Mit fogunk csinálni?

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 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.

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.

I'm an FAA Certificated Flight Instructor with over 2500 hours of experience flying antique airplanes. I have a Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering and spent 38 years developing rocket engines for NASA and the military. I've also been a pilot for the Commemorative Air Force and have participated in the construction of many different homebuilt airplanes over the years. I'm passionate about flying my open cockpit biplane around Arizona's spectacular scenery, and look forward to sharing this experience with you.

Bought this for my husbands surprise birthday gift. He said it’s one of the coolest things he’s ever done! Three days later and he’s still talking about all of the things he learned, and how cool the flight was. Craig was so detailed about the plane history and that really added to the experience. I highly recommend checking this off of your bucket list!

This Was Definitely By Far One of The Coolest Things I've Done In My Life So Far, Actually Getting To Fly An Actual Plane Was Very Surreal! Craig Was Very Knowledgeable And Very Accommodating , I Thoroughly Enjoyed His Historical Artifacts About The Plane And Learning Some of Its History. Being In The Air And Taking The Controls Is Definitely Something I'll Always Remember And A Story I'll Tell For Ages To Come, I HIGHLY Recommend Taking Part In This Once In A Lifetime Type Experience! I Would Also Highly Recommend Paying The Extra $25 To Capture The GoPro Footage To Complete The Experience And Have That For The Memory Collection!

This was easily the coolest experience EVER!! Craig gives some amazing history of the plane and makes you feel 100% safe. You can tell he knows what he is doing and he even lets you take the controls while in the air!! Can’t say enough good things about this experience!!

Epic. I’m terrifieddd of heights and flying and I am SO glad I did this. Craig is clearly very knowledgeable about the history (so cool) of the plane and it’s inner workings and made it super easy to follow instructions. I forced myself to go and I’m so glad I did.

This was a great experience and words really don’t do it justice, but nonetheless, a 5-star experience. Craig is extremely respectful and professional and tries to tailor the experience to the individuals liking while maintaining safety. The plane is well maintained and in such great condition. You do get a brief history of the plane in the beginning and then you take to the skies. You will have the opportunity to fly the plane yourself if you desire and experience a few maneuvers. He also does take a video of the experience which can be purchased at the end. Again Craig, thank you for allowing this great historical experience.
