I took my two sons on the Inlet Tour and we had a fantastic time. The pilot was informative and receptive to questions from the kids. It was great to see the area from an aerial perspective. I would certainly recommend this trip.

Plane ride was excellent along with the knowledgeable pilot. He was very friendly and explained all sites we flew over. His skill for take off and landing was excellent. Touchdown was so smooth we couldn't even feel it. We will be back.

So glad we finally did! Took the Oregon Inlet tour - my 17 year old daughter and I felt like we "bonded" with familiar sites after seeing them from the air. Circling around Jockey's Ridge and down to Bodie lighthouse gives you a new perspective...More

Although a great ride next time I would upgrade to the longer flight. It was fantastic for my grandsons to take their 1st airplane ride.

Took my first 3 flight lessons at OBX Airplanes while visiting the area. Josh was a top-notch flight instructor: thorough, knowledgeable, personable, motivated to teach. OBX rental/instruction rates were competitive and the airspace wasn’t too busy - perfect for beginners. 10/10 would recommend.

It is harder then getting into a car. Kind of like getting into a high 4 wheel drive pickup. There is a step to get in and he would have to sit up front as it is easier than getting into the back. The trip is worth it.

Great question! It is not difficult getting in or out of our planes, but it's all relative to each passenger's needs. We can accommodate most any situation as needed. It is not a race and you can absolutely take whatever... More
