Flightseeing Tours
Summer, Winter
Both the Aviat Husky and the Found Bush Hawk are perfect for flightseeing. The Husky holds one passenger and is known for going low and slow, and with the option to open a window or door it is perfect for photography. The Bush Hawk holds up to three passengers for flightseeing. The large windows and lack of wing struts on the aircraft make for a beautiful, clear view of the area you are flying over.
