Seattle Scenic Flights’ skilled pilots shepherd sightseers on ethereal odysseys through flocks of cumulus clouds to see landmarks from a novel vantage point. Passengers soar above the azure mirror of Lake Washington, enjoying aerial liberty like a sparrow on parole alongside three to five companions. Safeco and Qwest Fields nestle sleepily among the resplendent urban landscape of downtown Seattle as stunned bird’s-eye viewers gaze from their steely craft. Fishermen’s Terminal and Ballard Locks unfurl below, framing an exhilarating fly-by of the Space Needle and eye-level scolding of Godzilla. For extra fees, guests can upgrade to 45-minute flights ($69 for groups of 3; $99 for groups of 5) or one-hour flights ($129 for groups of 3; $197 for groups of 5).
Alternatively, two guests can take in ocean views, cavorting orcas, and lush landscapes as they soar toward the San Juan Islands during high-flying lessons that include about two hours of total flight time to and from the islands. Once landed on the islands, tourists deplane for two hours to shop for souvenirs, savor the local fare, or snap pictures of sentient island garden gnomes before heading back toward the mainland.
Though Seattle Scenic Flights sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Seattle Scenic Flights
Seattle Scenic Flights' skilled pilots offer you a chance to see the city in a brand-new way: from the clouds. On flights ranging in duration from 30 minutes to 60 minutes, you'll get a bird's-eye view of landmarks such as Lake Washington, Safeco Field, Qwest Field, and Fisherman's Terminal. Enjoy aerial freedom like a sparrow on parole as you soar above the Space Needle, downtown Bellevue, and the University of Washington.
Seattle Scenic Flights can also set up aspiring pilots on an introductory flight lesson to the San Juan Islands. You and a friend will commandeer a Cessna Skyhawk with an FAA Certified Flight Instructor for a flight to the islands, where you'll then deplane for two hours to shop for souvenirs, savor the local fare, or snap pictures before heading back toward the mainland. Your flight counts 100% towards the FAA requirements for pilot training and will be documented in an official pilot logbook.
