Begin your air tour with a one hour flight from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon. Along the way, enjoy the view from the air as you pass over the Tonto National Forest; make a scenic pass through the Red Rock formations of Sedona; and soar past the San Francisco Peaks, Painted Desert and the Navajo Indian Reservation before arriving at the Grand Canyon.
Upon arriving at the Grand Canyon, your pilot will begin the scenic overflight on a route that only a few companies are allowed to fly. This 20-30 minute overflight of one of nature's most spectacular sights will give you a view of the Grand Canyon seen by only a handful of people as you fly 1,000 feet above the rim of the Grand Canyon. After completing the overflight of the Grand Canyon, enjoy a short, one hour flight back to Phoenix.
