Aviation Day Rides

For the fifth year in a row, Flying M Air is pleased to be offering “hop rides” at the Aviation Day Event on Saturday, June 17, 2017 from 9 AM to 3 PM at Wenatchee Pangborn Memorial Airport in East Wenatchee.

Our Helicopter in Flight

This year we’ll have three helicopters on the flight line with experienced pilots ready to take passengers on a tour of the Wenatchee area. Rides will depart the airport and then head straight out along Grant Road to the Columbia River. You tell your pilot where you want to go from there: up river as far as the Wenatchee River Confluence or down river to Malaga. From there, it’s back to the airport for the conclusion of the ride.

Rides are $40 per person. We accept cash and credit card at the event or you can pre-purchase your ticket online in our online store.

We can take up to 3 passengers per flight, but weight limits apply. There is a per seat weight limit of 275 pounds, which is strictly enforced for safety reasons.

With three helicopters on the line this year, we’re hoping to keep wait times short. Bring the family! This is a great event for all ages, which plenty of other things to do and see at the airport. Learn more here.
