Co będziecie robić

Today you will be exposed to flying in an open cockpit biplane (Stearman) over the beautiful San Tan Mountains, southeast of Phoenix. 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 over 75 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 monthly
Other things to note
May need to re-schedule in the event of adverse weather. Summer flights restricted to early mornings because of higher winds and temperatures later in the day. Bring a jacket if temp less than 75F.

What an amazing experience! I got this for my wife for a Valentine’s Day present. She gets a little motion sickness. I was a little worried that she would have a bad experience but she left with a great feeling of fun and were able to do 3 of Craig’s 4 special maneuvers. I, too, had an amazing time being able to tour the aircraft. Thank you, Craig, for an unforgettable experience and for sharing your passion. It was well worth the price and I would highly recommend this adventure.

I put my 13 year old daughter in the front seat of Craig’s plane for her birthday. He walked her through every aspect of the plane, controls, history and his connection to aviation. She was able to take control of the plane in flight for a short time and returned with a smile as wide as the wingspan. If you are looking for something truly once in a lifetime in Phoenix look no further.

The whole experience was an absolute blast! Craig was very knowledgeable, friendly, gave a detailed rundown of the controls, and told an amazing history of the WWII airplane. Being able to fly the airplane around is an experience I will never forget! Also, the weather was perfect!

Awesome experience. Flying in one of these vintage WWII airplanes was surreal. As an airline pilot, this was a new and exciting experience. Craig have a great lesson on the aircraft and history along with expert airmanship. I was able to fly the aircraft for a while and experience the simplicity of early aircraft design. Absolutely recommended to aviators and non-aviators.

Craig, recently enjoyed your Airbnb adventure activity, an open cockpit biplane flight lesson. My family bought this experience for me as a birthday present, what a wonderful surprise. It has been a dream/ bucket list item for me for a long time. You did a great job explaining your vintage plane, how it was used as the first aircraft used to train WWII pilots. The flight was perfect and you were a great instructor.. best time ever. I highly recommend this experience in Gilbert/Mesa Arizona. Thank you!

From the start, Craig welcomed my husband and me as a gracious host. He thoroughly explained his Stearman biplane and he has a passion for what he does. His explanation before you leave the ground prepares you for what to expect and how everything works. I am so happy that we both got to experience this and my husband and I left with nothing but memories and smiles. We truly valued Craig's one-of-a-kind experience and would love to do this again.
