“Wonderful Adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

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 pilot was friendly and pointed out lots of landmarks and then we were back on terra firma, with big smiles on our faces. This is a fairly expensive adventure, so pick a nice day with good visibility and go have fun. There are different options to choose, ranging from $200 (for 2 people) up to $569. Extra if you want the pilot to do stunts. So it is pricey, but it was something we won't forget!

“Wow, what a thrill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2011

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 pilot explained eveything as we prepared for the takeoff on a grass runway. As we flew he pointed out the beautiful points of interest on the island, which included many homes which are owned by celebrities. There are so many beautiful areas on Chappaquidick that you would not have the opportunity to see unless you fly over it. It was lovely to see. But Classic Aviators also offers several other areas to fly and if you go onto their website you can choose the one which would suit your wants. Would we do it again? Oh my gosh, yes we would. It was such a thrill and an unbelievable experience. We recommend this to everyone as it is such a wonderful thing to do. They offer "thrill stunts" which we did not partake off THIS time, but might try a roll of the plane next time we go. Yes, we would do it again. Hope you all try this as it is a thrill and leads to a great conversation.
