Какво ще правите

After pausing a year for Covid, we're finally back due to popular demand. We've also moved our biplane flight lesson to historic Falcon Field in Mesa, AZ. In this experience you will be exposed to flying in an open cockpit biplane (Stearman) over the beautiful Usery Mountains, northeast of Mesa. The Stearman was used as a primary training airplane for most of the pilots during WWII, so you will be learning in an authentic piece of history. There are only 2 seats in the plane, one for you and one for me. We'll start with a pre-flight inspection followed by an explanation of the radios and controls. We can fly smooth and level if you like, or we can add in some more energetic maneuvers for those that desire a more thrilling experience. You will be invited to take the controls as part of the lesson. From engine start to return will take approximately 30 minutes.

This is a unique experience where you will be exposed to the same type of training that the "Greatest Generation" did during World War II. Flying and training in the Stearman is like traveling back in time nearly 80 years. This experience would certainly make a most memorable gift for birthdays, weddings, holidays, anniversarys, graduations, or "just because". It's also a great gift for the pilot who has everything. I only know my schedule about 2 months in advance, so my Airbnb calendar will continue to be updated mont

Къде ще бъдете

On your GPS, just enter the address "2745 N Greenfield Rd". Upon arrival, look to the east and you will see the airport hangars. I will let you through the airport gate where you can park. We will depart from the Falcon Field airport and fly over to the beautiful Usery Mountains as you learn how to fly the legendary Stearman biplane. You can wear jeans or shorts (depending on the temperature) along with a t-shirt and closed toe shoes

Our 16yr old son took his first flight with Craig and he had an amazing time. Craig took time to talk about the history of his airplane and he carefully explained how the flight would go. It was very interesting for us all. Our son had an amazing time on the flight! I thought that it was really a great value, I’m so glad we booked this experience, it was well worth it!
