This was an amazing experience and what a unique opportunity! To fly in a vintage open cockpit biplane doing loops, rolls and wing-overs leaves an indescribable feeling, and to experience this over beautiful Cocoa Beach and the ocean was so thrilling! The pilot, Jim Gramke is possibly the greatest pilot to have ever flown (I may be a little biased,... More

We took the Classic Biplane tour. It was the most exhilarating thing I have ever done. The pilot was very friendly. The ride was so smooth. Best experience ever. Didn't want to get off. Views were spectacular. Awesome!!!!

If you do nothing else do this! Everyone was helpful and shifted the flight as we arrived early. I just did the standard experience and it was awesome. If you have the nerve do the aerobatics as the buzz must be intense. I have the video of the flight you can buy at a reasonable price and can revisit this... More

This was a fantastic attraction well worth the money. The owner Mark was very helpful and the other pilot Steve who took me up was great and informative. He also allowed me to steer the plane. Great opportunity for aerial photos too. Your in the front of an authentic WWII trainer plane.

There's no words to really describe what it was like to fly over the area you just surfed. To be able to do loops and barrel rolls in such a historic aircraft with an awesome pilot (Jim)...if you like smiling uncontrollably then do it.

While the plan was a bike ride; I made a spur of the moment decision while driving into the Port and seeing the Helicopter. The time is nearing that my Son makes his big move to New Zealand. You should have seen the look on his face when I said "forget the bike ride lets get in the helicopter". Andrew... More

The experience at Florida Air Tours was amazing! From start to finish we enjoyed every minute of the experience. Adding the aerobatics is an absolute must! The Captain was friendly and knowledgeable and made sure that we were having a great time. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone looking for a little extra adventure!
