Planes depart from Signature Flight Support at St. Petersburg–Clearwater International Airport, then head north and west to afford passengers a view of the beach and the ocean. After traveling south along the coastline, the tour turns east to fly over Tampa Bay vistas, including the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. Both English- and Spanish-speaking pilots are available to man flights.
With a fleet that ranges from the low-key Cessna 150 and 172 to a multi-engine jet, the FAA-licensed pilots of Beach Aviation take to the skies for short jaunts and longer, flights. Discovery tours depart from nearby airports and cruise the wild, blue yonder along the coast, unveiling a bird’s-eye view of the local wildlife, downtown areas, and other picturesque scenery. Beach Aviation’s seasoned airmen also run instructional courses for aspiring pilots, teaching them the art of ascending, descending, and dodging territorial weather balloons.
