Custom Air Tours & Charters

           You dig your toes into the warm beach sand, watch the waves roll towards you, and sip your beverage of choice in a lounge chair.  You don’t think life could possibly get any better, until a pilot taps on your shoulder and says it’s time to move on to the next adventure.  After a short walk to a pier, you get onto a whale watching boat which will take you out to sea where you’ll be mere feet away from beautiful Pacific Grey and Humpback Whales.  Following the boat tour you’ll hop on a private Westwind airplane for a beautiful overflight tour of the bay on the coast of Mexico.  Just yesterday you were playing the 18-hole executive course in sunny Scottsdale, Arizona, and now you’re on a 2 day excursion to Rocky Point… as crazy as this sounds, it’s a very real possibility with Westwind Air Service’s custom charters!

            Based out of Phoenix’s northernmost airport, Deer Valley, Westwind operates many different published tours on a daily basis.  Just like the greatest restaurants, we have “off menu” options through our charter department.  Not feeling that adventurous but still looking for something different and unique to your tastes?  That’s fine, because we also offer the option to customize any of our tours. (Flying in a private plane to Sedona for a wine tour doesn’t sound too bad, does it?)  While charters mean you're paying for the whole aircraft, it affords you the flexibility to schedule a custom itinerary around your own schedule and take 2 or 3 passengers, or even up to 9 people! 

            Mexico isn't the only breathtaking air tour or charter... the red rocks of Sedona are a sure way to capture anyone’s attention as well. For those who are spiritual, Sedona is internationally renowned for its energy vortex hot spots where it’s said that you can actually feel different types of energy.  The best way to see the area is undoubtedly a private plane, with the option to either change to a helicopter, bicycle, jeep, or simply go hiking.  No matter your mode of transportation on the ground in the red rock forest, on this tour you will enjoy a narrated, scenic flight over the Tonto National Forest and Mazatzal Wilderness, then wind up the Verde Valley and experience the breathtaking overflight of Sedona.
