Now is your chance to fly the legendary Boeing Stearman. Our aircraft is a stock 1942 Boeing Stearman and other than a few modifications for an increased level of safety, it is exactly what our heros flew in WWII. Waldo will take the guest through the first 6-8 missions as established by the instructors who taught cadets to fly in these amazing aircraft. How do we know? Our flight program was developed by Lon Cooper, a flight instructor with the Lodwick School ofAeronautics in Lakeland, FL, from 1941-1945. With dual controls and a modern intercom system, the guest will have no problem entering basic training in this beautifully restored plane. Video recordings of the flight are available for an extra $50, and look like this (click link for video.)****Full audio is recorded on all flights-some youtube users choose to mute the sound experience.****
