We did a biplane flight on a recent visit to the OBX. There were four of us so we did did two flights, we all had a great time! If you are looking to experience a biplane flight, we all recommend OBX Airplanes!!

Took two of my daughters up for about a 20 minutes flight. They loved it and it was plenty of time in the air. We'd definitely do it again!

It is harder then getting into a car. Kind of like getting into a high 4 wheel drive pickup. There is a step to get in and he would have to sit up front as it is easier than getting into the back. The trip is worth it.
