This was an incredible experience from start to finish. The instructor/ pilot, Dale, told me everything to expect like quick take offs so that there were no surprises. The views up and down the coast were awesome. The aircraft was more stable that I expected and it's something that everyone should experience. I highly recommend this experience!

Awesome experience with Captain Dane! We flew out of Clearwater up to Caladesi and Honeymoon Island, spotting sharks, manatees, and dolphins. Taking the controls was amazing - you really do get to fly! Definitely get the video of your flight to share. Definitely bring a jacket if you are going for an early morning flight in Fall. Thanks to Dane... More

I recently relocated to the Tampa/St. Pete area and I've always wanted seen the ultra-light planes cruising up and down the beach, so I thought I would give it a try. I am so glad that I booked the flight. I had a great view of the beaches, dolphins, a shark or two and I could really take in the... More

Try this ride before taking a boat tour. Everyone in our group spotted sea life. It is so easy (and beautiful) to scan miles of ocean and intracostal from above. The ride was smooth and it was fun to try a hand at steering the plane... really easy and very exhilarating. We circled above all the sunset cruises. Also a... More

Do this before anything else while in Florida. I have been traveling to Fl for over 30 yrs and never saw Fl like this before. Much better than parasailing and much more enjoyable. Pilot Dane is awesome and knows the area well. He gave me so much information. Great way to see nature (Dolphins, Manatee, Stingrays and Sharks).

This was one of the most impressive flights I have ever taken. The ability to look down and see rays, dolphins, and schools of fish swimming around in the Gulf of Mexico off the Clearwater beach was awsome! Dane was very friendly and very informative throughout the pre-flight and the actural flight. Taking the controls of the aircraft was very... More

Better than all the theme parks and Florida attractions. Fantastic and awesome is not sufficient to describe the experience of floating above Clearwater beach and coastline with brilliant views of sea life, beach life and city life. Dane has a very relaxing manner and instills confidence from take off to landing. This is a must for everyone's bucket.list Thoroughly recommended.... More
