This was the highlight of my 10 year old grandson's summer vacation. We loved it. Our pilot was Larry, a really nice guy. My grandson had never even been on a plane so this was very special. We will go back next year and take a longer flight. Don't pass up this wonderful opportunity to view the Outer Banks from... More

We had a great time at OBX biplanes! The staff was very friendly and attentive. Larry is a great pilot with many years of experience and we had a blast flying over the coast in their WWII era biplane. Feeling the wind on your face while you cruise over the birthplace of aviation... it just doesn't get any better than... More

He has always had an affinity for flying. Katie (one of the daughters) and my father flew with Scott and had the time of their lives. I... More

Had a blast, especially the aerobatics. If you like roller coasters then be sure to add the optional wingovers and loops! Thanks again!!

This is by far one of the coolest things my husband & I have done. Wish we could have done a longer tour. Didn't get to see anything in the water though...including the shipwreck we were suppose to see but it was a beautiful day!!!!!

Great ride and a memorial experience. Great pilot and ground crew. Open cockpit biplane makes an exhilarating experience.

Have been a yearly visitor to OBX, but have never experienced it like we did on the bi-plane. My husband and I saw this wonderful area like never before. Scott, our pilot, gave us information, in-flight, about what we were observing. Also, the staff was wonderful. Thanks for letting me borrow the hair-tie! Although we will never forget it, I'm...

Took my sweetie up for a ride for his birthday, he always has a need for speed and was excited about the bi plane. Staff was phenomenal and very friendly, even lending me a hair tie to secure my long hair as I put on the helmet! Getting in and out of the cockpit is a tight squeeze, be prepared!... More
