Какво ще правите

After pausing a year for Covid, we're finally back in business. 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 open cockpit biplane (Stearman) over the beautiful 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, although the entire experience lasts about 1.5 hours.

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, anniversaries, graduations, or "just because". It's also a great gift for the pilot who has everything. A Hold Harmless agreement will need to be signed before flying.

This is the ultimate experience. Starting from the open-air cabin aboard the beautiful antique biplane that possesses rich history, to the engineer & pilot Craig who carefully went through the Stearman to explain everything — as if you are a real cadet during WWII. The ability to control the plane mid-air is out of this world. I would definitely do it again.

This is the best bang for the buck going on air bnb. Very cool airplane and a great pilot! Unbelievable views and the opportunity to fly a piece of history! Only wish there was a longer flight option as I would take it.

We originally booked this for my father’s birthday. It seemed so great, even as a bystander, I booked it again for myself. It is every bit as amazing as it sounds. Highly recommended.

This is an experience not to be missed. Flying in an open air cockpit over Scottsdale Arizona is fabulous In the morning sunlight.

Flying a Stearman is so different from flying a regular airplane. Craig is an expert of it and I learned a lot. And the control stick is the coolest ever I have ever seen!!!

Craig is awesome...I purchased the flight lesson for my partner who is fearful of heights but never says no to an adventure. Craig is a great teacher, beyond just providing knowledge he was able to set her mind to ease and even provided a barf bag at request before flight (she didn't need it in the end but she felt better knowing it was there).
