New Orleans Aerial Tours & Flight Training - New Orleans Reviews

This place is AMAZING!The staff and crew made one heck of a memorable birthday for my girlfriend.Easily one of the coolest things that I've done in NOLA in a really long time.I can't wait to go up again!
I am so thankful we found New Orleans Aerial Tours & Flight Training! I have been wanting to learn to fly as well as take a tour of the city. My wife surprised me with this trip and not only were they accommodating and friendly, our pilot Trent made sure it was unforgettable. We were both blown away by the experience and by Trent’s passion and skill as a pilot! We will be a life long passenger now and trainee in the future! Thanks again! Passengers 599 600
My family and I had an amazing time flying!! We had both Trent and Emrick as pilots and they were so knowledgeable, patient, and fun.You really do get to take control and learn maneuvers.Brooke, the manager, was also extremely kind and helpful.All of the other pilots around the hanger were warm and very friendly.Overall, it was a wonderful experience with great people and is SO worth it!
We had an amazing experience with Trent!! Would highly recommend !
This was the first scenic flight my friend and I had taken. The views were great and the pilot was very friendly. However, I was disappointed that I paid for a 30 minute flight but the pilot figured in the ground time and we only had about 10 minutes of actual flight time on both day and night flights. I’ve since taken numerous other scenic flights and none of the other pilots have figured in ground time, which I greatly appreciate. If you’re paying for a certain amount of time in the air, that’s what you should get. The Cessna was also very uncomfortable as we were both crammed into the backseat and had literally no wiggle room. I now only fly helicopters as they’re much more comfortable and the windows are larger to provide better views. I would recommend flying over New Orleans as it is a unique city with great photography opportunities, but I wouldn’t recommend taking a Cessna, and I would always recommend checking first to see if the company figures in ground time.
