Bought a ride for my brother's 21st birthday and we absolutely loved it! The staff was great and the pilot was professional and fun. I was nervous about the aerobatics but ended up loving it and feeling totally safe and comfortable. The staff, the experience and the history of the plane all make it completely worth the investment.

We have an adult special needs son and the biplane ride was his gift. From the time we arrived till the time we left we were treated graciously, like family. The flight was amazing. Capt. Rick was personable, very competent and gave us a great experience. Allie was fun and gracious. Safe, exciting, all we hoped for. Don Bray

We arrived early so had to wait for a few minutes for them to come to the office, but from then on we were taken care of. From the safety video to the actual flight, I felt that the crew was knowledgeable. Our pilot John Black was awesome and was super sweet. He gave me the second best landing EVER!... More

My sons took the tour with the biplane so they could enjoy the open air cockpit. They said it was more exciting than any amusement park. They had options to do loops or more daring stunts but they were thrilled without doing them. We felt welcomed right away and our pilot Mark was awesome and professional.

During recent Chamber event, FL Air Tours was offering mini-tours of the area. Never one to pass up on an adventure, I gladly said "YOLO/You Only Live Once" and enjoyed a magestic sunset, beautiful aerial view of the county I've called home for 24 years and an overall safe, wonderful, exhilirating experience! Thank you -- it was so much fun!
