These are the type of planes we fly low and slow, mostly with the windows open when the weather is warm.We are located in picturesque southwestern Connecticut utilizing Candlewood Lake, Lake Zoar, Lake Lillinonah and the Housatonic river. We encourge you to bring alone a camera to capture the memory.
Safety first!! The flight starts at the dock with a thorough safety briefing from the pilot, including the use of the aviation life vests that are worn by the pilot and passenger at all times. High quality voice activated headphones are used to communicate between pilot and passenger while flying.The 20 minute flight will bring you the length of Candlewood Lake, Connecticut's largest lake. From there, you can merge with the Housatonic River, fly over Lovers Leap State Park and into the North side of Lake Lillanoah. The view is breathtaking and you will love doing landings in the water.The 1 hour flight will bring you to the end of Lake Lillanoah, over the Shepaug Dam, and cover the length of Lake Zoar.
These are truly some of the prettiest sites in New England. If you have something else in mind you want to see, don't hesitate to discuss it with your pilot and every effort will be made to accommodate you. Our restrictions are 25 miles and we must return to the point of departure. All of our pilots are instructors with many years of experience. They have spent thousands of hours giving flight instruction. All planes have dual controls and if you want to get a feel for flying, just ask! We feel every flight should be a learning experience and that is why every flight is also a flight lesson.
We love what we do!! We respect our neighbors and the environment. Minimum safe altitudes and noise abatement procedures are practiced and promoted.
