Great ride. It was beautiful! Our pilot was very friendly and knowledgeable. Great for “kids” of any age, young or old! Would definitely go again.
What a wonderfully exciting flight. Steve, the pilot, is great fun and we felt safe and secure ever moment of this great adventure. I can’t recommend it enough.
The biplane tour was awesome. Being in an open cockpit plane was something I’ve never done, and now won’t forget. The pilot was very informative and courteous. He even gave us a certificate so we would remember our anniversary for years to come.
Highly recommend this. Buy the movie. FYI, a great couple runs this business.
I bought the Biplane ride as a gift for my father’s 70th birthday and he had a blast. Steve, the pilot, was very nice and accommodating while we took pictures and enjoyed the pre-flight preparation. I would highly recommend Classic Biplane Tours to my family and friends.
Many, many thanks for a wonderful experience. Can’t wait to see the video!!
A fun, outstanding experience. The pilot (owner) is very friendly, extremely accommodating, and very flexible. He will work with you to make your experience the best. I can’t wait to go again and will use this as a gift for someone else again.

Thank you for accommodating our 5 year old son. He LOVED it.
Thanks for being so accommodating to my husband and sister-in-law. They had a great time, and appreciated the DVD!
Took my wife for the Classic Biplane Tour on our anniversary, and it was an awesome experience. Great views of Louisville Airport, Churchill downs, Downtown, Ohio River and the historic water tower. It was a great experience riding in an open cockpit biplane!
It was a wonderful experience! We put the video that we took to music and posted it on Facebook. I hope to be able to come back again.
This was bought for my autistic grandson, and his grandfather. My grandson absolutely loved it! The people there were really nice and informative about the whole thing! Thumbs up!
Fantastic air tour over Louisville, would definitely commend to anyone wanting to see Louisville from the air :)
Pilot was a great guy….laid back, yet gave good directions and was concerned we could see/hear/communicate and have a good flight experience……..which we did. Will likely go back for a longer flight.
What fun! The pilot and his assistant were so friendly and nice.
Steve does a great job- takes good care of his customers.
An amazing experience! Would definitely do it again and highly recommend this to everyone!
Great trip. Short but sweet. Loved the experience of seeing Louisville from a biplane!
