Excellent plane ride. Loved the Aerobatics. The pilot took his time and explained all parts of the flight.

Had no fear with the our great pilot Steve this past weekend. We did an hour tour with full acrobatics. The winds were a slight concern for me but Steve handled the plane like the PRO he is! If you ever thought of an open cockpit plane ride this is the place. Don't hold back do the full tour. You... More

Did the 17 minute trip out of Port Canaveral and down beach to Patrick Airforce Base then over the thousand islands area and back to the Port. Shannon was out pilot and he was great, pointing out dolphin and manatee that were visible from above. We took our 17 year old son who is rarely excited and he really enjoyed... More

The view was wonderful. The pilot was friendly and informative. We got an extra treat because the Goodyear blimp was over Cocoa Beach at the time.

First off I have to say the overall experience was fun but has a lot to be desired for the price. I purchased the evening bi-plane flight and paid additional for the sunset time slot from 6pm - 7-pm. Well our flight was over by 6:08 pm meaning we were back on the ground prior to sunset. When I asked... More

Best 30 minutes of the holiday so far! Beautiful WW2 biplane. After a quick safety briefing & parachute fitting (in the unlikely chance you have to bail out, etc...) we were strapped in & taken up over Port Canaveral & on to Cocoa Beach, where our pilot, Katie, performed loop the loops and various barrel rolls. Just brilliant! Wish we'd... More
