Please schedule your tour on our website or by calling 321-392-4125 or 888-FOR-RIDE as far in advance as possible to allow for the best selection of times. We do not schedule tours via email correspondence. We fly 7 days a week, year round. Weekend reservations are often tightly booked, so you should try to schedule as early as possible. While we do take “walk-ups” when availability permits, we do ask that you make an appointment.
Please plan to arrive at least 15-minutes prior to your tour reservation. (25-30 minutes prior for sunset flights and biplane tours with Aerobatics Upgrades) This will allow time for a preflight safety briefing and for you to get settled into the aircraft. You should allow an additional 15-minutes after your tour for deplaning and checkout.
You pay after your tour(s) are complete. (It’s always easier to pay for something when you have a big smile on your face!) We accept cash or credit cards. (Visa, Mastercard or Discover; sorry, we do not accept American Express)
When we take your card number to hold a reservation, we don’t put a charge on your card and it’s information is encrypted (for security purposes). Therefore, you will need to present your credit card at the time of checkout.

Our video package consists of having your flight video professionally edited and posted online, as well as having a hard-copy DVD mailed to your home. The video package is a great value and a fun way to relive your flight experience! The video package is optional and is available at a very reasonable price.

There are a number of reasons we may cancel your flight due to weather (wind, low clouds, rain, etc.). Simply put, we will not take you up on a day where you will not be thrilled with your flight. Your pilot has the authority to cancel, change, or shorten a flight due to weather or other variables. If we cancel your flight due to inclement weather we will gladly reschedule your flight for the next best time and date. NOTE: Tours that are cancelled or rescheduled by us due to weather do not incur any cancellation charges.
If you would like to change your flight to a longer tour, we ask that you give us as much notice as possible. Our tours are often booked back-to-back and it may be difficult for us to accommodate last-minute changes. We will do our best to accommodate you if at all possible.
Please call us right away if you need to reschedule or cancel your tour reservation. As a small business, it’s important that we be able to rebook that time for another customer. We require at least 24-hours notice for this.
There is no charge for reservations canceled at least 24 hours in advance. However, once booked, any reservation canceled with less than 24 hours of the scheduled ride will be charged a $50 cancellation fee per flight. Reservations canceled on the same day of the scheduled flight may be charged the full amount of the tour(s) – this includes no-shows and Gift Certificate redemptions. NOTE: Tours that are cancelled or rescheduled by us due to weather do not incur any cancellation charges.
It is very safe! The most hazardous part of this adventure is the drive to the airport. Our aircraft are cared for on a daily basis and receive a full inspection by our full-time maintenance staff every 100 hours of flying. All our pilots are FAA certified commercial pilots, with most holding Airline Transport Pilot ratings. All our pilots and mechanics participate in a rigorous FAA/DOT drug test program.
We typically fly from 9am to sunset, however we don’t always staff our airport office during non-flying periods. Please call us at 321-392-4125 before coming out to the airport so we may provide you with the best possible service.
While not required (or expected), most of our pilots are very appreciative of a tip, if you feel they earned it.
