Why Choose an Airplane tour?

The Southwest acts as host to some of the most breathtaking natural wonders in United States and the world. Although exploring these beautiful terrains on your own can be fun and exciting, we believe the best way to experience the Grand Canyon and surrounding landscapes in their entirety is from the air. Here are just a few advantages of an airplane tour of the Southwest.

  • If you're strapped for time, aerial tours are perfect. During an airplane tour, you can soar over a week's worth of destinations in one jam-packed adventure.
  • Our Twin Otter Vistaliner airplanes can fit up to 19 passengers each, making them the perfect family or group-bonding activity. On an air tour over the Southwest, your group is sure to make memories that you can share together for a lifetime.
  • Beginner, amateur, and professional photographers alike will benefit from the unique perspectives from out of an airplane window. Have your camera ready to snap a few great pictures to commemorate your experience.
  • You can stick to a budget and have a great time. Airplanes use less fuel than helicopters, so they are generally the more budget-friendly aerial tour option.

Who Should Book an Airplane Tour?

If you are excited by the thought of soaring over some of the most majestic landscapes in the country, bonding with your family or friends, or want to connect with other like-minded adventurers, an airplane tour could be right for you.

That all sounds incredible! But the next question is, who should stay grounded instead? If you suffer from motion sickness, have a deep fear of heights, suffer from cardiovascular or heart problems, or are in your third trimester of pregnancy, opting for a ground excursion may be a better fit. But never fear! We at Grand Canyon Scenic Airlines still offer multiple incredible tours of the Grand Canyon and beyond that don't involve flight.
