Other destinations are possible such as flying over your house or cottage. All sightseeing flights must depart and arrive at Rockcliffe airport, and must take place during daylight.

How far in advance do I have to book?

Flight availability depends on aircraft and flight instructor availability. To make sure you get the time you want, we recommend booking about a week in advance. Often same-day or next-day bookings are possible though your preferred time may not be available.
