$125 for 45-Minute Big Easy Aerial Tour for Two ($250 Value)

FAA-certified aviators pilot fixed-wing aircrafts over the Big Easy’s downtown draws and stunning swamplands during intimate aerial tours for two. Airborne pairs enjoy a new perspective from above the spotlighted Superdome to the historic French Quarter, which hugs the twisty Mississippi River. During each 45-minute flight (which includes taxi to and from the runway), Flight Academy of New Orleans’s knowledgeable guides talk about the city’s cultural and historical touchstones. Flights are conducted daily from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and flights that are canceled because of poor weather conditions will be rescheduled for a later date.
