Coastal Biplane Tours
Biplane rides will resume in Spring 2014.
Classic Air Ventures provides open cockpit biplane scenic tours in an authentic 1940 or 1941 WACO UPF-7. The open cockpit design allows for panoramic views and an incredible photo opportunity. Two passengers, sitting side-by-side, can experience the romance and adventure of a nostalgic flight into yesteryear.
Classic Air Ventures supples helmets and goggles for the Coastal Biplane Tour. After the flight, passengers receive a flight certificate signed by the pilot in command. Coastal Biplane Tours are safe and fun and for all ages. Come and experience what over 30,000 excited passengers have shared since 1995. So strap in, and let's take a spectacular flight along the coast of Georgia's Golden Isles.
Phil Ulrich is the pilot and owner of Classic Air Ventures and has been flying for over 30 years, logging over 30,000 hours of flight time (8000 hours of which were in the WACO’s) and has carried over 30,000 very satisfied customers.
