What’s new at Flying M Air.

Custom Multi-Day Excursions Now Available

Flying M Air is pleased to announce the availability of Custom Multi-Day Excursions from our new base in Wenatchee, WA.

Make Your Dream Trip a Reality!

Flying M Air is certificated for flights in any of the 48 contiguous United States. Although we are most familiar with Washington and Arizona, we have also flown extensively in Oregon, Idaho, California, Nevada, and Utah. But we’re ready and willing to push our own borders to take you just about anywhere you want to go in the lower 48 U.S. states.

Our aircraft cruises at roughly 100 miles per hour and we can cover distances in 1/3 to 1/2 the amount of time it takes to drive the same distances. That means you can go farther faster. But we offer something else you can’t get from a car: a view that simply can’t be beat.

Unlike airplanes, we fly only 500-1000 feet over the ground. That means you’ll get to actually see the places you fly over. No matter how familiar a place is to you from the ground, seeing it from the air will give you a whole new perspective you’ve never imagined.

From overnight flights to two-week adventures, Flying M Air can make your dream trip a reality.

Flying M Air Relocates to Washington State

Flying M Air moved all of its operations to Washington State on June 1, 2013. We no longer offer any services in Arizona or the desert southwest.

Our new base of operations is in the Wenatchee area of North Central Washington. We offer tours, air-taxi services, wine tasting trips, multi-day excursions, aerial photography and survey services, and cherry drying and frost control services in Washington, Oregon, California, and Idaho.

Our local number in Washington is 509-731-4354.

We served Arizona for 12 years but it was time to move on. Hope we see you at our new home soon!

Washington State Winery Tours, Summer 2012

A View from our Wine Tasting ToursJust a quick note to the folks who tracked us down through the recent article in The News Tribune, “Holiday gifts for, from wine lovers“…

Flying M Air will be back in the Quincy/Wenatchee areas in May 2012 to offer wine-tasting tours and scenic flights along the Columbia River. Although our list of participating wineries is not confirmed, we expect to work with Beaumont Cellars, Martin-Scott Winery, Malaga Springs Winery, and Cave B Estate Winery.

Wine-tasting tours will be offered on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, weather permitting. All tours will originate at one of the participating wineries or at Wenatchee Pangborn Airport. Flights follow scenic routes, mostly along the Columbia River and land on winery property.

Tour pricing varies depending on starting point and wineries visited, with the lowest-priced wine-tasting tour operating between Beaumont Cellars and Cave B for $95/person. There is a 2-person minimum per flight. Passengers can spend up to one hour on the ground at each winery for tasting. Short scenic flights may be available for part of the season on weekends from Beaumont Cellars or Martin-Scott Winery for $50/person.

Gift certificates are available in dollar amounts that can be applied to any of our wine-tasting or scenic tours. Call us at 928-231-0196 for more information or to purchase a gift certificate.

And if you’re looking for the adventure vacation of a lifetime, consider joining us for our annual flight from Arizona to Washington. We’ve got room on board for two people and limited luggage. You pick the route and take up to three days to make the trip. Get on our mailing list to learn more as soon as details are available.

Arizona Highways Calls us the "Best Way to See Arizona in a Week"!

AZ Highways August 2009Best Way to See Arizona in a WeekFlying M Air is extremely pleased to learn that we’ve been mentioned in the August 2009 issue of Arizona Highways as the “Best Way to See Arizona in a Week.” We’re one of 100 “Best Of” places and organizations listed in this issue of Arizona’s premiere travel magazine.

The magazine’s write-up can be found on page 29 and is reproduced here for reference. Although it’s correct in mentioning that we travel from point to point by helicopter and stay in some great lodging, the price also includes at least one tour at each destination. We can make dining arrangements and recommendations, but we don’t cover the cost of meals.
