    Night Sightseeing Flight

    See the bright lights of New Orleans at night on a sightseeing flight over the city! While listening to commentary from the pilot, relax in a small sightseeing plane. Gaze down at illuminated city attractions such as the Port of New Orleans, Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Mississippi River and more, and admire nighttime views of the French Quarter. If there is a sight that you particularly want to see, simply let the pilot know! The itinerary is flexible and can be tailored to the sights that your group wants to see. Board your four seat airplane at the Flight Academy of New Orleans, take a seat, and then soar into the air above the city. Watch the flashing lights of the runway fade as the white lights of the city dominate the nightscape stretched before you. As you soar through the skies above the Mississippi River, listen to your pilot's tales about the city and its countless sights. Hear about different New Orleans neighborhoods as you pass above the French Quarter, and admire the streetlights casting a glow on its architecture. Peer past the lit-up skyscrapers of the Central Business District and soar around Mercedes-Benz Superdome, where New Orleans Saints American football team play. Loop around the domed stadium and have your camera ready to capture sights of the Port of New Orleans with its 2-mile (3-km) wharf. Glide a short distance from downtown New Orleans to admire aerial views of Southern Louisiana's bayous--the slow-moving streams of water around the Mississippi River. After admiring the nighttime views of the county's famous wetlands, loop back into the city and touch down at the start point where your experience finishes.

    Fly a Plane in New Orleans!

    Learn how to fly a plane in New Orleans on an exhilarating 50-minute flying lesson that includes sights of the mighty Mississippi River, the historical French Quarter and Mercedes-Benz Superdome! The must-do experience includes 20 minutes of on-ground tuition, followed by 30 minutes in the air under the watchful eye of the pilot -- an instructor certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Help control the plane during takeoff and landing, and enjoy your airborne time to take control and maneuver the plane through the skies! No license or prior experience is necessary. Meet your pilot at the Flight Academy of New Orleans, and spend the first 20 minutes of your experience learning about the pre-flight procedure that all pilots do before flying. Study the instrument panel to work out the different controls, learn about the engine start sequence, and chat through the basics of flying such as taxiing the aircraft and preparing for takeoff.

    Then, head out to the ramp to step aboard your small sightseeing plane and take your seat in the cockpit. Under the watchful eye of the pilot sat at your side, launch the aircraft into the sky, and then enjoy roughly 30 minutes of free flying through the air.

    Learn how to maneuver the plane up and down, to the right and to the left as you soar through the skies around New Orleans, above the plantations and swampland that typify the city's outskirts, and then above New Orleans itself. Gaze down at Mercedes-Benz Superdome--home stadium of New Orleans Saints American football team--and the bright lights of the city laid in front of you. Weave through the skies above the French Quarter, and see the mighty Mississippi River snaking through town.

    When it's time to return to ground, listen to your pilots instructions for touchdown, and then help guide the plane back to the runway. After touching down, your pilot will sign your logbook that officially records your flight over New Orleans.

    Note: There are a max of two observers allowed ($115 per observer must be paid on location). Please provide the names of your observers in the Special Requests field, they are not guaranteed unless they have been confirmed.

    Ayanna M.
  • I have taken two tours with Vimbly and am looking forward to many more in the future! They have a wide variety of opportunities, many of which I would never have thought of doing. Both tours that I attended were well organized, interesting, and fun. I look to Vimbly for ideas and activities when I want to find something fun to do.
    Karen R.
  • Used Vimbly 3 times now: booked a Knife Skills class at Institute of Culinary Education, booked tickets to Improvised Shakespeare (HOW DID THEY EVEN GET ACCESS TO THESE???), and booked tickets to an Improv show at the Upright Citizen's Brigade. Really simple and efficient way to find something to do and book it right away without ever having to pick up a phone. I like that you can search by date and also category.
    Amanda K.
  • As far as a rating, I'd absolutely give your site a 10. It's easy to use, easy to find whats upcoming, unambiguous and concise. It's something my mother could use without calling me seven times with questions. I've already pointed some friends to the site, and you can be sure I'll be using it in the future.

  • I already have recommended it to a friend! Several in fact. The site is such a good idea and I love how the people at Church Street knew we were coming and treated us like their own customers and not coupon redeemers. My girlfriend and I will definitely be going back there and are already looking on your site for what to do next weekend.
    Evan W.
  • Easily one of the best dates I've been on, and I have Vimbly to thank for the idea. Planning to use it again while I'm in the city for the next month, and already reminded my coworkers about it.
