    Weather Dependent
    This experience is weather dependent. Always contact the experience provider with any questions regarding weather conditions.
    What To Wear
    Wear comfortable clothing appropriate for weather conditions. We recommend dressing in layers and avoiding windbreakers as they tend to fill with air. A cloth flying helmet and ear plugs are provided. If you would like to take a camera on board, please make sure it has a strap (leash) to secure around your wrist or neck.
    Can I take control of the airplane?
    No, your job is to sit back and enjoy the view. All the passenger cockpit controls have been removed to safely accommodate 2 passengers.
    Are the airplanes heated?
    No, these are circa 1940's aircraft, the real deal!
    Is is safe?
    Safety is always a priority. For 30 years they have maintained a perfect flying safety record and each aircraft is maintained to meet the highest FAA maintenance standards.
    Can I bring a camera or camcorder?
    Yes! But your camera MUST have a strap. A camera with a wide angle or panoramic lens is best, but even a throw away camera will capture this unforgettable experience. A camcorder is ok as long as it is one of the smaller hand held types.
    What if my flight is cancelled for weather?
    Always contact the experience provider with any questions regarding weather conditions. If your flight is cancelled for weather, you will reschedule directly with the pilot.
