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?
In the Biplanes, all the passenger cockpit controls have been removed to safely accommodate two 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.

“We had a wonderful time! The pilot and the attendant got us all set up and strapped in to the vintage biplane! We took off and had an amazing tour over to the coast from Sonoma, and the whole Sonoma and Napa Valleys! The weather was perfect, and we would recommend this experience to anyone!!”
“We had such a wonderful time and we were excited to try the aerobatics. The pilot and staff at the airport were friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and kept us feeling so safe. Flying around the wine country in an open cockpit biplane was beyond our wildest dreams and soooo cool. I can't wait to do this again. The aerobatics were very smooth and just felt so easy to enjoy. I wish I had been taking pictures at this part of the flight; Next Time! I would also like to fly in the T6 Texan. Oh! The P40 also. Thank you so much for this great experience.”

Hey Patrick, we're happy to hear you had a great time! We hope to see you back again soon for more adventures. Regards, Cloud 9 Living Team
“It was a childhood dream to fly in a biplane. I used to build WWI model airplanes. My son knew this and had the money to make this dream come true. I have but only one regret... I knew I didn't want to do loops and barrel -rolls, but I would have liked to do something other than just cruise. It almost felt like a flight simulator. I couldn't communicate with the pilot, once in flight, so I had no way to let him know I wanted to do a few mild maneuvers. Oh well,,, maybe next time?”
