Open Cockpit Bi-Plane Rides
Soar through yesteryear in an old fashioned Waco Biplane! Flying in an open cockpit Biplane is like going for a ride on a motorcycle. On warm days, shorts and t-shirts are fine, but when it’s chilly out, you may want a jacket. You will have some protection from the elements in the front cockpit behind a small windscreen, much like a convertible in the sky! The Waco Biplane carries two passengers in the front seat, but there is a combined weight limit of 400 lbs. and the seat is 32″ wide. Leather helmets, goggles and silk scarves are available for photos and headsets will be worn during the flight for hearing protection and narrative from the pilot. All ages are welcome, but some dexterity is required to climb into the airplane. We will do our best to accommodate everyone.
