One of the two major highlights of our ten day's trip to New England (the other one was a piano performance at the Newport Music Festival). Phil - a very experienced pilot and great fun - made the day. It was a fantastic feeling to cross the lake landscape in such a great looking and well maintained, open air plane.... More

It was totally worth paying the extra money for a 40min ride! If you are brave, ask for the more "thrilling" tour! A few... More

This was a great experience, the pilot was highly knowledgeable and truly enjoyed what he did, fantastic tour of the lakes region from an open cockpit, immaculately restored and kept biplane. We asked that he fly over our home and he was happy to oblige us, doing a wing stand over our roof for several turns. I would recommend this... More
