What a terrible experience with this company. All over the aviation museum they had signs up that said “Flights today” with pricing. My son and I visited the museum and I was excited to take him on his first flight. After seeing the sign and asking the front desk about it we decided to go for it. We had just seen a plane take off so figured they may have taken customers out so patiently waited. After half and hour I called the number listed…. The phone at the kiosk which was a cell phone rang. It appeared he left his cell phone back so I once again thought he may be on a flight. I checked with the front desk and they said the pilot must be on break or on a flight. So I continued to
Wait…. And wait….Finally, an older man came by dropped papers at the kiosk and walked away. My son and I were standing at the kiosk and not acknowledged. When I called out to the man I asked if he knew about the flights he said he runs the company but that he wasn’t flying today just weekends and walked away. Then why have the signs up? They are not permanent signs. Clearly he couldn’t be bothered to put in the effort to take the board down when he isn’t flying so he leaves up to mislead customers and disappoint their kids. What a waste Of my valuable time while I’m vacation. While waiting I was also disappointed to see customer paperwork and information left out on the counter. Lazy owner apparently.

I have not ridden in this biplane, I am just making an informational comment.

The aircraft is very noisy and flies at low altitude. Those communities over which it flies despise it. It is particularly active on summer weekends and causes distress to those on the ground who feel helpless at the noise it makes, interfering with our outdoor enjoyment.

Please be aware of this when considering a booking. They should invest in a muffler or some sort of noise control.

I will contact the airport and the enterprise to discuss noise reduction measures.

I will file a complaint with the authorities, as certainly this commercial activity cannot be fully legal, as it is a clear and obvious interruption in the enjoyment of peoples' private and municipal properties.

It’s a once in a life time experience for sure, a bit expensive but totally worth it!!! The pilot was great, on time, everything was perfect!!! We took the 30 min flight.

I’ve a lot of flight experience even in open cockpits but a 1939 biplane! Just had to. My wife is scared of flying but agreed to try this. 40 minutes over Ottawa and Gatineau Park for 420 c$ between us was entirely well worth it. A memorable hi light (sorry). I’d recommend it over the helicopter or fixed wing versions. I’ve done all three. This is so stunning after looking at the old planes and wondering what it was like. We now sort of know!
The pilot and crew were excellent and I will do this again on a future Ottawa trip

Very smooth flight. Well piloted. Wonderful receptionist.
Not as long as advertised. We were in the air for only 26min though the flight was advertised for 35min. Funny to hear the receptionist confirm in a loud voice that it would be 35min. Perhaps the pilot didn't get the memo....

Treated myself to a parliament hill flyover for my birthday and was thrilled with the whole experience, the view was epic and well worth the challenge of getting in and out of the cockpit! You should try this!

The plane ride itself was wonderful. However, we paid $168 per person for a 20-25 minute ride. The ride lasted just under 15 minutes.

We did the biplane Parliament Hill tour and son, daughter-in-law and two grandsons (aged 8 and 5) did the Family Tour in the Cessna. All of us thoroughly enjoyed the adventure. The youngest was quite scared to go but since then it is all he's talked about and said he wants to do it again. As other reviewers mentioned, the flight is about 15 minutes but we felt that was long enough and the price was worth the once in a lifetime adventure.

I had emailed OBA several times prior to booking and I found them to be quite responsive, understanding (of a possible last minute cancellation due to a little boy's possible cold feet lol) and customer focused.

We went on the biplane adventure to celebrate our anniversary in August. We flew before 10:00 am, along the Ottawa river. It was a wonderful flight! We highly recommend it to anyone with a sense of adventure. I have knee issues, so it was a bit more difficult to get in and out of the plane, but I managed to do it - well worth the extra effort!

For the actual flight with Alex, the pilot, I would give 5 stars. Was truly an amazing experience. For an aviation fan like me, this was a dream come true. Unfortunately the check-in was totally ridiculous, the staff lady was disrespectful, conceited and didn't tread us like valued customers. Besides that, she didn't pick up the phone all day (I wanted to confirm the flight due to weather conditions). They don't accept Amex as well, so if you don't have multiple credit cards you are screwed.
