This is an experience you probably can’t have back home. The open cockpit biplane is very similar to what was flown in World War I.

You’ll be free to enjoy some amazing sightseeing and amazing aerial views of Put-in-Bay island, port Clinton, and the other Lake Erie Islands.
If you’d like, the highly trained pilot will give you a lesson on how to fly the plane, then you can fly it yourself for a bit. And if you’ve got the guts, the pilot will be more than happy to do some barrel rolls, spins, and loops. The friendly folks at Put-in-Bay Biplane Rides will help you customize your experience so that it’s perfect for you. You’ll be informed about everything you can and can’t do up in the air. Then you can design your ideal flight experience. It’ll be a ride you won’t soon forget!
