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!

Our pilot, Mark, couldn't have been more friendly, professional during our 15 minute flight over the cruise ships, Cape Canavea, CocaBeach and the 1,000 islands! We saw dolphins and manatees swimming beneath us from 500 feet in the air. Smooth flight!

Pilot Dan gave us a warm, cheery welcome and guided us through pre-flight and aerobatic briefings. Once onboard and after a smooth take-off we flew over to the St John's and took in the amazing landscape and wildlife from 600 feet.

The staff at Florida Air Tours was exceptional. They were extremely courteous and accommodating. They made the experience very memorable for the kids. The pilot was very knowledgeable about his planes and polite. Definitely an experience worth the money. Take the evening tours. The sunset was amazing.

My husband surprised me with a biplane tour over Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral and the cruise ships at Port Canaveral for my birthday.

Wow Brett! From being nervous to wanting to do aerobatics - that is great! People expect the ride to like a roller coaster, but it is amazingly graceful. We are so glad you enjoyed yourself and look forward to seeing you in the future! More
