Air Tours Texas and its dedicated pilots sweep passengers away in swift new planes for expertly guided airborne journeys. A one-hour co-pilot experience sidekicks an aspiring plane-jockey with an experienced pilot, introducing participants to the basic maneuvers and secret language of aircraft. Thirty-minute tours allow two people to fete themselves, the air, and the ceaseless rotation of the earth all at once. Ensconced in plush leather seats, passengers can drink in the stunning scenery of the Texas Hill Country. From an auspicious perch in the sky, witness the beauty of the region's shimmering lakes, experience the majesty of its rolling hills, and pinpoint the location of the hole where Elvis is hawking old Elvis records. The 30-minute city flight, alternately, takes passengers 2,500 feet above the city center of San Antonio before wheeling south toward the Alamo Dome, allowing the pristine urban artwork, glittering lights, and celebrity buildings to take center stage. During the sunset flight for two, passengers watch the dipping sun cast rosy orange and pink hues over Texas Hill Country, imbuing the rolling terrain with a muted blush while splashing color on the surfaces of shimmering lakes.
Flights depart from San Antonio International Airport; call Air Tours Texas to reserve a spot for a given day. Hill Country tours depart by reservation each day from 9 a.m. to 90 minutes before sunset. Since each plane holds up to five passengers, two couples may be paired on a flight, offering a chance for an impromptu, one-of-a-kind double date.
