Our opening day for the 2021 season is Saturday, May 8 - just in time for Mother’s Day! We will continue practicing our cleaning and disinfecting protocol as we did win 2020 to keep everyone well. See us to see Acadia the Best Way!

It’s a Numbers Game!

Good afternoon, friends!

Today’s blog has been taken over by the two new pilots, Infazal and Ben. It is a pleasure to meet you! We were going to try to write some words to keep all of our wonderful followers up to date, but we’ve come to an unfortunate conclusion.

We’re not much for words. We just couldn’t come up with the words to describe this incredible summer. Instead, we decided to use some numbers.

2 3 33 39 2 1 7 667 10 50 65

 

Two new pilots have joined the ranks of Scenic Flights of Acadia. We want to introduce ourselves! Stop by and say hi. We would love to meet you!

Infazal Baksh is our first new pilot, hailing from the wonderful State of New York. He has a four-year degree from Farmingdale State College in Aviation Administration. He loves to play the guitar, hike, and explore the State of Maine.

Ben Acker is our second pilot who comes from the big city of Portland, Maine. He also has a four-year degree from Bridgewater State University in Aviation Science. He, too, enjoys exploring the beautiful area. 

Three new bubble windows have been installed on our two scenic planes. These new windows increase visibility and make taking wonderful pictures of Acadia National Park much easier. Come and give them a try!

33 flights on our busiest day ever! On July 3rd of this year, we managed a whopping 33 flights in one day! Between three pilots and planes, we gave everyone a safe, fun, scenic flight of the Downeast area.

Speaking of our busiest day, we have to mention our friends from New Jersey. On July 3rd, we had one group of 39 new friends from New Jersey fly with us. A neighborhood group from the Garden State organized this excursion. We were happy to welcome them and share the views of our wonderful area.

We’ve had two marriage proposals this summer at Scenic Flights of Acadia. The first was during a flight. The husband-to-be was so quiet about it. Infazal had no idea what was taking place behind him!

The second proposal was just last week. It happened before the passengers even got on the plane. When Ben asked who was going to sit in front of the airplane, the husband-to-be said, “Excuse me, Ben, but I have a slightly more important question first.” He proceeded to get down on one knee and proposed!

We have one new Instagram account! If you use the social media platform, feel free to follow us at @ScenicFlightsofAcadia for some wicked views from wherever you may be. With our new Instagram account, we have seven new photos! Check out a wide variety of pictures, from sunsets to rainbows!

We have 667 followers on our Facebook page. If you’re not one of them, you’re missing out on information, photos, reviews, promotions, and more! Follow us to keep up to date on all of the new information.

This is the 10th season the Vroom family has owned and operated Scenic Flights of Acadia! Before they owned it, they worked it. David was a tour pilot for the company. Vicki worked at the front desk.

Although the Vrooms have owned the company for 10 years, Scenic Flights of Acadia has been in operation for over 50 years! Come to the booth to check out the oldest aerial tour company on the field! 

And lastly, 65, the number of days left for you to fly with Scenic Flights of Acadia this year! We will be closing for the season at the end of October, giving you 66 days to go for a tour. We would love to see you this season.

Let our experience make your experience unforgettable! Come by to say hi!
