We took the Classic Biplane tour. It was the most exhilarating thing I have ever done. The pilot was very friendly. The ride was so smooth. Best experience ever. Didn't want to get off. Views were spectacular. Awesome!!!!

If you do nothing else do this! Everyone was helpful and shifted the flight as we arrived early. I just did the standard experience and it was awesome. If you have the nerve do the aerobatics as the buzz must be intense. I have the video of the flight you can buy at a reasonable price and can revisit this... More

This was a fantastic attraction well worth the money. The owner Mark was very helpful and the other pilot Steve who took me up was great and informative. He also allowed me to steer the plane. Great opportunity for aerial photos too. Your in the front of an authentic WWII trainer plane.

There's no words to really describe what it was like to fly over the area you just surfed. To be able to do loops and barrel rolls in such a historic aircraft with an awesome pilot (Jim)...if you like smiling uncontrollably then do it.

While the plan was a bike ride; I made a spur of the moment decision while driving into the Port and seeing the Helicopter. The time is nearing that my Son makes his big move to New Zealand. You should have seen the look on his face when I said "forget the bike ride lets get in the helicopter". Andrew... More

The experience at Florida Air Tours was amazing! From start to finish we enjoyed every minute of the experience. Adding the aerobatics is an absolute must! The Captain was friendly and knowledgeable and made sure that we were having a great time. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone looking for a little extra adventure!

If you have any interest in a tour of the Space Coast from an aircraft, then this is the tour. Steve was extremely professional, explaining every small detail without acting like he had been doing it dozens of times a week. The price is a little expensive but everyone needs to understand how expensive it is to maintain historic aircraft... More

We had seen the bi-plane flying up and down Cocoa Beach during previous stays, and decided that this time we were going to give it a go. We booked via the website which was very easy to do. There was excellent communication from the company. The day we had planned to fly turned out to be a bit cloudy and... More

This was an exciting experience in a 75 year old plane! It was in great shape, very gentle flight which was surprising as one would think it would be a bit rougher than today's planes, but not so. Next flight I will upgrade for the loops!
