Scenic/Introductory Flights

All Scenic Rides/Introductory Flights prices are based off of one half hour intervals, however we can make the ride longer if you wish and your rate will depend precisely on how much time you are in the air. Each Aircraft has different rates than the others, for both the ride it self and for the additional passengers.

We call these Flights taken over beautiful Hannibal, MO by two different names:

  1. The flight can be called a Scenic Flight; We use this term because the passenger(s) are interested only in the ride where they get to see the view of beautiful Hannibal, Mo from the specified aircraft. This Flight is focused on what the passenger(s) want to see, where they want to go and how what rout they want to take to get there. It is more about the view outside then it is about the aircraft itself.
  2. They are also called Introductory Flights; We use this term because the passenger is wanting to peruse a position in the world of Aviation and may want to get their Pilots License. This is the first flight of all of our Flight Training courses, where we introduce the aircraft and it’s instruments to the soon to be Flight Student. This flight will have some instruction involved and is focused more on the aircraft and how to fly it than it is on the view outside the windshield.


These Flights costs the same for each of the different titles they have, the only reason for differentiating them is for the Pilot or Instructor (they like to know what they are doing beforehand) It gives them an opportunity to prepare accordingly.

Introducing our Scenic/Introductory Flight Planes!

Cessna 172

Cessna 172

Our Cessna 172 is the most commonly used aircraft for our Scenic Flights here at Barron Aviation Private Flight Services. This aircraft has recently been reupholstered, the inside is comfy and cozy perfect for a Flight over beautiful Hannibal, MO. It holds three passengers plus the Pilot comfortably, and can travel up to a 25 mile radius around the Hannibal Regional Airport.

This is an $80.00 per half hour ride for one passenger
Each additional passenger is a $25.00 one time charge

This aircraft is not only used for Scenic or Introductory Flights, this aircraft is for rent and for flight instruction here at Barron Aviation Private Flight Services as well.

Cessna 170

Cessna 170

The Cessna 170 is a Tail Wheel Aircraft, the back seats sit a little lower then they do in the Cessna 172 so smaller passengers do have a little harder time seeing out the back. Flying a Tail Wheel aircraft is becoming a lost art in the world of Aviation, there are not many Pilots out there to fly them anymore. However we don't want to see them disappear, so we do our best to keep Pilots in our Tail Wheel Airplane. This aircraft seats three passengers and the pilot comfortably and can go up to a 25 mile radius around the Hannibal Regional Airport.

A half hour Flight in the Cessna 170 is $100.00 for one passenger
There is a one time only charge of $35.00 per person

This aircraft is not only used for Scenic or Introductory Flights, this aircraft is for rent and for flight instruction here at Barron Aviation Private Flight Services as well.

Cessna 195

The Cessna 195 is also a Tail Wheel Aircraft this one however is a Vintage Tail Wheel Aircraft. Fully Restored by Barron Aviation in Perry, MO this aircraft is just simply beautiful. Seats three passengers and the pilot comfortably, this airplanes cabin is more roomy than the other two on our Scenic Ride's list and can go up to a 25 mile radius around the Hannibal Regional Airport.
We just love this aircraft!

A half hour flight in this aircraft is $150.00 for one passenger and each additional passenger is a one time charge of $25.00
