New Orleans

After a journey spanning several weeks, a few thousand miles, and an extended stay in Lake Charles waiting for storms to pass, we arrived this morning and are flying over New Orleans today.

We'll be doing camera work and flying in support of the Zurich Golf Classic each day, and offering passenger flights as well.

This is our first passenger stop on the Covering Communities Tour, and we're looking forward to the sights and sounds of New Orleans at 1000 feet and up.

Sights? New Orleans has a wonderful mix of the old and the new, the city and the bayou.

Sounds? No promises, but we happen to be here during New Orleans Jazz Fest.

To book a flight, just speak with our reservations agents at 650-969-8100, or visit us online.

Look for us over the city, and above the golf during these coming days.
