What To Expect
Meet your pilot at Deer Valley Airport where you receive a safety briefing and orientation to your aircraft. Travel in comfort in either a Cessna Caravan or T207, both of which are high-winged airplanes that are ideal for sightseeing from the air and taking photos. Every passenger has a window seat with unobstructed views of the spectacular scenery below.
As you fly to the Grand Canyon, be amazed at the scenery below of the Tonto National Forest, the Red Rock formations of Sedona, the San Francisco Peaks, Painted Desert and the Navajo Indian Reservation. Then get an amazing perspective of the widest part of the Grand Canyon as your pilot takes you where few other airplanes are allowed to fly.
Upgrade your experience to the full-day air and ground option, which includes landing in Grand Canyon National Park for a guided jeep tour. Enjoy impressive views from one of the South Rim overlooks and stop at the Grand Canyon Historic Village for fantastic photo ops, sweeping views or an unforgettable stroll along the rim of the Grand Canyon. Keep an eye out for native wildlife as you absorb the grandeur of the vast canyons and multicolored rock terrain. Lunch is provided during your time that you are exploring the park on the ground.
Afterwards, head back to the Grand Canyon Airport to continue your aerial journey, returning to Deer Valley Airport in Phoenix via Sycamore Canyon Wilderness and the old mining town of Jerome.
