Feel the wind in your face as you speed down the runway and lift off into the clear blue sky in a 1941 WWII Stearman biplane. The Earth descends below you and you feel the freedom of the open cockpit in this aerobatic flight over the beautiful northern California countryside.
Once comfortably in the air, your pilot will give you the signal and it's time to hold on. Get ready to experience the thrill of inverting to "down is up" pull up into a loop, a barrel roll and a hammer head then if you're still "thumbs up" and smiling, you will go into the famous Cuban 8!
The 20-minute flight takes you over the breath taking fields and vineyards of Sonoma and the Napa Valley where, from just a few hundred feet above the ground, you can appreciate the rolling hills and acres of green pastures from an inverted perspective!
The 40-minute flight offers 3 scenic routes (weather dependent):
Hold on to your hat, because you are about the experience aerobatic flying at its best!
The Boeing PT-17 Stearman is the first aircraft a cadet would fly during flight training prior to and during World War II. Known for its stability and strength, the Stearman was a reliable primary trainer and remains a popular classic today.
Your 1941 Stearman has been modified to accommodate 2 people in the front cockpit. The seat is 32 inches across so the seating is cozy.
