This is a fully licensed FAA Air Carrier. Up to 4 and sometime 5 can fly on various trips depending on what you hope to see. Quaint, historic little airport just South of the City. The sightseeing flights are only available during the winter season since Chuck the owner has another Summer operation in Alaska. Experienced pilot and excellent maintenance... More

This is a very informational senic tour of the Everglades National Park and Big Cypress National Preserve. You will not believe how a few thousand feet perspective can change the vantage point and the sense of vastness of this area. Wildlife, estuaries, beaches I try to bring visiting family and freinds every chance I get.

Chuck gave us a wonderful tour of the Anchorage area! He was very knowledgeable about the landscape below us and appeared to be quite a competent pilot. We flew over glaciers and landed on a remote lake stopping for a brief rest on an island. It was perfect. There was definitely an advantage to seeing the glaciers from above instead... More

So this is the opportunity for the closest best thing. I am always amazed at the beauty and wonder of the massive Everglades National Park. There is no better view point to see it all except from the air. Thanks Chuck! My compliments!

Chuck Gretzke is a most helpful ambassador for Everglades City and the national park. We met him when we flew to the Everglades Airport. We were very impressed with his generosity with time and information even though we were not going to use his aero tour service. We could tell that he would make a great aerial guide for anyone...

My wife and college age children took the Air Tour out of Everglades City Airport! Her only regret was that she should have taken the 1:30 minute tour instead of 1:00. Chuck Gretzke the pilot/owner/operator holds the highest pilot and mechanic ratings the FAA issues. He has a vast knowledge of the history, wildlife and culture. The views are fascinating... More

We took the "Grand Tour" with Wings and enjoyed every moment. The pilot provided headsets to all of us and gave us a description of everything we saw along with a history of the area. He was extremely professional and helpful. It was really fun seeing the Everglades from the air especially the flying birds and wildlife. Well worth the... More
