The Deal

  • $109 for a hands-on introductory flight experience ($199 value)

The one-hour flight experience begins with a 30-minute orientation on the ground, followed by a half hour in the skies during which clients assist with taking the plane to cruising altitude and man the controls for most of the flight.

Sea to Sky Air

Seasoned staff pilots orchestrate Sea to Sky Air's ascents for sightseeing, travelling, and instructional purposes. Pilots secure views of Mother Nature’s most flattering angles during flight tours that whirl above Squamish Valley, Whistler, and Vancouver Harbour. Stationed in Squamish, the crew also coordinates charters to surrounding travel destinations, often taking off from Vancouver International Airport.

Reviews

I literally and figuratively had the ride of my life, and I cannot wait to do this again.
