Traverse City is Class D restricted airspace for five miles out from the Cherry Capital Airport. Although that takes away some opportunities for drone photography, there is still plenty to see by air outside of this airspace. The Grand Traverse Bay shorelines have a ton of features making for cool aerial images, and the bays themselves have crystal clear water that looks great from above. Nearby Elk Rapids features a nice inlet connecting to Elk Lake. Torch Lake starts just a few miles northeast of Traverse City, and has some of the clearest and bluest water of any inland lake anywhere.

The images in the Traverse City Area Aerial Images gallery are available for sale as prints or as digital downloads, with all kinds of finishing and licensing options. Just click on an image you like and click the green "Buy" button for more information.
