We always take the scenic route because sometimes the flight is so enjoyable you will want to savor the experience as long as possible. Flying the Beech Super 18 is like flying a magic train into a time when flying was more about the luxury experience and enjoying the view through huge picture windows.

My wife got me a ride in the Waco biplane.as an anniversary gift. It was amazing. The feel of the open cockpit was so cool. Mike was a great host and let me fly nearly the entire time. The plane was a dream to fly. I would recommend this to anyone who loves to fly. I would have flown all... More

It was a great experience for both of us. A beautiful aircraft with a surprisingly roomy cockpit compared to other biplanes. Mike flew just as we wished, which was reassuring for us. We both feel like that we ticked one of the boxes by taking this flight. Mike will make it as exciting or soothing as you wish. Flying over... More

The pilot, the plane, the sky - all was so perfect;) We had the trip on bi-plane and we plan to do one in future maybe with acrobatics!

Blew away my expectations; quite possibly the coolest thing I have ever done in my life. I flew a stunt plane and performed aerobatic maneuvers. The plane has controls for both passengers, and the instructor(Mike) does a good job of explaining everything. I did rolls, flips, spins, hammerheads, flying upside down and a few more things, all with Mike guiding... More

I booked the 'Aerobatic World Champion' experience which was incredible. It's definitely one of the best things I have ever done and would do it again in a heartbeat. It's nearly been a week since I did this experience and I have been telling everyone how amazing it was! I opted to fly in the Extra 300L. The experience starts... More

Whether you're an experienced pilot, an aviation enthusiast or just a dare devil I'm absolutely certain you'll have have an amazing "sky thrill". I hold an Air Transport Pilot licence and have thousands of hours flying experience and doing loops, rolls and spins over the Californian West Coast in the Citabria completely rekindled my love for flying. Mike is a... More

If you're looking for an action-packed activity that truly defines "thrill ride", this is it. The staff are very friendly and Mike is a rockstar pilot. He's big on fun and safety, too. The best part was when Mike actually let me take the controls of the Extra 300L and taught me how to do crazy stunts in it. I... More

If you think you may enjoy flying - any aspect of it - you owe it to yourself to fly with Mike (Rocket). He exudes an infectious passion for all things aviation, and passengers can't help but get wrapped up in the experience. We had 5 friends aboard Mike's beautiful Twin Beech 18 for a charter flight out to Santa... More
