Weather Dependent
This experience is weather dependent. Always contact the Experience provider with any questions regarding weather conditions.
What To Wear
Wear clothing appropriate for weather conditions. We recommend dressing as if you were going for a ride in a convertible.
Is it scary?
The ride will be a gentle, level ride.   One reporter described it as "like a road in a convertible but with a better view."  Some folks have said they are afraid of heights, but no worries... believe it or not so are some of the pilots. Fact is, most people are afraid of edges not heights. In the aircraft you are surrounded by the cockpit and wings and there is none of that "on the edge looking down" sensation at all.
Is it safe?
Yes.  All the pilots are FAA Certified Commercial Pilots, and most are also Certified Flight Instructors.  Many of the pilots are either active duty military pilots or airline pilots.
Are there any age, size or weight restrictions?
Two large people will fit, although first class seating in a 1920s biplane is cozier than coach seats in modern airliners. The combined weight of participants should not be over 400 lbs. As for age, we've flown with youngsters from 2 to 102.
Are we limited to flying your standard routes?
With some exceptions, we can go wherever you want in the time you have on your flight. Be sure to tell the pilot what you want even if it's on our standard route. If you want to fly over something/someone they must be within 25 miles of our airport, and you can figure it will take about as long to get there as it would in a car. Keep in mind, our pilot is the ultimate authority on your flight and may need to alter the standard route due to weather, safety, or other concerns.

“Bonnie, the Pilots and Crew saw to it that my niece and I thouroughly enjoyed our flight over La Jolla and the Coast. It was a clear day with 75 degree temperatures, shorts and short sleeve shirts. Perfect conditions for the Bi-Plane flight. This was my third time flying the Bi-Plane and fourth time flying with this professional group of people. We loved it and look forward to our next trip together! Great job Folks!!!”
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hello Don! Bonnie is definitely one of my favorite people and the rest of the staff is amazing as well. Thank you so much for the descriptive review and we are so glad you had an amazing experience to share with your niece and appreciate you letting us be a part of it as well! Regards, Kelsey
“Everything from booking the biplane ride to the actual ride experience was excellent. Cloud 9 Living was very helpful and friendly with the booking, and the airplane company was the same. Excellent service all around, and the flight was fabulous! I would definitely recommend to all my friends. Thank you for such a pleasant experience! ”
“It was fun and something different for our anniversary. It was a little overcast outside, but we still had great views and a smooth ride! Everyone was very nice.”
“I love looking at Cloud 9 Living for gifts for my fiancé because A) It typically means I get to participate in the gift also and B) it's a great way to get out and enjoy the outdoors in a fun and adventurous way. I couldn't wipe the smile off my face the entire time we were in the air and my fiancé and I have not stopped talking about it since. It definitely was something we'd like to repeat in the near future. Awesome experience, awesome people both on the Cloud 9 side and the Barnstorming Adventures side. A+ all the way around :)”
“A beautiful way to turn 50. Thank you!”
“Great flight!”
“Just a quick note to thank you for the fantastic time I had during my Bi-Plane ride last month. It truly was a highlight of my trip. I was very impressed with the entire experience, from greeting, plane orientation and actual air time. Your pilot was very professional and likeable. I believe his name was Eric. My cockpit partner, Michelle was thrilled. It actually made a dream come true for her. She always wanted to be a pilot and ear problems prevented that due to commercial airline cabin pressures. This open cockpit ride did not trouble her ears. For 40 minutes, she felt like a real pilot in the front seat. Thanks for the wonderful memories.”
