Fun experience

Baystormers, name is fun twist on old Barnstormer rides. Baystormers operates on first come, first serve basis. Passengers fly side by side in front open cockpit and pilot is in rear cockpit. Amazing views during tour over The Bass Islands of Lake Erie.

What do you give your son for his 21st birthday that will be memorable and unexpected? Yes, a bi plane tour! To see my son grin from ear to ear while wearing the funny cloth head cover, will be a memory forever seared in my mind. He was thrilled to take the ride and see St. Augustine and the beach... More

This is an amazing way to see when the Lake Erie coast has to offer. Rick, the pilot talks you through the flight and the sights are incredible. It really was the highlight of our trip. We can't wait to do this again.

While visiting Put-in-Bay with our 2 18-year-old nephews July 26, 2014 we drove our golfcart to the airport to check out a helicopter or bi-plane ride. Never did we expect we could go on a bi-plane ride as usually things like that require a reservation. However, our timing was right and we got to 'get right on' a bi-plane ride.... More

Riding in the Bi-plane was one of the best experiences I have done. This plane was so smooth and it was beautiful scenery. Rick, the pilot, did an awesome job. I would make this definitely one of your priorities if you go to Put N Bay. It is a great way to experience the island.

Baystormers was very accommodating and professional. We asked for a same-day, evening tour, coincidentally when the Presidential campaign had shut down the region's air space; however, the pilot, Rick, was ready to take us up as soon as the air space had re-opened. Evidently the pilot has enjoyed a long career flying for a major airfreight carrier, and before you... More

This is a unique experience. Most folks will never ride in an open cockpit Bi Plane, but Baystormers offers about a 15 minute flight for 2 around Put In Bay for 150.00. Baystormers usually flies on Saturday and Sunday from around 1000 until sunset. The plane is cool, the pilot is cool (his name is Rick) and the flight is... More
