Are there any weight limits?

The maximum combined weight for passengers is 500 lbs.

Are there any age restrictions?

While there is no legal minimum age, the tour provider recommends no younger than 3 years of age for children accompanied by an adult. A child of normal stature for this age will fit safely in the seat belts and be tall enough to take in the view. The child must be able to wear a headset or earplugs due to engine noise. There is no maximum age, as long as you can get into and out of the cockpit. (It requires a little bit of flexibility).

What type of airplane will we be flying in?

You’ll be flying in a Waco UPF-7 open-cockpit biplane.

Can I talk to the pilot during the flight?

Yes, the biplane has an intercom system that allows two-way communication between the pilot and the passengers. Headsets are provided.

Can I bring a camera?

Yes! A camera with a wide-angle lens and strap is perfect. A camcorder is good as long as it is one of the smaller, handheld types.
