Hour-Long Tours

Photos from our scenic flights

We offer hour-long tours of the area. Call us to book a flight at a time that’s convenient for you and your party. This gives you the freedom to come up with your own itinerary so you can see the sights you want to see. If you’re not sure what you want to include in your tour, let us know and we’ll help you develop the best itinerary to meet your needs.

Scenic flights by appointment are handled as custom charter flights and a one-hour minimum flight time applies. Our regular hourly charter rates apply.

Unfortunately, we do not currently offer flights shorter than one hour in length. Due to typically low demand on an average day, it is not financially feasible to offer short flights other than at well-publicized events.

Price: $545/hour*; flights longer than an hour billed in 1/10 hour increments based on Hobbs meter.

Price Includes: Scenic flight in the Wenatchee area.

Price Does Not Include: Sales tax, gratuities.

Departs: Wenatchee Pangborn Airport. Other departure points may be available on request; some may require an additional fee for helicopter repositioning time.

Hop Rides

Flying M Air occasionally offers helicopter rides in conjunction with outdoor events such as Wenatchee Wings and Wheels and the annual Wenatchee Airport Fly In. Flight lengths and prices vary based on the venue but normally start at $40/person.
