Great experience!!

This was a great experience! Captain Jack was a great pilot, smooth take off and landing. He was sweet to check in with my younger son who was nervous about flying. Captain Jack also took time to point out interesting points not mentioned in the audio tour. This was worth the money! So easy to book, board. We got to see the Grand Canyon and not have to crowd in with the summer tourist crowds.

We were at the North Rim the day before our flight - was interesting to see it from the air; after the flight, we drove through the South Rim - again, interesting to see it from a different perspective. Great scenery from both air and ground.

This was a great experience and an amazing way to see the Grand Canyon from above. If u want up close I would suggest the helicopter tour. Only thing I never got to clarify is where the optional hummer tour. We were short on time for our days activities. Was great!!

Great way to really get an expansive view and take in the massiveness of the Grand Canyon. Seats are pre-assigned. Everyone gets a window, but it seemed like the left side got better views, and the wing struts blocked some views. Stock audio recoding provided helpful context.

Friendly and courteous pilot. Was really concerned about us when we were feeling queasy... offered us cold water. Just keep in mind when booking that it's a small plane... very bumpy ride throughout the 45 min. Definitely not for those who don't travel well... and even if u do just be ready for an unsteady ride( I'm a great traveler and literally needed the bag)

Hello Aaron, thank you so much for taking the time to post your review. We appreciate it. We apologize if you got sick on our flight. It is correct that smaller aircraft will have more turbulence in the air than larger commercial aircraft. We try our best to maintain a smooth flight and are glad you still enjoyed the views from above. Thank you for flying with us!
