Aircraft Adventures and Flight Experiences

We've carefully assembled our favorite flying adventures into classic aircraft experiences and excursions that you will enjoy, available each flying day at CCAS Maine. We'll take you aloft over the rivers, lakes and mountains of Maine. You'll see wildlife in its natural setting, beautiful foliage in the fall and the Appalachian terminus -- get a bird's eye view of what makes Maine so very special.

For pilots and flying enthusiasts, we offer customized floatplane, skiplane and tailwheel bush flying experiences and adventures. Perhaps you have a seaplane rating but don't own a floatplane. No problem--we'll provide a plane and pilot so that you can get out on the lakes and obtain some actual experience in the Maine woods! We also do the same for tailwheel qualified ski flying enthusiasts. CCAS Millinocket is home to some of the best ski and water flying terrain in the Northeast.

The PA-12 Super Cruiser takes off from Caribou Lake for another North Woods adventure--this can be you!So, what are you waiting for? Dreams delayed are dreams denied--let's go flying! Give us a call and we'll help make the arrangements.

A. The West Brancher

We'll take you aloft over the exhilarating scenery of the West Branch of the Penobscot River, with spectacular views of lakes, rivers and mountains. You will likely spot the rafters as they plunge through the rapids-quite a sight from our lofty perch. Mount Katahdin will be right by us the whole time! Our airplanes sit one to three people, so be sure to bring friends.

B. The LakerMajestic Mount Katahdin from the Twin Lakes as we return to Millinocket in the Cub

This spectacular flight takes in some of the largest lake systems in New England. Steeped in the lore of the great North Woods, Ambejejus, Pemadumcook and Millinocket Lake will roll under your wings. Your flight will pass majestic Mount Katahdin, Maine's tallest peak and terminus of the Appalachian trail.

C. In Front of the Mountain

This introductory flight experience includes a trip to the environs of majestic Mount Katahdin for an exhilarating and unique look at the highest mountain in Maine. Look up; look down-the mountain is all around!

If you've read Bill Bryson's Appalachian Trail adventure opus "A Walk in the Woods" you'll know that Bill met his match on the trails of Maine's famed "100 mile wilderness". Fear not-you won't be walking, but flying along some of the most amazing scenery east of the Mississippi, including Gulf Hagas, the Grand Canyon of the East.

E. I Want to Be a Lumberjack (with apologies to Monty Python)

How wood used to get to the paper mill...So, you want to be a lumberjack; or at least see where and how they worked. Hop on for this flight because we're going up the East Branch of the Penobscot River (and not in a bateau) to lovely Patten for some interesting terrain flying in the shadow of Mount Katahdin. Then it's back down the river, zooming over the rapids, which beats poling wood.

F. The Sinatra

That's right-we'll do it your way. Your flight adventure customized the way you want. All of our experiences may be mixed and matched-we're here to please and let you make the most of vacation and visit to the Great North Woods! Ski plane flying is just about as good as it gets!
