30 Minute Aerobatic Ride: $450

This is the thrill ride for those more daring passengers who want to experience what it is like to zoom through the sky while diving and climbing, rolling and looping in the Stearman. Just like the aerial dog fights from WWI and WWII. For this flight you will don a safety parachute and be properly briefed before being securely strapped into the seat. After climbing to a safe altitude, your pilot will usually begin by demonstrating a barrel roll just to get you oriented to aerobatics, Then he will take you through several other maneuvers one by one while explaining each maneuver in between. Some of the maneuvers you can expect to do are rolls, loops, Cuban 8, hammer head stall, split – S, spins and wing overs. As time permits, additional maneuvers can be performed. If you like the pilot can even combine maneuvers and link them together for an exciting finale. Again, the ride is all about the customer having a good time, so the flight routine can be modified in intensity level up or down to suit the customer’s desires. Whether you choose to do more aerobatics or less is your choice. The view is spectacular from a biplane at 3000 feet so don’t pass up this opportunity of a lifetime! (Check out the video page for a sample of the aerobatic flight!)
