Durango Air Tours offers sightseeing flights and airplane rides over Northern New Mexico, Durango, and Southwest Colorado.  Enjoy the breathtaking views from the sky!  Take the all-inclusive one hour Discovery Flight, the 40-minute Mountains Only Flight, or make it your own custom flight.  You will never forget this experience!  Maybe you're in Durango for a short time and want to see as much as you can.  Or maybe you just want to take your family for an airplane ride.  There is nothing like flying in a small aircraft to appreciate the grandeur and beauty of the Rocky Mountains.  

Our tour operation is certified by the FAA.  Flights operate from the  General Aviation terminal (FBO) at the Durango La Plata County Airport.  Your safety and comfort are our top priorities, which is why we only fly in the morning while the air is still smooth.  Sometimes the flight will be cancelled due to weather or other circumstances.


Flying is my passion!  Besides being an experienced tour pilot, I am currently an airline captain and have been flying for 20 years.  My airline profession takes me into the mountains every day that I fly, mostly into Aspen, CO, one the most difficult airports to fly into in the world.  I am certified as an Airline Transport Pilot and meet the most stringent medical standards.  But what I love most is flying the smaller aircraft like this Piper Comanche where you experience the true, real meaning of flight.


Your safety is my top priority and I will make the flight as comfortable as possible for you.  I have plenty of information I'd love to share with you during our tour, or you can just sit back, relax, and enjoy the flight with some music!



You will be flying in a beautiful, classic Piper Comanche.  One of the "roomier" small airplanes, it is also fast, so you can see more.  We can cover nearly 150 miles during our one-hour Discovery Flight.  It is a low-wing aircraft, which is unusual for a typical sightseeing tour, but it offers you the chance to look "up" at the mountains as we fly around them.  The Comanche is equipped with Bose noise-cancelling headsets to enhance your flight experience.

* NOTE:  Passengers must be able to step up onto the wing (2-3 ft. above the ground) to board the aircraft.
