Been here several times over the years, was told it was now only open on weekends and for special events. It's scaled down a lot, doesn't have the great restaurant it used to have, and not as many restoration tours. But still a great deal...More

A lot of great looking planes. Did the tour and learned a lot about the plane from way back to the first world war. Hope to come back soon. Wayne from Maine.

First time visitor. Great guided tour. Learning a lot and having the opportunity of flying around Polk City. Better than expected.

Disappointed that only a small hanger is now open. When we visited a few years ago it was a must for aircraft enthusiasts but no longer, a waste of fuel travelling there

Kermit Weeks, founder of “Fantasy of Flight” (FOF), has such a hard job. He must decide which of these beautifully restored aircraft to fly on any particular day. My sarcasm aside, here’s an excerpt of his bio: “For Fantasy of Flight founder Kermit Weeks, the...More
