I plan every trip I ever take with my husband, down to the very last detail. I thought I had our whole Key West trip mapped out and then I read about the Conch Republic Air Force. My initial reaction was to book the bi-plane ride and surprise my husband with it once we arrived but I was too excited... More

I had never ridden in a bi-plane before but my husband talked me into it. So glad he did. Well worth the price, we took a sunset ride and got the most beautiful views of the reef, sunset, downtown Key West, and other keys. Pilot Lou was excellent and I couldn't get over how smooth and comfortable the ride was.... More

What a fantastic experience! We went out early with Russ as our pilot and saw the entire island by air. Saw some dolphins, shipwrecks and boats, including a cruise ship from the air. The open cockpit experience was really awesome. What a ride! From take off to landing, it was just cool. My husband and I are still talking about... More

Don't miss. Friendly, family atmosphere. Great visual of island and outlying areas. Take the 30 to 35 minute tour. Remember to tip the pilot.

I had never been in a biplane before and this was exciting! The pilot, Russ, was very competent and informative as we passed over the water, reefs and islands. We saw the light house, reefs, sea turtles, dolphins, sharks, a cruise ship, a house boat and of course all of Key West downtown area. It was a really fun time!

Taking a ride in a vintage WACO open cockpit biplane is both a technology time travel and a great way to see Key West from the air. (I also recommend the jet ski tour around the island that leaves from the The Waldorf's Reach Resort.) Friendly folks, great up close experience with a historic aircraft yes the views are great....

Brilliant exciting way to see the island. A super family runs this business and they are so helpful. The open cockpit bi plane seats two passengers up front and it is an exhilarating experience. My wife and I loved every minute of it. Great value for money. Terrific fun!

Scheduled a short flight with my son on our last day so we could see the keys from above. My son is still grinning ear to ear. Great experience. It's a small operation but great people managing it. Worth the cost in my book! FYI- there is only 1 biplane ride outfit in key west! The other "key west biplane... More

A lot of people wrote about how the pilot was not very personable. I agree with those reviews. So, if you do not know a lot about KW, or you want a little more fun, well this really is not for you. However, if you like to just be in your own space and like to take pictures, this is... More
