Two things about this experience: 1) The flight in a Stearman Bi-Plane. Wow! This is such a fun time in an airplane. It's a beautiful bird and an incredible experience to just sit in the open cockpit with the sound, wind, and scenery. David will do as much or little aerobatics as you're stomach desires, and lets you take the controls if you wish. Talk about a bucket list check=mark! 2) Your pilot. David Brown might have been made to bring this experience to people. His love and knowledge of aviation and genuine friendliness make him the perfect guide for this experience. I felt like I'd known David my whole life, and couldn't have felt more appreciated. It seemed like it was such a joy for him to be able to take me up in the air with him for a while. This is definitely the type of experience that you must have on your bucket list, and if it's something you'd like to do, you're guaranteed to get the most our of it by booking this very one.

We will be sure to pass along the glowing remarks to David and his team, as we know how special it is for them to be able to get you flying during times like these.  It is wonderful to know that your time out flying was nothing short of stellar!

What will you cross off next time?  Looking forward to your next experience with us!  Best, Sophia 
Without exaggeration, one of the greatest experiences of my life! There is absolutely nothing that can replicate the experience of an open cockpit flight in such an amazing aircraft. The pilot, David, is top notch, incredibly knowledgeable, experienced, and skilled. I have every intention of returning for more flights. I can not recommend this experience enough!
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi David, thanks so much for such an amazing review! We 100% agree with you that nothing can replicate the experience of an open cockpit flight in a Stearman Biplane. And we are so thrilled to hear it was one of the greatest experiences of your life! I will make sure to let David know how much you enjoyed the flight and pass along your kind words. Have a great rest of your week! Best, Kelsey
It was a wonderful experience, from beginning to end. My pilot, Dave, was great. He took time to explain the history of the plane. It was important to me to know everything from its manufacture to its war time use. Great fun.
The biplane ride was absolutely fantastic. Pilot was very knowledgeable and friendly.
Fantastic experience, great pilot, beautiful aircraft, and nothing but fun, fun, fun.
