Horizon Scenic Air Tours’ professional pilots soar over the festive sights of Norfolk and Virginia Beach gussied up in holiday splendor, luring impressed gasps from passengers. A closed-cabin Cessna keeps up to three passengers warm and toasty as they gaze out at downtown Norfolk and watch the Norfolk Botanical Garden’s Garden of Light unfold beneath them. The winged sleigh then dashes down the Virginia Beach coastline to witness the Holiday of Lights display and hang mistletoe in the clouds high above pedestrians on the boardwalk. The pilot does double duty as a tour guide, pointing out sites glittering far below and concerned stars twinkling in career centers overhead.
