Head to the New Orleans Aerial Tours and Flight Training to meet your pilot and board the 4-seat airplane for your invigorating aerial adventure! Choose your departure time (based on evening operating hours) and a 30-, 45- and 60-minute trip duration, depending on what you’d like to see. Due to the flexible nature of the tour, you are invited to request certain sights.

As you take off, watch the dusk-lit city fall away and marvel at the striking juxtaposition of urban landscape and wetlands territory. Soar above the glitter of nighttime New Orleans, admiring the atmospheric French Quarter as it hugs into the curve of the Mississippi River. You’ll head to the Central Business District to whirl around the illuminated Mercedes-Benz Superdome – home to the New Orleans Saints NFL team and renowned as a key shelter during Hurricane Katrina – and glide over the bustling wharf at the Port of New Orleans. 

Next, cut away from the city to view the enormous, integrated bayou system that pours from the Mississippi River. See the magnificent Southern Louisiana wetlands, home to abundant wildlife and Cajun communities, before returning to the academy. Throughout your 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.
