Scenic Flights of Acadia is happy to announce that we will be opening for the season on Saturday, June 27. We have taken this extra time to put safety protocols in place to ensure our guests and employees stay well. We will be flying 7 days per week from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, weather permitting. This year reservations are requested (online at scenicflightsofacadia.com or call 207-667-6527) and there is a two-person minimum as we are avoiding combining parties on the plane. We are requiring masks to be worn by all and we are disinfecting everything after each flight. This is a great time for our local friends to see what the area looks like from above. We are on Route 3 at the airport in Trenton, in the ‘little red booth’ for our 16th season!
