Co będziecie robić

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.

Not only was this a terrific experience I was privy to a piece of history. Craig Made me feel like I was stepping back in time this time and for a few moments I few moments I felt like a WASP. I actually got to maneuver the plane!!! Craig was very concise precise and super friendly. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who has ever wanted to fly over the mountains in an open cockpit. The lesson was spot on!

My husband did the flight with Craig, and was so happy he did, this is what he said: “Craig was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable and explained everything about the aircraft and what we were going to be doing. The aircraft itself was beautiful and obviously very well maintained. As for the flight...OH MY FREAKING GOD! I had one of the most memorable times of my life. The experience of actually flying a plane was anxious and exhilarating all at the same time. Craig talked me through everything and kept it fun. The view from the plane must be like the view God has. This is SOLID bucket list material! If asked if I would do it again my response would be "Shut up and take my money!"

Craig is amazing! Such an incredibly intelligent, humble and fun person! He is a teacher at heart and he leaves nothing to surprise. He walks you through everything and you feel incredibly comfortable. Get on his calendar because he is worth it! Once in a lifetime experience.

I bought this experience as a birthday present for my fiancé. I knew he would be excited when we got there but his smile was the biggest I’ve ever seen! This experience was definitely one of a kind. Craig covers so much history and is a great story teller. He talked about how to flew a plane for the entire weekend and I won the award of best future wifey. 🥇 He rated the experience 11/10. Just book it.

I did a flight lesson with Craig back in 2019 and gifted my boyfriend a flight in Oct 2021. We both enjoyed our experience. Craig is friendly and knowledgeable

THIS WAS AWESOME!!!!! Craig allows you to fly a piece of history!!!! First, you’re given that historical background of the plane and the time it was used during, you see how he restored it, and you get a overview of the plane parts and how they function, while Craig explains what your flight will be like. After that, you hop in, get strapped up, and a lesson on the controls and prepare to take off! The views were beautiful! I was speechless! Operating the main steering controls weren’t really as hard as I thought! I also opted to do most of the extra thrill rides, except for the last one! I chickened out! Lol But I always felt safe, despite me screaming a lot! Hahaha! I had a blast!!! More than anything Craig is a very patient and awesome guide. Such a kind soul! This was an experience I’ll never forget and I won’t hesitate to do it again when I come back!!!
