Scenic Airplane Tours
Looking for something to do once you have arrived in Northern Michigan? Why not take to the air again?
Orchard Beach Aviation has been conducting scenic flights over beautiful Lake Michigan for years. The scenic flights have been enjoyed by thousands wanting to see Lake Michigan beaches, Manistee, Portage Lake and surrounding areas from a bird’s eye view.
Flights are typically flown over two routes: Downtown Manistee and the Lake Michigan shoreline or the Onekama/Portage Lake area. Choose either one for $30 per person (two person minimum). Special flight requests are more than welcome and we will be happy to oblige as best we can. Call (231-723-8095) or stop in for more information.
Scenic flights make great gifts and can be enjoyed by all ages.
Flights are conducted all year round from the Manistee County Blacker Airport (by reservation late Oct – early May) and gift certificates are available. During the summer flights are available 10am to 6pm most days. You can drop in or call ahead to make a reservation.
We are located off of US-31 about five miles north of Manistee and about 1/2 mile south of the Little River Casino Resort at the Manistee County Blacker Airport:
