We highly recommend this exhilarating biplane ride. It's thrilling, and offers a wondrous view of the island. The open cockpit flight is a favorite of family and friends visiting us in our Katama home. Combine your flight with a meal at the Right Fork Diner . . . perhaps eating and relaxing at the airfield after your flight . .... More

This was a FANTASTIC experience! My son and I decided to go on the thrill ride, and what an experience it was doing somersaults up in the air. We felt completely safe with our parachutes on, and the pilot could not be more professional. Yes, we were apprehensive (not as much as our family watching on terra firma), but we... More

I have taken four biplane rides and have loved them all. Especially the one around the whole island. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Recommend the biplane rides highly!

We took the most popular tour over the eastern side of the island. The experience was fantastic. You are sitting in the front cockpit ahead of the pilot. You wear a helmet, goggles, radio and are belted in. There is two way communication with the pilot. He was very informative and gave a running description of the island, celebrity houses,... More

Thanks to Mike for take us on an awesome tour of the Vineyard by air! The only thing missing was the silk scarf blowing in the breeze. Beautiful, clear day to take in the sights and Mike pointed out all the highlights of the island. It's a once in a lifetime so don't hesitate to try it!

Searching for something to do while visiting Marthas Vineyard I stumbled upon this diamond in the rough! One of the few remaining land airstrips. It was as though we had stepped back into another time era. Men working in the hangar, small town diner and acres of primal land. Alex was instrumental in setting up our reservation, prompt to respond... More

The entire adventure was fun and exciting from start to finish! We climbed into the vintage bi-plane, got buckled in, hat and goggles on, and off we went! We chose the 35-minute flight that covered most of the major towns and beaches on the Vineyard. It was a crystal clear summer day and the flight was so much fun. The... More

My husband and I were presented with a gift certificate for a bi-plane ride at Classic Aviator Tours in Edgartown/Martha's Vineyard. The gift certificate was for a flight over Chappaquidick. Can say that at first I was certainly a bit nervous about it, but as they instructed us and got us safely into the plane, my anxiety lessened. Our wonderful... More
