Sightseeing Tours

Sightseeing Tour Information

Our sightseeing tours are $195 for up to three people and last 45 minutes from engine start to stop. An average tour will take you over to Blue Point, then west along the shoreline of Lake Huron, over the bridges, down the river to Stag Island, then back to the airport. There is no set route, so passengers are encouraged to ask about what they would like to see. We do our best to make it happen.

Training for Additional License Ratings

Huron Flight Services, in addition to training new Recreational or Private pilots, also offers training on the following ratings.

Night Rating

The Night Rating allows the Private Pilot to operate any time he or she wishes during the day or night. It provides flexibility and a certain safety margin when daytime planned trips must extend into night hours. Requirements include a minimum of 5 hours of dual night flight time, 5 hours of solo night flight time, and 10 hours of dual instrument time.

VFR OTT Rating

The VFR OTT (Over-The-Top) Rating allows the non-instrument rated pilot to operate over the cloud layer during the daytime cruise portion of a flight under certain conditions. It does not allow a pilot to fly through the clouds.
Requirements include a minimum of 15 hours of dual instrument time of which up to 5 hours may be instrument ground time.

Instrument Rating

The Instrument Rating allows a pilot to fly in Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC), for example, when cloud layers obscure the pilot’s view of the ground. An instrument-rated pilot is able to fly and maintain situational awareness strictly by using instruments and avionics.
Requirements include a minimum of 40 hours of instrument time of which up to 20 hours may be in a Flight Training Device (flight simulator).

Seaplane and Multi-Engine Rating

The Seaplane and Multi-Engine Ratings allow pilots the flexibility of flying these two other types of airplanes.
Seaplane training will include a minimum of 7 hours of light time according to the Seaplane Instructor Guide (TP 12668).
