This experience was first rate in every aspect. The aircraft was meticulously maintained and in excellent condition. The pilot was early, was waiting on us, was friendly, gave an excellent tour of the aircraft and overview of what we were going to do. He has over 5000 + hours in the aircraft and it surely shows. He was engaging, affable and courteous. The flight was even better than I had anticipated and was worth every penny. Even though I have had my private pilots license since age 16 and have flown Apache helicopters for the Army, I had always dreamed of a ride in an open cockpit biplane. For me, it was an experience of a life time!!! Book this experience, you will enjoy every minute of it!!!

Hi Charles, thank you for taking the time to share your wonderful experience with us! Dave is indeed an amazing man and pilot and he has so so much to share, I will make sure to let him know how much you enjoyed his flight and his company. Wow, that is so awesome that you flew Apache helicopters for the Army, thank you so much for your service. It's so great to hear that the flight exceeded your expectations and that you were able to experience something you've always dreamed of! Let us know when you're ready for more amazing experiences as we would love to help you cross more off your bucket list! Cheers, Kelsey
I did the aecrobatic ride and wow what a blast. This was such an amazing experience that I will never forget. The pilot; Dave is a wonderful guy and made the experience even better. He shared a lot of great history about the plane as well as the surrounding area. His skill in the cockpit was amazing and the entire flight was smooth from takeoff through all the stunts and to the landing.
David was amazing. Me being a pilot as well, he made the experience unforgettable. I can't wait to do it again!
This was an amazing day! The plane was gorgeous, and the pilot (David Brown) was wonderful. He was fun and friendly, and he clearly was an experienced pilot. This ride was exciting and fun! A day to remember.
I had a great time and will return. My instructor was fanatic and made my experience worth returning for a longer session, whether you just wanted a nice, smooth plane ride or the excitement of flips, turns, etc.
Dave Brown was outstanding. He was friendly, knowledgeable, personable, and super-talented. Everyone at the airport raved about his skills/talent, and a former WWII pilot couldn't stop describing his abilities and comparing him to the very "best." My husband had a BLAST -- couldn't stop talking about it and is waiting for the next ticket, I think. We'll probably be back --it was quite a drive from home-- but so worth it. If you want a great ride, in a great plane, with a great pilot -- this is your opportunity!! THANKS!!!
This was one of the coolest things I have ever done. It was great to fly with and talk with David. I did the full hour experience and it was awesome to get the experience of flying the plane and doing aerobatics. One caution: it's going to make you want to have a plane and that could get expensive!
The experience was awesome and Dave was super knowledgeable and kind and fun...he has the best job EVER!! Thanks Dave!
