That was one of the most fun things I ever did. It was a perfect day too. It is a bit scary at the beginning, but really enjoyable the entire time. It offers spectacular views over the city.

Amazing Panoramic vistas of Gatineau Park and a close-up look at Champlain Lookout are the hallmarks of this tour today . We Saw the secluded lakes and river systems that have made this park world famous. Also we enjoyed aerial views of the farmlands of western Quebec and eastern Ontario. The Parliament Hill Tour was included on the return leg.... More

Went with my adult son on the biplane, taking a trip over the Gatineau River area and central Ottawa. We really enjoyed it! We were fitted with helmets and ear protection, safely loaded into the front seats and then a quick take-off. We flew at around 1000 ft above ground, so had a terrific view of the scenery - including... More

Took the Ottawa River Tour and was absolutely worth it. They suit you up with headgear that will reduce the noise when flying. Two people per trip [and the pilot]. For the most part it is a pleasant, steady and safe ride. The pilot does perform 2 to 3 sharp turns midway through the flight for you to get a... More

Friends from out-of-town visited Ottawa and we went to the Aviation Museum and we went on a Bi Plane. It is an experience that you do not want to miss. Check out their website. In addition, the Aviation Museum is very interesting and child friendly. One plane that stood out in my tour was a German plane that had been... More

Decided to take a flight in this Waco UPF-7 for my birthday; it was a great experience from start to finish. We were welcomed, fitted with cap (we wore our own sunglasses which were fine) and hearing protection, and off we went. The takeoff is startlingly short, and the plane just lifts into the sky. The views are great! Greg... More

My son and I took this tour of the Gatineau hills and downtown Ottawa for out birthdays...It was well worth the price and the experience is something we will not forget.

How can you not go up in a genuine bi-plane? We both loved it. A genuine shared family moment. Smooth take-off and landing with the best views, as you'd imagine.

I received the flight as a gift - 30 minute Eco Tour. We have a cottage in the area and the pilot was gracious enough to slightly break the pattern and fly over our place. It was awesome. A view of "our" lake like we have never seen it before. On the way home, a few maneuvers to show off... More
