Love is in the Air Tour

The state motto is "Virginia is for Lovers", so when we realized the flight pattern of the Colonial Tour creates the shape of a heart, we were inspired to create the "Love is in the Air Tour". Perfect for an engagement proposal, wedding day, anniversary, or a romantic date night! Passengers are welcome to bring champagne or something special to enjoy while flying in the shape of a heart over Colonial Virginia.
