Air Tours Texas’ dedicated pilots sweep passengers away on expertly guided airborne journeys in swift new planes. 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 ecstatic duos 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 sweeping topography 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 takes passengers 3,000 feet above downtown Austin, granting passengers unique views of the city skyline to observe the glittering lights of celebrity buildings and the state capitol.
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. Hill Country tours depart by reservation each day from 9 a.m. until 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.
