Next, you'll cruise toward Downtown Tampa, where you will enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the skyscrapers, landmarks in the Channel District such as the Tampa Bay Times Forum, the Florida Aquarium, and the University of Tampa.

From here, you'll float over Hillsborough and Tampa Bay as you pass by Tampa Electric's Big Bend Power Station. The Power Station is located on Big Bend Road on nearly 1,500 acres in southeastern Hillsborough County, close to Apollo Beach.

Then, you'll soar over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge on the way to Fort De Soto. The largest park within the Pinellas County Park System, Fort De Soto park consists of 1,136 acres of five interconnected islands or keys. The natural beauty of this area is truly majestic.

On your way back to the airport, you'll cross over Saint Petersburg and follow a course that takes you over Gandy Bridge and Hyde Park.
