While there are plenty of terrestrial ways to enjoy Central Oregon, sometimes leaving the ground is the best way to understand it, whether that means getting a (literally) bird's eye view of the High Dessert expanse, or just being thankful to having both feet planted firmly back on it. Summertime in Central Oregon offers plenty of clear sky, 360 degree, I-can-see-for-miles-and-miles opportunities to check out the land by air:

Airplane and Helicopter Tours

The Wright Brothers couldn't have dreamed of anything better: Tours through Leading Edge Aviation last 25-60 minutes, and there are multiple options for the flight plan routes, aircraft and number of passengers. The cheapest option starts at $59.
