The 2018 American Barnstormers Tour will exclusively feature 10 vintage Travel Air open cockpit biplanes.  Five of the biplanes will function as static displays at each venue, with owners and restorers available to answer crowd questions.  Five of the biplanes will offer ride experiences to tour attendees.  The goal of the tour is to extend fellowship, to bridge a gap between the modern day and aviation history, to allow folks immersive flight experiences in the biplanes, to draw communities to their local airports, to tell the story of the modern day barnstormers through documentary filming efforts, and to act as ambassadors to the vintage aviation community.

We were there this past Sat and you took our Uncle George Grimes for a ride. This met the world to him and to us. At almost 93 he will not be around to long. In his own words, this was the best day ever and he said he will never forget. And for him to fly the plane he learned to fly in at 18 years old in Navy colors was just icing on the cake. You and your Husband are wonderful people. Thank you from the bottom of our Hearts. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you...
