Breath Taking! — Well worth it! We went Invermere on a 2 day getaway and I wanted to surprise my wife with something a little special. Boy did this fit the bill. After a few communications with Pete, we set up a morning flight. Pete advised the recent smoky conditions could be a little challenging but the weather cooperated and we were set. My wife had never flown in a small plane before but Pete set her at ease and up we went. The views were spectacular. Pete's knowledge of the area was readily apparent as he named off the peaks and glaciers we were able to see at 10000 ft. He would navigate and show us beautiful alpine lakes. He knew where the smooth air was and strove to keep us in a nice mostly smooth flight. A little turbulence, but that added to the experience. The final fly by Lake Invermere was very picturesque as well. Unforgettable!

Spectacular! — We had an amazing experience, in part due to the scenic mountains and in part due to our pilot. We had such a friendly fun and informative ride.

Spectacular Tour of the Purcells — Surprise birthday gift that worked out splendidly.. Fall weather was terrific ( scattered cloud among the sunny slopes ) Took off at noon for our hour tour that covered the beautiful Columbia valley and the towns of Radium, Invermere, Panorama and the Bugaboos area. What a terrific way to spend an hour flying over this picturesque landscape of golden tamarack and all the fall colors. Pilot was VERY knowledgeable and provided an in-depth dialogue of all that was below and beside the airplane . Columbia Valley is quite different from the air and although we have been on the highways in and around the area for over 20 years, this was a real birds eye view of the things that you don't get to see from the highway. Heartily recommend the trip for all to see this beautiful area.

Amazing experience. Amazing pilot. Unbelievable value. — We went on the glacier tour (husband and I) on July 30th 2016 and it was unbelievable. Great service, excellent pilot who was very knowledgeable and put us at ease right away. (He looks young but was extremely experienced and sharp as a tac, if you can get him for your tour: lucky you!!). The views were stunning and we will definitely do it again!!! If you are looking for a breath taking experience while in Colombia valley, make time for this! So worth it!

Spectacular and Amazing! Not a review... a tribute to this small company — We came from South Florida to "beat the heat" at end of July. We are avid hikers and thought we would love to see the mountain tops, valleys, and glaciers via a small plane. We have both flown in small planes before, but I had not flown in a plane quite this small! With a tiny bit of apprehension I signed us up for the 1 hr tour. The process could not have been easier. The morning skies were clear. No words can convey the natural beauty we experienced. Our pilot Shane, made us most comfortable and gave a informative narrative of the area. Normally we are both chatty, but were struck silent most of our 1 hour tour. Awe, beauty & majestic panoramas will do that to you! I felt like a bee whizzing so close to the peaks and clearly saw climbers ascending their mountain top. The glacial lakes and tarns so close together yet vividly different in hues could only be seen by flight. I took wonderful photos with my phone my husband many more with his camera. We were delighted to find out we could purchase a video of "our" flight at a nominal fee. We can only encourage others to do this! Go Fly with Babin Air! We met the Babins at the office upon our return and they spent time chatting with us. What a lovely couple! This flight was the highlight of our wonderful B.C Canadian vacation.

A great way to see the mountains — We thoroughly enjoyed our flight through the mountains, however, it could be tough if you struggle with turbulence. We would absolutely go again.

Awesome experience. Highly recommend — This was recommended to us and we were so happy we did the trip. It was so unique to fly over Rockies and see amazing sights from the air. We did a 45 minute flight and really enjoyed the experience. Great photos.

Amazing flight — This is a not to be missed attraction if you're in the Radium area. Tammy (our pilot) was great; she gave a great commentary on what we could see and answered any questions we had. The flight up over the Hanging Glacier was spectacular but be warned - if you've not been on board a light aircraft, it's a different experience from a 737! One of the highlights of our visit.
