See the historic city with a view from a Cessna 172
Soar away from and land back at Carlisle Airport
This sightseeing flight for two is the perfect way to see Carlisle from a birds-eye view. You and a friend take off from (and land at) Carlisle Airport in a nifty Cessna 172 plane and whizz high up to the skies to take in breathtaking sights of this scenic city. Carlisle is drenched in history with its origins of being a 1st century Roman outpost; you don't get a lot older than that. The city is also home to an 11th century castle and what better way to see it than an aerial view? This is a perfect high flying experience to see the city from an entirely different perspective.
