I thought for sure I'd be nervous flying in an open air biplane. That certainly wasn't the case! Steve and the staff put me right at ease and the biplane ride over the beach was absolutely amazing! I was so relaxed and the ride was smooth and very enjoyable! I highly recommend the biplane flight! The scenery was stunning! I... More

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

My second ride in Florida Air Tours' Waco Biplane in two years. It is an absolutely awesome experience. And what a variety of experiences: flying along the ocean front at Cocoa Beach, then over the cruise ships in Port Canaveral, up to the Kennedy Space Center and a pass right down NASA's shuttle landing runway, and the beautiful and diverse...

Get on this ride as soon as you can , make sure you go down the Shuttle Run way and do some aerobatics by the Cocoa beach pier. Best bang for your buck in the area. Robert Williams

This has been on our "bucket list" for a while now. Every time we see the plane fly over while sitting on the beach, we say.... "We gotta do this"! Well, we finally did....on Valentine's day. It was a cool and clear day. Simply beautiful! I had no idea that the pilot was to sit behind us until the day... More

I was terrified. Once I got on, I was thinking "holy crap,what have I done?!?" But once I was in the air, it was amazing. There was the Banana river, Ron Jon's surf shop, Cocoa beach spread out below us.... It was really great. -Coco, 11

My son (6) and I called Florida Air Tours this afternoon. 30 minutes later Marc took us with his heli from Port Canaveral on a 20 minute flight up to Kennedy Space Center. What a ride! We even flew a low approach to the landing strip on Merritt Island where the last Space Shutte touched down. What a memorable trip.... More

This flight was a Christmas gift and we were not disappointed. It was a lot of fun. We enjoyed beautiful weather, an adorable airplane (Waco UPF-7) and a very good pilot, Steve, who was professional and friendly. I love open cockpit flying, and this was my first such tour of Merritt Island, Cocoa Beach and Port Canaveral. Try it and... More

We took the extended helicopter tour, my wife has just turned 60 and scared of heights but she thought this was the best thing we had done in four vacations to Florida. The pilot Mark was just great and very informative and polite, what a fantastic time, we will be doing this again, hope to see you all at Florida... More

I recently took the Port and Beach Helicopter Tour from Port Canaveral with my 87 year old grandmother and my 4 year old son. Mark, our pilot, was excellent and gave great commentary as we flew over the Port and Cocoa Beach. I highly recommend Florida Air Tours. Joe
