Frequently Asked Questions
Where do the flights take place?
We are located in Cumming, GA and most of our flights launch from an area about 35-40 miles north of downtown Atlanta. We utilize several different launch sites in the area to take advantage of varying wind conditions and directions.
What will we see?
On clear days you can see approximately 40 to 50 miles and take in the Atlanta Skyline, Stone Mountain, Kennesaw Mountain and the beginnings of the Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountain ranges of North Georgia. And, our local attraction, Lake Sidney Lanier, a 30,000 plus acre man-made lake built and maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It is one of the largest man-made lakes East of the Mississippi River and it is the most visited Corps of Engineers lake in the country. If the winds are with us, we may even be able fly over the beautiful blue waters of Lanier.

We meet approximately one hour before sunrise and 2 hours before sunset. You should also feel free to call anytime with questions or contact us directly if there are special circumstances you need help with or that we should know about.

Most flights are about an hour. However they can be as short as 45 minutes or as long and one hour and 30 minutes. It just depends on weather conditions and landing sites.
What should I wear?
NO OPENED TOED SHOES, SANDALS, FLIP-FLOPS OR HIGH HEELS. Otherwise, just wear whatever is comfortable to you for an outdoor activity.
