This was so much fun, perfect blue skies. It was windy for the other options, so we took the helicopter. Seeing the Wright brothers/First flight from the air was great.

We LOVE flying by the birthplace of aviation, and are so glad you joined us for the flight. The helicopter is indeed very forgiving, even in breezy conditions since we don't have wings to bump us around! Thanks for flying with us.

Hi there, The Discovery Flight is approx. 12 minutes long, it's enough time to get out to the ocean and circle Jennette's Pier, maybe catch a glimpse of a dolphin or two!
