First time on helicopter and a wonderful experience.

Pilot Josh gave us a low-flying, amazing tour of Merritt Island, Cocoa Beach, Kennedy Space Center, the wildlife refuge and more. It's the coolest way to see alligators in the wildlife refuge or airboats below. Sit up front for the best view! It's a bit expensive, but absolutely worth it.

Wife and did this on our 25th anniversary. We chose the Cocoa Beach Pier to Patrick Air Force option with no loop de loops. We want to do it again with maybe a barrel roll or two thrown in.

Off the Bucket List and on the list of new things to do! Sorry I waited so long. Took the 45 minute flight over the beach, port area, Shuttle runway and back. Even flew through some rain showers to get the whole affect. What a thrill to experience a flight in an open cockpit, bi-wing plane!

I was very skeptical about going on the bi plane with my husband, I finally said okay and had a great time. I will defiantly go again on our next visit. Steven was our pilot and he went out of his way to put me at ease. A definite must do on your next visit.
