sky-high-air-tours-heysmokies (00000002)Barnstorming the Smokies with Sky High Air Tours! Go ahead and add this to your bucket list now! Enjoy an incredible bird’s eye view of the Great Smoky Mountains from the front seat of a vintage 1927 Waco Biplane. Climb aboard this lovingly restored, authentic aircraft and take a nostalgic flight with modern-day barnstormer and pilot, Marc Hightower.

During the golden days of aviation, the Waco Model 10 was the pinnacle of aviation technology. It was the first general aviation aircraft to be equipped with hydraulic shock absorbers. Waco Airplanes were used for crop dusting and as mail planes.
