Frequently Asked Questions
Where will the flight take me? What will I see?
We will stay within a 25nm radius around Cherokee County Airport (47A) Canton, GA. Depending upon the ride length purchased you can fly over downtown Atlanta, Buckhead, Stone Mountain, the Braves Stadium, the lakes, or the North Georgia Mountains. If you have any other site or location you would like to see or fly over, just say the word and we ll try to make it happen. Each flight is tailored specifically for you.
Is it safe?
Yes, it is very safe. You are strapped into the plane by a 4 point lap belt and shoulder harness.

Our aircraft are meticulously maintained and our pilots use their thousands of hours of flying experience to ensure that safety always comes first.
