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.

This offer expires at 4:00pm on Saturday June 17th, 2017.

$35 Helicopter Rides at 2014 Wenatchee Wings & Wheels

Flying M Air is pleased to be a part of the Wenatchee Wings and Wheels event in East Wenatchee for the third year in a row.

Ride Route

This year, we’ll be offering $35 per person helicopter rides from the Eastmont Park soccer field, just north of the main event grounds. We’ll be offering rides one day only, on Saturday, October 4, 2014 from 10 AM until 3 PM.

Rides will depart the soccer field and head northwest to the bridge at Olds Station before turning southbound over Wenatchee. We’ll cross the river again at the south end bridge and return to our starting point. The time of the ride will vary depending on flying conditions and passenger load, but it covers roughly 10 miles. Although the route will vary slightly to minimize noise to people on the ground, we cannot take requests for detours off our published route.

Price Per Person: $35 + tax

Payment Methods Accepted: Cash, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express

Recommended Ages: 5 and up

Weight Restrictions: We cannot take passengers weighing over 275 pounds. The seat belt must fit around each passenger’s waist; we do not have seat belt extenders.

See you in the park on Saturday!
