This is a truly incredible experience. To step into history and board the biplane was a thrill in itself. To then take it up to near 1500 feet in the air was mind blowing. Our pilot Steve was a fantastic guide and we look forward to coming back and trying aerials. My wife and I highly recommend this for anyone... More

Made a reservation with Florida Air Tours for the Sunset flight on my anniversary and it was amazing! If your looking for something really different then the ordinary tourist think and an excellent flight in a real WWII trainer this is it! The Mrs. was surprised and had a really remarkable time. Thanks Mark!

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
