Great experience and good pilot. Just bought another ride for a friend.Plane is current on inspections and pilot flies commercially out of Miami, so lots of experience in this cute little plane.

We were torn between going on a jet-ski tour of the beaches or taking a biplane ride. Very happy with the choice to fly. The pilot, Nathan, made the experience comfortable, informative, and fun. We were allowed to modify our route to fly over a friend's house and opted for some fun aerobatics along the way. Each person we interacted with was pleasant and professional. Photos with our phones were encouraged - no one showed any bitterness that we opted out of the video package they offer. Would recommend to all ages. If you uncomfortable with the idea of flying in an open cockpit: the feeling will pass quickly when you are in the air.

I am also having a problem getting the gift certificate I ordered for my husband’s birthday. I called but mailbox is full. I sent email asking where it’s at, received a reply had to wait till my payment cleared. It’s been almost 13 days, still no certificate. Maybe I need to tell card company to dispute this charge

We have been trying to reach ths company but voice mail is full. I am wondering if they ceased operation due to covid? We visited address listed and no indication of this business. Bummer as was on my husbands bucket list for 60th birthday. They have amazing reviews.

People were very friendly and professional. As others have said getting in the cockpit is challenging for some. Weight restrictions apply (380lbs). We flew at about 800 feet and saw manatees and eagle rays. Spectacular views and much enjoy the silky smooth ride. Tax and tip not included but money well spent

I received a gift certificate from my wife for a biplane ride for my birthday. This was a great idea since I have my pilots license and have never been in a biplane. I told Nathon my pilot, that I also had a pilots license and he let me get some stick time flying the plane. It was fantastic and gives a whole new perspective of the beauty of the the gulf coast of Sarasota. We flew along the coast to Seista Key and back along Longboat Key. Overall it was a great flight, I want to thank my wife for a wonderful experience.

My daughter and I wanted to try something different on a visit to Sarasota recently. We found this little adventure on TripAdvisor and decided to try it. We were both able to fly together at the same time in the front seat of this open cockpit biplane, while the pilot was in the second seat. He explained what we were seeing through the use of headsets.

The Sarasota weather was beautiful, and we had a great time flying over the Sarasota area, particularly along the coast and marina areas. We were flying at about 1,000 feet, so everything was easy to see. Highly recommended!

Absolutely amazing way to see the Gulf islands...my 4 yr old granddaughter & I took a 30 minute flight over Siesta Key, Sarasota and Longboat Key.....Nathan, our pilot was very accommodating, putting my granddaughter completely as ease with his calming personality, he also showed us points of interest and even pointed out wildlife, manatees.
Flight was right at 1000 ft......What an incredible way to see the beauty of the area......breathtaking. Our daughter and her husband enjoyed a 15 minute flight, as well. We would recommend this to anyone, as an alternate way to see the Gulf Coast of Florida.

My wife surprised me with a 40-minute flight in an open cockpit biplane, over the beautiful coastline of Sarasota for my 69th birthday. After being strapped in safely (including our Snoopy helmets with headphones and mic), we taxied out to our runway and had a tower hold to allow an arriving Delta flight to land. Wow, I have flown Delta many times; however, never had an up close and personal experience to see a commercial jet land right in front of our runway. Next a smooth taxi and take off up and over the Intercostal Waterway to Lido beach heading South. Nathan, our very knowledgeable and experienced pilot, took us along the coast to see manatees, boats, and lots of beach goers. What an amazing experience….highly recommended. Looking forward to my next surprise (hopefully, another biplane experience)
