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. Lessons 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.

The savvy pilots also have experience working with aerial photographers and aspire to help patrons capture stunning footage or photos with a special harness that allows them to film or shoot with the chopper door open, as long as they promise to not let any flying monkeys in.
