“Small local airstrip in Marstons Mills, Cape Cod”
Review of Cape Cod Airfield

Cape Cod Airfield
Attraction details
Reviewed 20 January 2012

This airstrip has a place to park your cars at a safe distance and see Bi-planes and sometimes a Blimp land and take off. Great for gawking with little children and photo buffs . Spectacular foliage in the fall

I took a biplane ride at the airfield a year ago and just did it again. I've posted about it in the forums before, but after the last ride, I wanted to make a formal review of it.

The airfield is really historic, it dates back to the early 1900's and it's pretty too; the fields are filled with daisy's (in season). They have 3 different biplane rides (time, cost) and they are fantastic. They run from $100. to $200 (or you can take a custom ride, priced accordingly).

The biplane is bright red and 2 passengers can go at once. You have to climb into the plane (so it could be difficult if you had limited mobility) and they strap you in. It's an open cockpit but not windy at all because there is a wind screen and its warm as you sit right behind the engine. It is noisy however; but once you put on the canvas hat with headphones and mic its a lot quieter. You can talk to the pilot who sits in his own cockpit behind you.

Taxi down the grass strip runway and you're off! I went over Sandy Neck, the Sagamore bridge, and my house (I live near the airfield). It was a nice steady ride, not windy, bumpy, or scary in any way. The pilot is a former commercial airline pilot and I felt like I was in great hands.

There is also a picnic table there if you like to watch the planes instead of fly in them and there are a lot of old planes to look at. A sky diving business also operates there if you'd like to try that (Sky Dive Cape Cod) and the airfield is part of 2500 acres of hiking trails. A great way to spend the day!

I can't believe I've lived near this airport for 11 years and it took me this long to go down and get a ride. I plan on taking one every single year from here on out!
