My husband received the OBX plane ride as a birthday present from our children. He had always wanted to ride in a bi-plane. I was reluctant to go at first, but am so glad that I did. It was an awesome experience. It was a beautiful October day and the views from the plane were spectacular. Larry and Stephanie are... More

This couple is so friendly and accommodating. We had to reschedule several times and they were so gracious. The flight was amazing and we both see the obx in a totally different way! Worth every penny !

Debbie had never flown before and Steph and Larry had her at ease before and during the flight. The views were out of this world. We arrived early and they took us right away, not a word about us being early. Didn't try to pressure us to upgrade or buy anything...just good down home people that really seemed to enjoy... More

Wonderful experience from start to finish. From the time I first contacted them I could tell they love their customers. It's no wonder their customers love them also. The aerobatics ride was incredible fun. Larry's an amazing pilot and tour guide from the air. Steph's videos are more than worth price. What a great company bringing the joy of flight... More

It was an incredible experience! The staff were friendly, accommodating, professional and most of all made me feel relaxed and comfortable. I had done the aerobatic flight, which was something I had dreamed about, and it by far exceeded my expectations. The overall experience was complemented by the staff, who were great. This is something I will do every year... More

My 75 year old mom wanted me to go on a biplane. I had no idea what it was, so I wore a dress and my dangly earrings. I was NOT happy about going on the plane, but it turned out to be a fantastic experience!!! Stephanie was wonderful, held my earrings and shoes! :o) Larry was such a gentleman!... More

What a wonderful time my children and grandchildren had. Steph and Larry took time to make the girls feel special and comfortable. They took care of Grammy on the ground. The girls waved to the plane for the rest of the week. thanks again. Next is the helicopter.
