What You Can Expect
Fantasy of Flight near Orlando (around 30 minutes drive) is Florida's premier aircraft and flight attraction. Featuring unique exhibits, behind the scenes tours and "Fun with Flight" - a hands on interactive area for kids of all ages. Test your flying skills on virtual reality hang glider or hot-air balloon simulators.
Experience the history of aviation at Fantasy of Flight from early flight through to World War II, including a walk through on an authentic B-17 bomber. A collection of over 40 beautifully restored aircraft are on display in two art-deco hangars. Featured in the collection are planes used in the movies Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, The Great Waldo Pepper and most recently Flyboys.
An aerial demonstration of vintage aircraft is featured daily and offers you the opportunity to learn more about the aircraft from the pilot himself. There is a self-guided audio tour (additional cost) through ten stories of aviation history, and The Women's Airforce Service Pilots Exhibit is a tribute to the first women fliers who volunteered to fly for the military during World War II.
Remember when you first became fascinated with flight? Rekindle that wonder as you embrace the thrilling and sometimes harrowing achievements forged throughout the history of aviation. In the realistic immersion attraction, you can experience everything from man's earliest attempts at flight to the WW I trenches on the Western Front. Climb aboard an authentic B-17 Flying Fortress and feel the tension of a World War II bombing mission.
The daily tours include restoration areas previously not available to guests. From the earliest wood and fabric creations conceived by the Wright Brothers to the sheet metal expertise of the Rosie Rivoters of WWII, you will experience an insider view of what it takes to restore priceless aircraft to flyable condition.
All aboard for a Tour of the Restricted Areas which are otherwise off limits to guests. This guided tour includes an overview of the grounds including the grass runways of the private airfield and a visit to a real working maintenance hangar where the collection is repaired and maintained.
Aerial Displays (weather permitting):
A unique opportunity to see rare, vintage aircraft in flight and to speak with one of our expert pilots. Owner Kermit Weeks performs many of these demonstrations personally and is available to share his extensive knowledge of the aircraft in his collection.
