- Biplane Rides of America…Where Dreams Take Flight!
Welcome to our 2017 Season!!
Our Biplane Tours are offered out of the Morey Airport most of the time at 8300 Airport Road, Middleton, WI (Exit 250 from Hwy 12 and travel 1 mile west to the airport)
*Rides can be taken out of the Brodhead Airport also at certain times during the season.
Notice: We will be operating quite a bit outside the Madison area this year as we will be attending some new venues. My relief pilot Lyman will be operating out of the Morey Airport the month of June as I’ll be gone for a few weeks.
*We will also be operating for 3 weeks in August in Manitowish Waters. Please try to schedule your gift certificate flights early in the year because of the reduced time we will be flying in Middleton.
***Please note the change in Hours and days of operation for this summer 2017…….. Updated on 5-20-17
Flights on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Friday mornings will now be by advanced reservations only. Reservations can be made by phone within as little as 1 hour before flight departure at times. (We need at least an hour travel time to Morey airport from our destination). We also have a 2 passenger minimum for our 4 place aircraft. ( If you are a single rider and can not locate somebody to fly with you, we will put you on a list and try to add you to another flight that is already scheduled. Fridays, Saturdays, and Sunday’s we will be at the ride tent east of the parking lot from 10 to 6 to offer reserved and walk up flights. Rides are weather dependent so check with us to see if we are flying.

4 Unique Ride Options Are Available:
Local Sight-Seeing Tour – this 15 minute flight is a great experience and offers a nice taste of the open flying cockpit adventure while viewing the beautiful local sights of Middleton and the surrounding area. This flight is $80 per person (fare based on a minimum of 2 passengers and may cost more for a single passenger)
Wisconsin River Tour – this will be our 5th year offering the popular 30 minute flight which takes you over Mazomanie, up the beautiful Wisconsin River, then northeast to Sauk City and returns for a soft landing on the grass runway at Morey Airport. This flight is $150 per person (fare based on a minimum of 2 passengers and may cost more for a single passenger).
Lake Wisconsin Tour– Our 3rd year offering this Tour. We have had an interest in flying over Lake Wisconsin the last couple summers so we are offering this new 45 minute tour directly to the Wisconsin river west of Sauk City by the Wollerschiem winery and up the river to beautiful Lake Wisconsin. We then head east over the Merrimac Ferry and along the southern shore line while meandering back to Middleton over Lodi. This flight is $200 per person (fare based on a minimum of 2 passengers and may cost more for a single passenger). This flight not recommended for people with motion sickness due to the length of flight and hilly terrain.
Devils Lake Tour- Our 1st year offering this Tour. An extension to our Lake Wisconsin Tour, this 1 hour ride will take you around beautiful Devils Lake State Park. The lake is nestled down in between the Baraboo hills and is very scenic and rich with history of being a vacation destination for many Chicagoans back in the early days. This flight will only be conducted on nice days that have smoother air during the late afternoon or early evenings. The fare for this gorgeous flight is $250 per person (fare based on a minimum of 2 passengers and may cost more for a single passenger). This flight not recommended for people with motion sickness due to the length of flight and hilly terrain.
Bring your camera and shoot a few photos, but not too many…we don’t want you to miss the ride! Helmets, leather jackets, goggles, and hearing protection are provided if desired, but not required.
You’ll really enjoy the ride in this solid and stable aircraft.
Gift certificates are always available!
We retain the right to add passengers to flights to fill the aircraft.
DID YOU KNOW? Our Biplane Ride operation is only 45 minutes from Wisconsin Dells down Highway 12 exit 250 from the Kalahari Water Park. If traveling through Wisconsin and in the Milwaukee area we are a little more than an hour away. Keep us in mind…for an experience of a lifetime!!
The only 4 place Biplane in the Midwest !!!!!
