a flight tour of a city, this is THE way to do it!!! It was a convenient place to get to from the French Quarter (about 20 minutes each way, quick & easy Uber). The employees were beyond friendly - we LOVED our pilot Everett!!!! He juggled so many responsibilities at once with such ease and grace. Great wine, great cheese, great flight & tour, and an overall fantastic time! Five stars all around. Seriously, you won’t regret booking this.

WHAT A LOVELY FLIGHT!! Our pilot Lauren was amazing! We had so much fun and got sooo drunk lol. We booked it for the morning, first flight of the day. We were running late so we decided to eat after the flight and oh boy! The adrenaline with the champagne kicked us hard lol! We will definitely do it again!

This was such an amazing experience. The pilot was so friendly and knowledgeable. We had an absolutely amazing time. We had to have our flight rescheduled due to weather and they were more than willing to work with us to reschedule a new time. This is a must do! The champagne and chocolate was the perfect added touch as well.

Felt cheated
, Sep 2019
We payed for 45minutes of air time. And he gave us 30 minutes of air time landing and all in 30 minutes. We felt we didn't get money's worth. Not worth it
icon Response from Host , Oct 2019
Rene - Thank you for letting us know that you did not get your full 45 minute flight. We hope you enjoyed the flight you did receive and are sorry that there was an error with our scheduling system that caused the shortened flight. Please allow me to explain...unfortunately our booking software provider does not talk to our scheduling software provider, and therefore any time a flight is booked we have to manually enter it into our schedule. Being human, sometimes mistakes happen and sadly your flight happened to bear the brunt of one of those human errors and was only put on the schedule for 30 minutes. Since our pilots go by the schedule we manually create based on bookings, this means your pilot thought your flight was only 30 minutes and did not realize it was supposed to be 45 minutes. Had you brought this up to our office staff before you left, we could have looked into it at that time and would have realized that you did not receive the full flight that you had paid for and would have done our best to make it right. While I know it's no consolation that this has never happened before, I can assure you that we do have checks and balances in place to help prevent this from happening, and we're very sorry this happened to you, and wish we had been given an opportunity to make it right.
Surprise B-day Gift (for the wife)
, Aug 2019
We had an amazing time on this aerial tour. Our pilot (Roy) was amazing and very knowledgeable of New Orleans. My wife was really taken away by this tour of the city from above. It's one thing to tour a city on the ground but when you're able to exoerience the city from above it takes the experience to another level. This tour really completed our trip to NOLA.

This was my wife's first actual flight. She really enjoyed herself to say the least. Nothing to bad about it. When in the air and being that you're only 1500 feet from the ground you feel winds so often all in all it was great. I would change the Champagne and Chocolate to something different. I will recommend and return!
