About this experience
The Experience: Enjoy a 30 minute Stearman Biplane ride over Virginia. The ride in the biplane can be as exciting or as relaxed as you would like it to be. The pilot will keep the plane smooth and steady if you would like to take in the sights below or can include some steep turns and wing overs if you are looking for a more exciting ride.
This ride in the unique aircraft is truly a memorable experience for all ages.
The maximum weight of participants is 300 pounds. The seat in the plane is adjustable in height. Children who wish to enjoy the ride should be able to sit by themselves during the flight. Please arrive at the airport no later than 15 minutes before your scheduled flight time. There are a number of reasons your flight may be cancelled due to the weather. You will not be taken up on a day where you will not be thrilled with your flight or if it is unsafe to fly. The pilot has the authority to cancel, change, or shorten a flight due to weather or other variables. If the flight is cancelled due to inclement weather we will gladly reschedule your flight for the next best date. This Stearman biplane ride will last for 30 minutes. We expect you to be at the venue for around 1 hour. This voucher is valid for one person to enjoy a biplane ride. Aircrafts seat the pilot plus one passenger at a time. Spectators are more than welcome to come and watch. Anyone attending will be able to view the aircraft taking off and landing as well as some of the flying, depending on the nature of the ride and how far we are venturing out for the day. Chairs are available for anyone who is waiting at the hangar area and there is a climate controlled lounge area at the airport office with restroom facilities and snack machines. Also there will be photo opportunities before and after the flight with the aircraft so don't forget your camera. It is always a good idea to bring a jacket. It really depends on the season of the year however and the weather for the day. During the summer months a short sleeve shirt is comfortable, but most other times it is best to wear a jacket to be comfortable. Some may also prefer to wear some light gloves. Comfortable shoes such as sneakers make climbing in and out much easier than high heels also! And also wearing sun glasses is helpful to protect your eyes from the wind and of course, the sun! You will be provided with a cloth helmet with earphones to wear during the flight so no additional headgear is required. Flight dates and times are revised by schedules. We will take your date request and check availability.
