Our prices are based on our operational costs for flying the airplanes. You typically pay for flight time only. Longer stand-by times for the pilot can be negotiated at the time of purchase. If it's a quick turn around, I usually have plenty to keep myself busy at your destination.

Our Beaver Floatplane Details
Speed: 110 mph
Range with full fuel: 500 miles
Capacity with full fuel: 630 pounds of passengers and cargo.
Seats: 1 pilot and 7 passengers
Cabin space: Cavernous. A single passenger seat in the cockpit with 2 bench seats in the cabin allow for a spacious ride for 5 adult passengers or a combination of kids and adults and still have plenty of room for reasonably sized bags.
*Please note that with the amphibious floats installed on our airplane, we are not able to fill all 7 passenger seats with adults.
So you may be thinking, "what if I'm by myself?".
If the cost is a concern, we encourage you to fly with friends and family. The more people we can add to the flight, the less each passenger will pay for a seat and you'll get to share an experience that will be difficult to describe to those left at home. If you happen to book the exact same flight at the exact same time as someone else, we think you should probably meet that person anyway and you can both save some money.
Rather than leaving you hanging on what it might cost to fly with us, we included some typical trips where people might be going with what they'd be taking with them. These flight scenarios are based on maximum weight and fuel for the aircraft.
