Adirondack Scenic Flights

See Whiteface Mountain, Lake Placid, Saranac Lake and more ~ all from 5000 feet up! Your Adirondack Adventure Starts Here!

The day awaits you to explore the Adirondacks by air! Each scenic flight is a totally unique Lake Placid attraction in itself.

You can choose from spectacular views of the High Peaks, cruise over Olympic venues or navigate above winding Adirondack waterways.

Our safety record is perfect since 1968 when Adirondack Flying Service was started, and our knowledgeable pilots will answer any questions you have, point out landmarks and areas of interest, and help you discover more about the history of the Adirondacks.

“Put a flight around the mountains and lakes on your ‘must do’ list.”

“You cannot truly appreciate the stunning beauty of the area unless you experience it from the air. The perspective of where the town is in relation to the surrounding mountains and sightseeing attractions is only available from this vantage point.

As a private pilot I always take the time to see an area I visit from the air. It is a unique way to learn the landscape and see things you would never see from the ground.

We had a great guide who had an intimate knowledge of the area, pointing out all of the sights and many you will never see any other way but from 5000 feet up. Put a flight around the mountains and lakes on your “must do” list.”
