"Where are you taking me?" When my wife saw the bi-plane, she was excited. When the ride was over, she said, ":My jaw is sore from smiling for so long."

Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Safety was first. Flight was great with fly-by of Cocoa beach and surrounding areas. Pilot narrated the entire flight and made it that much more meaningful.

We purchased the Sunset "See-It-All" Tour of Space Coast and also upgraded to include the aerobatic maneuvers as well. The weather was perfect for our flight and the sunset was spectacular! The aerobatic maneuvers were performed out over the Atlantic Ocean and far better than any roller coaster I have ever experienced. Our pilot was friendly and very knowledgable. I... More

I bought a bi-plane ride for my son to take the "classic tour" with his grandpa. My son is a big aviation/world war 2 buff and a ride in this WW2 trainer plane was perfect. He was very nervous about flying in such a small, open plane but the pilot was very nice and patient with him and managed to... More

We are the only tour company that offers flights in an authentic WWII biplane (we have 2!), and we take great pride in offering that experience. Thank you for... More

We booked this after our parasailing was canceled due to high winds. Really awesome time and my son said it was his favorite part of our week vacation that included the Nascar race at Daytona and a trip to Kennedy Space Center.

My husband surprised me with a helicopter ride for our anniversary and I have to say that when I first saw the helicopter I thought it was small but it was pretty compact. The driver was very patient, took his time to go over safety features and was very knowledgeable of the area. Overall it was a fun time and... More

I analyzed very well the website and I was very interested when I read that they have manufactured aircraft in the years 1940 and 1941 which were used to train cadets from the US Navy to flight, and that my wife could go with...
