This was our first time in a small plane and so well worth it. We didn't know that in such a limited time what we were able to see. It was unbelievable and something I would recommend anyone to at least do once in their life. Our pilot Jack was very friendly and informative of the Canyon. The amount of views and angles you see from above is indescribable in words. My pictures are phenomenal and my memories will last me a life time. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

This was without a doubt the highline activity of our 23 day/7 National Park tour. The flight took us for 49 minutes over some of the most beautiful parts of the est, north and south rim. The plane is quite comfortable and the professional dialog helped provide interesting and education to the event!

Chris and Dale were not only expert pilots, they were excellent tour guides. My trip over the South rim was spectacular! I actually thought I had been scheduled for a helicopter ride but when I learned I would be doing this activity and it lasted so long, I was overjoyed! I got to see panoramic views of the canyon.
