Flying Holidays

Rather than a Fly-Drive holiday in the USA, why not have a Fly-Fly holiday with us?

We’ve made renting an aircraft from our Florida base as simple as renting a car, with exclusive aircraft use and no limit on hours you can fly, this is the perfect holiday for family or friends.

Our holiday rental model is a fixed $2,300 a week (Monday to Monday) for exclusive aircraft use of an PA28 which includes 10 hours of dry flying, so pay for fuel separately as you go and fill up where you like. No sharing or booking out, it’s all yours. If you want to do more than 10 hours in the week, it is only $125 per hour (dry). The check ride (up to 2 hours of instructor time) and insurance is included in the package and you will need to have an FAA Private Pilot Certificate in hand.

Enjoy absolute freedom as you visit hundreds of fly-in destinations all over Florida with your very own aircraft to use. Fly to breakfast and dinner, fly to the Mall, fly to the pilot shops, fly to the theme parks and to the beaches. Stay locally or stay down route, it’s up to you! 

Fly everywhere. After all, this is pilot’s paradise. Check out our Keys route for inspiration. Or check out the Aviator’s Guide to FloridaTalk to our staff about your plans as we may require certain experience levels and special permissions for certain destinations.

This is the dream. Pilot’s who want to get away from it all and use their PPL to their heart’s content look no further. Enjoy all Florida has to offer and travel to exotic destinations in your own exclusive use aircraft. No sign outs, no sharing: just you, the keys to the aircraft and your imagination.

We’ll make sure you’re comfortable flying in USA airspace courtesy of our world-class instructors, who will take you through everything you need to know to get around in safety and style. After that, it’s up to you. With as much or as little support as you require, we’re here to help to have the holiday of a lifetime, whilst having the sense of achievement of building precious hours in your logbook.

What is a dream for most European pilots is very much a reality at “Pilots Paradise” in Florida. With your own plane ready to hand, is very much more than a dream.

At Pilot’s Paradise, we pride ourselves on making sure the aircraft is all yours. No sharing, no booking out, no worries. It’s a perfect fit for an adventurous couple who want to do things at their pace. Whether one or both of you are a pilot, having your own plane to see the sights and set out on whatever adventure you choose is a must for any spontaneous couple.

Use your aircraft like a hire car to fly to the beaches, fly-in restaurants and Florida Attractions. There is so much to do for the non-flyer too with beaches, a golf resorts, shopping and fine dining all in Sebastian and Vero Beach which. So take your loved one on a magnificent adventure or explore Florida as a flying team, and together you can find your piece of paradise.


What an amazing experience renting a plane from Pilots Paradise – N8441H Piper Archer took my fiance and myself across USA from Fort Pierce to El Paso Texas, up to Sedona Arizona and back through San Antonio, New Orleans, Pensacola and St Augustine.
