Highlights
    What to Expect
    This flight also allows you to admire East Tennessee’s scenic Douglas Lake and the 700 foot long hydroelectric Douglas dam while heading towards lush green islands scattered throughout the bright blue lake. Douglas Lake covers 30,000 acres and 3 counties. It has over 500 miles of shoreline.  In the summer you get astonishing sun-glistening views of the water and the people enjoying their time on the lake. However, in the winter, the water level is lowered so you get majestic views of exposed islands and coves. As well as the beautiful lake, you will see the Great Smoky Mountains towards the southwest. On this flight you climb to a slightly higher altitude than on the Lake View flight allowing for better visibility of the National Park.

    Includes Douglas Lake View points of interest: Bass Pro Tournaments, Lighthouse Pointe Marina, Cowboy’s Seafood Restaurant and Wildlife Refuges.

    I was nervous while we were waiting, I’m terrified of heights. We got to talk to a pilot while we waited. He said he was scared of heights, and doesn’t even like to be on a ten foot ladder. But he said he feels very secure and safe. That kind of calmed my nerves a little. Once

    I am glad to hear you were able to enjoy your tour despite your fear of heights. Most people have the same fear and realize that it's not so bad being in a helicopter, they actually all really enjoy it too. We have a few pilots who aren't big fans of heights either but that doesn't stop them from flying. thank you for letting us help make some amazing memories, hope to see you again!

    I am very scared of heights, I’m talking like crying on the SkyBridge scared. They were very helpful talking me through it! Our pilot was Tony, he was great! It’s a short ride, but it felt much longer than what it was. I may not tackle the SkyBridge ever again, but I will

    It was neat, at one point the pilot said we were going 125 miles an hour and it seemed like we were still.

    The ride was great. The photos could be clicked with little more patience as they are equally important.
