This location has several different planes and Jeeps where you can walk around and get up close with. All have been flown to this area which is amazing and the history is on the plaques in front of each plane. You can buy a ticket to take a plane ride in a double winged plane or just walk around. They have plans to really expand this attraction in the future. It was a very relaxing way to spend a day

Great time at this display of vintage planes from the Wright brothers era thru WW II . Very informative l Host was riveting. Learned an awful lot. Can't wait to back next. Next time I will take a ride on that 1929 bi-plane I should have taken this time!

"Scaled Back Museum Still Excellent"

I had not visited in many years and certainly not since they announced scaled back hours (Friday thru Sunday, 11 AM to 3 PM) and seasonal only hours. But the old museum that was open every day of the week just wasn't sustainable. So this is the next best thing. Mr Weeks is a former racer and this is his private collection. He restores planes too. At least we can enjoy some of his work and for a very reasonable price.

"Excellent Aviation Experience"

We all owe Kermit Weeks a big Thank You for all the work he has done to single handedly save many of our historical aircraft from the junk heap. Weeks has his airplanes meticulously restored and then allows us to come and see them. My only regret is that they are only open three days a week now to the general public. I have been to some other great aviation museums such as PIMA Air and Space Museum in Tucson and Mid-America Air Museum in Liberal, Kansas but Fantasy of Flight in Polk City, Florida is the only one I know of in which most of the aircraft are restored to air worthy condition. Fantasy of Flight is truly a "Must See" when you are in Central Florida and Mr. Weeks, THANK YOU for all you are doing to save and restrore so many aircraft!

I have been driving past the DC-3 on I-4 for months on business trips to Orlando, but I have never been able to make my schedule line up with the Friday-Sunday hours. I made it this past week, and it was great. The collection is fantastic, but the tour guide was what really put it over the top. He anchored each plane in the historical and technological context of aviation, and even for someone who takes in quite a bit of aviation history, it was enlightening and enriching. I only wish I could see the full facility, as it apparently was open in previous years. All the same, if you're into planes and are in Tampa or Orlando, make the trip. My 3-year-old daughter came with us, and while she wasn't game for the full in-depth tour, she did have fun watching the biplane take off and land and with the various video displays in the museum for the full three hours we were there.
