It’s hard to find a better view of the Oak Island and southern Cape Fear area than the one provided by Suncoast Aviation Biplane Rides. Offering sky-high tours that soar over the fragile barrier islands, tour-goers will be treated to miles of views from an unworldly perspective that’s well above the shoreline.
The tour vehicle is one of the most unique aspects of Suncoast Aviation Biplane Rides, as visitors will take to the skies on board a World War II era, 1942 WACO UPF-7 open cockpit biplane that’s been perfectly maintained, (and is completely safe), and which provides a thrilling experience with sea breezes to boot. The plane can accommodate 2 passengers maximum, and visitors can take a ride over Oak Island, Southport, and Bald Head Island, with plenty of scenery along the way. Look down at the area’s tallest lighthouses, and snap photos of the coastline from a bird’s eye perspective. The ride is smooth throughout, but still adrenaline-pumping for the sheer experience of seeing the area’s most famed sites from the skies. With customizations available, and a seasonal operation that caters to all summertime visitors, Suncoast Aviation Biplane Ride is a truly unique, once-in-a-lifetime way to experience the Cape Fear Coastline.
