A few years ago, my family and I visited an airplane museum in Central Florida called “Fantasy of Flight,” and my brother and I got to take a ride up in a biplane, complete with leather helmet, goggles and scarf. It was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done.
Now, it’s your turn, Atlanta!
Biplane Atlanta, which operates from the Atlanta-Peachtree DeKalb Airport, offers open-air cockpit biplane rides. Flights are available daily, sun-up to sunset (weather permitting) by appointment from the patio of either the 57th Fighter Group Restaurant or the Downwind Restaurant, both conveniently located on the runway at the Atlanta-Peachtree DeKalb Airport. I have not actually flown on one of Biplane Atlanta’s flights, but I can tell you from my experience in Florida that it is an awesome ride – the feeling of being in the open air while flying is like none other. I am really looking forward to booking a flight to take my husband on this incredible experience!
The planes are suitable for two passengers, so it’s great for an adventure with a friend or a date! (Romantic sunset flights are available at no extra charge.) There are weight and age restrictions (children under 9 must be accompanied by an adult on the flight) so visit the website for more information!
You have to call ahead to make a reservation, but flights run daily, sun-up to sun-down. For pricing and packages, please click here – and call 770-457-5757 for more information or to book your flight!
