More Scenic Air Tours

I just heard of another outfit offering scenic flights over the Orlando area.

Preston Aviation’s Scenic Flights is located in Leesburg, in Lake County, about 45 minutes or an hour north of Orlando. They offer flights in a Piper Cub or (more exciting to my way of thinking) in an open cockpit PT-17 Stearman Biplane.

As the Barnstormers of yesterday used to say…”We will take you high or low, fast or slow, anywhere you care to go. It’s worth the ride just to see whether you like it or not! Fly over your house to see who is visiting your spouse. Special one-way trips for mothers-in-law. Our pilot will set you down so softly even the grass won’t object….

Passenger sits in the front seat. One passenger at a time. Must be 48″ tall. Helmet, headset and goggles provided.

Piper Cub rides start at $30 for a short 15 minute hop, or $120 an hour. The Biplane is pricier, with prices starting at $80 or $320 an hour.

More information on the web site, above, or at 352-326-9975. The address is 9020 Airport Blvd. (they’re at the Leesburg Airport), Leesburg, FL 34748.

Be sure to check out Orlando’s other plane ride options. If you are more adventuorous (and have deep pockets), you can actually take control of an airplane on your Orlando trip!
