2014 Testimonials:

Horizon Flight Center provided my family and I a fun and exciting flight experience all while creating great memories seeing all the amazing holiday lights Hampton Roads has to offer!  After years of sitting in long lines, we could now view the spectacular displays in every city with no wait at all and from the air!  Immediately upon arriving to the flight center, we were greeted with a warm welcome by our pilot and other staff members which made us feel very comfortable.  Our pilot was quite fun and educational and our flight was very safe while seated comfortably in the heated cabin.  We certainly recommend this experience to anyone looking for fun family activities during the holiday season! – Mitchell 

Thanks for helping make 2014 memorable! I can’t wait to do it again! – Adam 

What an experience!!! Our pilot created a night of “Holiday Lights Tour” that my grandkids nor I will never forget. We toured the entire Tidewater area by Cessna aircraft and saw downtown Norfolk, the Naval base with decorated ships, The Norfolk Botanical Gardens lights, Norfolk airport with the Chesapeake Bay Bridge off our wing tip, and then dropped to an incredible 700 ft to see the Virginia Beach Boardwalk holiday lights. You could almost tell the makes of vehicles viewing the lights. From there we proceeded to Oceana Jet Base and back to our starting point at Horizon Flight Center. The kids were amazed to see Lynnhaven Mall from the air! Huge kudos to our pilot who provided expert commentary with a touch of humor to delight us all. – Ron
