The most fun of any attraction around. Added a loop and roll over. Pilot Rick was the best! If you are in the area and don't try this, you are missing the thrill of a lifetime. My friend Ron and I were like two kids. Our wives waited at the hanger for us to return. They said our smiles said... More

I have flown in biplanes before but have not had an experience like I did yesterday. I was by myself so I was given the option of a stick if I wanted to fly the plane. I said let's go for it(bucket item). I flew the plane over the rivers going and coming with Steve giving me corrections as needed.... More

I'd like to start by saying that flying is my BIGGEST fear but my boyfriend is going away to flight school soon and wanted to help me get over this fear. The guide was super nice, patient, and helpful. We watched a short film and he took some pictures of us in front of the plane. The entire time he... More

First of all I love being in the air and upside down with the wind in your face is even better so my biplane ride with Florida Biplanes was THE BEST! OK, so Mark and I have been friends for a long time but since Steve flew me I can be unbiased :) I asked for some aero, you don't... More

What a GREAT thing to do on a Sunday! I've lived in Florida for 5 years and have never seen a view like this (and I'm a flight attendant). You're so close to the ground in some parts that you might recognize someone you know.. Next time we will do the barrel roll.
