Book early and get the day of your choice.

The summer of 2006 was an incredible season for flying bi-plane rides. The demand was so high that we ended up flying quite a few rides later than normal so that we wouldn't disappoint any out of town visitors or individuals trying to celebrate a special occasion.

 What we discovered is that flying a long ride in the final hour before the sun set behind the ridge of the Olympic Mountains, offered the pilots, a great deal of personal inner satisfaction as well as our passengers.  So now, we offer one sunset flight each weekday evening designed to capture early evening lighting and the golden reflection on the skyscrapers over the water before the shade of the mountains fall across Elliott Bay.

 Sunset flights are arranged individually by reservation only. Since our pilot must actually return to Boeing Field after having gone home already, we ask that the length of a Sunset Flight be at least 40 minutes or longer (#5 or longer).  We can't make it work economically to offer the Sunset Flights for a 15 or 20 minute ride unless we can get several rides sequentially. This will work too, but one must go earlier than the other.

Remember that "sunset" changes every day. Prior to June 21st, it gets later by about 1 minute each day. After June 21st, the days start to shorten so that sunset becomes earlier 1 minute each day.  When we discuss your flight on the phone, we look up the anticipated sunset time and work backwards to determine our departure time. That is the absolute latest we can depart as we have legal requirements to be back on the field before dusk. There is no problem going a bit earlier. The longer wavelengths of light are very evident any time after 7 PM.

If you reach our voice mail on our reservation line at 206-730-1412 or 206-730-1412, indicate that you have read the page on Sunset Flights and wish to make a reservation. Please leave your name, phone number and date you wish to fly. We will call you back within 24 hours.
