I Saw Minnesota's Fall Colors By Flying A Plane And You Can Too

I flew a plane over the Twin Cities this week, and it was an AWESOME way to view the fall colors.

Inflight Pilot Training at Flying Cloud Airport in Eden Prairie invited me to do a Discovery Flight with them, and it was the coolest way to view the Twin Cities.

I'm not a trained pilot, so I flew with an instructor.

I was given the option to go sightseeing pretty much anywhere I wanted to (within federally regulated territorial guidelines, of course). So for the hour-long flight, I choose to fly over my south Minneapolis neighborhood where I got to see Lake Harriet, Bde Maka Ska, and Lake of the Isles from a birds' eye view, and then we flew just past downtown Minneapolis, and over the Northeast neighborhood. Then, we turned around and flew off into the sunset (literally) towards Lake Minnetonka before returning to the airport.

The fall colors were gorgeous from this point of view, and it's a lot easier than you'd think to get set up with a flight to experience the same thing.

Inflight is just one of the aviation companies at the airport, and you can check them out here.
