My wife reserved a ride for us as a gift, since she knows I have a thing for biplanes. We had a blast. We did the river fly over and it was a real treat. When we arrived we met the woman at the desk who was very friendly. There was only one plane flying that day, instead of two, so we had to wait a little longer than our reserved time. Nice thing is we got to walk around the museum, so the wait was no bother at all. The flight lasted about 15 minutes and the pilot was a really friendly guy and consummate professional. Some people have mentioned that the flights are too short. I would disagree. Honestly the thrill of being in a biplane was worth it alone, and I loved when the pilot banked the plane sharply. Sure, I could have spent more time in the air, but I am not disappointed in anyway. Highly recommended.
This was a great experience! Me and my friend got the $85 per person flight that they have. It was for a 10-15 minutes flight tour of the Ottawa river. Do not wear/bring any hats as they will require you to take it off. Shades are highly recommended to wear. If you don't have one, they will provide you a pair of goggles to wear. Our pilot was well experienced and he was extremely nice. He did give us a heads-up what to expect while we're in the air. The booth is a little hard to find, you have to go in the museum and walk all the way to the back of museum close to the stairs. I suggest asking the reception by the entrance and they will give you instructions. I also like the fact that this place is so flexible. They accept last minute bookings. I called just 3 hours before our flight so if you want to do this on a whim, you may do so. This is definitely good for couples who are looking for a small thrill.
An amazing experience from beginning to end. What a wonderful way to see our capital city. We would do it again in a heart beat. We did the longest (30 - 35 min) ride and are glad we did. Also the staff and pilot were great. Highly recommend!
What an amazing experience in the heart of Ottawa. Great for tourists and local residents. The staff are extremely pleasant and explain everything in detail to you. The plane ride was exhilarating, went around a good portion of Ottawa and lasted the amount of time we paid for. The pilot was happy to talk about the experience after even though it was his break. Would highly recommend!
For the actual flight with Alex, the pilot, I would give 5 stars. Was truly an amazing experience. For an aviation fan like me, this was a dream come true. Unfortunately the check-in was totally ridiculous, the staff lady was disrespectful, conceited and didn't tread us like valued customers. Besides that, she didn't pick up the phone all day (I wanted to confirm the flight due to weather conditions). They don't accept Amex as well, so if you don't have multiple credit cards you are screwed.
