Your CHILD'S Flight With Barrier Island Aviation

In order to redeem your child's flight for successfully completing Wright Flight, you must schedule your flight with Barrier Island Aviation by calling (252) 473-4247.  Barrier Island Aviation schedules our students the first and third Saturdays of every month.  You may contact them to schedule a flight as late as the evening before the Saturday you wish to fly.  Please be aware that even once you have scheduled your flight, weather conditions may require you to reschedule it for a future date as each pilot, in the interest of safety, will ultimately make the decision on whether or not to fly on any particular day.

Check Local Weather Forecast

Wright Flight graduates do not pay any fees to redeem their flight with Barrier Island Aviation as these costs are paid for by Wright Flight of North Carolina.  However, parents wishing to fly with their child will be required to pay $20 per person to Barrier Island Aviation.  In addition, please keep in mind that tips to the pilot are greatly appreciated to further offset the costs of aviation fuel and aircraft maintenance. 

Parents are asked to have their child wear their Wright Flight shirt and to take photographs of their children with the plane and pilot during their experience.  Parents are encouraged to share these photographs with us so that we can post them on this website and our Facebook page.  Photographs may be e-mailed to: .

Any parents who wish to have a guest fly with their children to film the event may contact Sergeant John Towler of the Kill Devil Hills Police Department.  Sergeant Towler has expressed an interest in doing this for any who may be interested.  He may be contacted by e-mail at: .
