"The pristine waters and sparkling white beaches of Southwest Florida draw visitors from around the world, seeking to capture the essence of the magnificent beauty and outdoor ambiance of this slice of paradise. Aside from the world class beaches, it's the setting of scattered islands and the wilds of the Everglades that truly make this a unique destination. Flying above it is the only way to truly take it all in. Soaring high enough to capture the spectacular vistas, yet low enough to get a close up view of the natural and remote landscapes. And, of course, it's always exciting when we see the dolphins and manatees that call our area home."
