Father's Day surprise!
I surprised my husband for Father's Day with a ride in a WWII fighter plane! They have a few models to choose from, we chose the AT-6 Texan which was used as a trainer for Navy fighter pilots. Check-in process was easy, just the usual waivers to sign. His pilot was Tom, who even let him take over and fly the plane for awhile! It was a 40 minute flight over the vineyards, Sonoma Raceway, and if it hadn't been for a fog bank at the coast they could have flown out to Tomales Bay to see the ocean. My husband loved it and declared it a wonderful Father's Day surprise.
The person who had flown just before my husband was a retired Captain who had last flown that type of plane

Such great fun!
We made reservations for Mothers Day morning for 8 people and we flew in two shifts. Everyone there was pleasant and nice and helped us with pictures. The flight was super fun - and a bit chilly so don't go in sandals! We would definitely do it again.

Riding in a P-51 Mustang was a dream come true for my husband....we celebrated his 75th birthday by showing up for a surprise ride on one. It was unforgettable...pilot was incredibly knowledgeable and experienced....not stunts or scary-fun moments..which my husband would have loved...a pretty conservative ride.

From Scared to Fly to Loving it!
I have flown in the biplanes here at three times and would go again anytime. The planes are super sweet and the views are stunning, everything from vineyards to ocean views and flying over the marshlands. Plus, you get to wear the flying cap with sunglasses and look really cool. The first time I went up it was unplanned and I was very nervous about an open cockpit, but I enjoyed it so much. I highly recommend going up for longer than you plan as it's over way too fast, and if you are into it try the aerobatics flight for extra fun.

Spectacular Way to See Napa & Sonoma
I don't exactly love flying, but this open cockpit flight in a vintage WW II aircraft was unbelievable. So fun, calm, surreal, amazing in every way. The staff are very nice and easy to work with. Such a great experience. Will definitely do it again!

Do it and then do it again!
Unbelievable way to see Sonoma and Napa valleys, The pilot will give you as much of a ride as your Dramamine can stand, dives, rolls and just level if you chose, J was ready to do it again!

P40 Flight of awesome privilege
Part of planning our US trip was to have a flight in the P40, based in Sonoma. This is a plane I have always admired since I was young. Pilot extraordinaire Chris was well versed on the history of his plane and his dedication and abilitiy to preserve, fly and share this Warbird is obvious. Pre flight done, engine was fired and then take off in this awesome aircraft. Unfortunately fog prevented a trip to the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco but Chris flew a wonderful trip around the coast and the vast Sonoma area. The Kittyhawk was a joy to fly in and it was an absolute privilege to be in this historic aircraft. It flew so well and I enjoyed every minute of

Definitely worth every single penny!!

What a fun flight!
A fantastic fun Biplane flight on a beautiful Sonoma day! We choose the "Spires of the City" flight with Aerobatics. A great way to see San Fran and the Golden Gate Bridge.
Fantastic views and the aerobatics were awesome! Chris is a great pilot and gave us a great ride!
