Central Oregon Scenic Flights
Come fly with us and experience a breathtaking journey of Central Oregon from 10,000 ft. Depart from either the Bend or Sunriver airport with a group of up to 3. Moving along at roughly 170mph in our Cessna R182, you will be able to cover many of the most popular sites around in just about an hour. Choose one of the following options and bring your camera!
The Full Loop
Depart from the airport and head south to Paulina Peak. On the way there you'll pass over the lava flows and the Deschutes River. Then we'll turn to Bachelor and wrap around the west side of the mountain for views of skiers and downhill mountain bikers. Followed by splitting the gap between South Sister and Broken Top. Take in the awe-inspiring views and snap some pictures before we begin our descent from 10,000ft and head back home. Pass right over the Old Mill and beautiful Deschutes river as we enter the traffic pattern and grease the landing.
Bachelor & Back
Depart from the airport and head directly to Mt. Bachelor. It's about a 15 minute trip to the Summit. We'll take a lap around the mountain for an excellent view of the lodge and all the high lakes in the area, then we'll fly between South Sister and Broken Top. It is a truly incredible feeling to be navigating through the mountain peaks. On the descent we will pick up some speed and be back over Bend in no time. Look for the iconic smoke stacks in the Old Mill District on the way back to the airport.
Paulina Peak & Back
Depart from the airport and head to Paulina Peak. As we climb you will find the massive lava flows that edge up to the Deschutes river. Paulina and East lake lie just beyond with the Newberry Volcano nestled in between. A lap around the Caldera and then we'll head back and pass over town before touching down at the airport.
What to expect
We never know for sure what the weather is going to do until the day of the scheduled flight. We will be in contact with you as your date approaches to let you know if the flight will depart when scheduled. Of course we want every passenger to have the best experience possible so we will be monitoring winds aloft in an attempt to minimize turbulence. If turbulence is a concern we recommend scheduling an early morning or an evening flight.
We recommend bringing a light jacket for early morning and evening flights. Plan to arrive 20 minutes before your departure time to fill out paperwork and load into the aircraft.
We understand that plans change and life happens, so we will refund the entire amount if the cancellation notice is provided prior to 48 hrs before departure. This gives us a little time to try and reschedule the aircraft and pilot. A cancellation notice within 48 hrs will trigger a fee of $100 and the remaining amount will be refunded. The day of the flight we will have pilot and aircraft ready to go so we cannot give a refund or reschedule a "no show" so please arrive on time!
Cancellations due to weather can be refunded in the full amount or rescheduled.
