Scenic Flights by Helms Aero Service

On 29 June 2008 following our failed attempt at the Santanoni Range of the ADK High Peaks, we consoled ourselves by jumping onto Rt. 30 and grabbing a meal at the Adirondack Hotel on Long Lake. It was just what the doctor ordered.

Afterwards Jess, Colleen, James, Adam, and I investigated the small office across the road for Helms Aero Service. The thought of being in a tight, enclosed cockpit with 4 others plus a pilot was not appealing to me. I succumbed to peer pressure, though. The flight we took over Long Lake turned into one of my best Adirondack memories!

That'd be convenient! Let's get him interested in the Adirondacks so that we'll be in line for the "family discount"

Thanks for the complements and pleased to meet you!

I have to confess, we are a bit behind on keeping updated with trip reports and photos / videos, but we'll get there.

I am so glad we did that Helms flight. It was a spur-of-the-moment jewel.
