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

My boyfriend treated me to the biplane air tour for my 26th birthday. The pilot was very friendly and put me at ease because I was extremely nervous about it. It was an amazing experience and one I would never forget!

Forget the other attractions in Orlando! You haven't experienced an adventure like Florida Biplanes! Nothing compares to riding over the lakes of Orlando & Winter Park like an open cockpit biplane from WW2 era!!! Great piloting, great weather, zero motion sickness (for me, that is HUGE!!). Trust me. It is a trip you will never forget! Thanks Florida Biplanes!

I got this as a present and went in the spring. The pilot was great and friendly, the plane was fitting since I'm a Navy vet, and the ride was great! It's neat to see the old planes and all of the working parts. The pilot controls everything from his cockpit behind you but you can see all of the... More

This was my first time in a biplane and it was AWESOME. My friend wanted to do the acrobatic option, but because this was my first time, we decided to just do the Cocoa Beach/Port Canaveral option. Pilot Steve was amazing! He made the trip fun for both of us and even did a wing dip specifically for my friend,... More
