Before you Begin ...

Please make sure you have read this overview and have the following information on-hand before getting started:
  • The type, purpose, and expected outcome/s of your flight
    How will this flight help elevate your organizations' mission?
  • Flight location
    What specific landmarks, built sites, or geographic features are you interested in viewing? We work with our pilots to plan flight routes ahead of time, and pilots always have the final say on based on airspace regulations, weather conditions, and comfort flying over energy plants, open water, etc..
  • Preferred dates
    Make sure you've identified a few alternate dates that could work. We are able to serve you best when you schedule at least two weeks out.
  • Passenger headcount
    How many people from your organization will be on the flight? Prior to the flight, each passenger will be required to provide their contact information and weight as per FAA guidelines, as well as a signed liability waiver prior.
