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.

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.

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!!!

What more can I say than what other guests have raved about. This was an AWESOME experience and Craig was an EXCELLENT host/pilot. I gave this as an early Christmas gift for my Dad who is soon to be 82 and he thought this was one of the best gifts ever. Craig's aeronautical explanations of the plane and flight itself were so easy to understand and interesting. The history of Steamer planes and this one in particular was also engaging. Craig is very detailed and thorough and we all felt completely at ease with his abilities and skills. On top of feeling safe and well informed, this was an absolute blast of an experience!! How unique and special for anyone but especially for those that are "hard to shop for":):)

My wife and I booked this experience for my Father's birthday, and it was terrific on all fronts. It's all he talks about to his family, to friends, to perfect strangers. It was a surprise, and he was guessing the entire drive to the airstrip. He was so excited, never dreamed he'd be able to go up in one, and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. We took dozens of photos. It would be worth it even at twice the price. I highly recommend it.
