Take to the skies and explore Cocoa Beach from the open cockpit of a beautifully restored historic biplane on this exciting aerial sightseeing tour!
Climb aboard a historic Waco UPF-7 open-cockpit biplane and experience a one-of-a-kind sightseeing tour over the gorgeous sights around Cocoa Beach and Port Canaveral. On this 17 - 20 minute tour, you’ll experience the fun and excitement of flying into the wild blue yonder in the seat of a WWII-era airplane.
Meet up with your FAA Certified Pilot for a quick safety briefing to get started. Then hop into the front seat of the biplane, buckle up, and strap on your helmet just like a 1940s flying ace because it’s time to take off. Embrace the rush of adrenaline as the plane taxis down the runway and the wheels lift off the ground. Feel the wind on your face as you take in the incredible views of Cocoa Beach below.
Check out Port Canaveral’s shrimp boat fleet and keep your eyes peeled for a US Navy submarine at the Trident Turning Basin. Snap Instagram-worthy pics of the Cape Canaveral Lighthouse and Kennedy Space Center’s Vehicle Assembly Building and Launch Pads. Then cruise over the Canaveral Locks before heading back along the Banana River to Merritt Island.
Amp up the excitement with an aerobatic flight that includes the kind of graceful loops and rolls you’ve seen at air shows. Whether you choose a peaceful scenic flight, or a high-flying aerobatic thrill, this Biplane Sightseeing Tour is something you’ll never forget!
