After the pilot briefs guests on the aircraft's controls and flight mechanics, groups lift off from the tarmac at Potomac Airfield for a narrated tour above the Potomac River. Passengers listen to recorded audio on a provided iPod, soaking in historical facts and anecdotes as the pilot soars over Fort Washington, Mount Vernon, Marine Corps Base Quantico, and a nearby ship's graveyard. The pilot may also fly low over the escape route John Wilkes Booth followed after he assassinated President Lincoln.
At the end of the tour, participants celebrate successful flights with sips of champagne. Each flight is a group tour, and participants may be seated next to other customers.
While Groupon customers may purchase tour admission for one, Mid Atlantic Charters requires a minimum of two attendees to start the Potomac River tour.
Mid Atlantic Charters
An FAA-approved private flight charter service, Mid Atlantic Charters employs a team of pilots who ferry passengers from Washington D.C. to the airfields that dot the landscape of the Chesapeake Bay, New England, and the Outer Banks. Aboard a turbo-charged Piper Seneca II, the pilots also fly passengers on narrated sightseeing tours over famous sites such as the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Kent Island, the Bay Bridge, and Mount Vernon.
