Wow! What a fun experience! My son and I went up for a 15 minute ride! I felt like I was back in the day! And it was a memory that I have with my son that I'll never forget. The pilot flew us all around - we had great views of the mountains and the surrounding area. I'm so... More

The best thing about my flight was definitely the pilot Tom. He is knowledgable about his plane and it's history as well as the areas we overflew. I let him know that I was a student pilot about to take my tests and he shared quite a lot of good flying tips. If you want to know more about Palm... More

I really do not like heights! But I challenged myself to take a flight in this wonderful antique plane! What an experience! Kent was excellent and very patient getting us in and out of the plane!

Start off by saying this is an informal (in a GOOD way) operation. No big office staff or signing of waivers or half-hour safety orientation or anything like that. We just met Kent at the airplane and away we flew. My son and I did the one-hour flight and really loved it. Best part was flying along the mountains. Palm... More

Always wanted to ride in a biplane and found this opportunity. Interesting to see how pilot manipulates plane to see when taxi"ing and about to land.

I could feel the sand from the wind hitting my face. Very bumpy ride. Very unpleasant to fly in sandy condition. Aerial tram was much better and only $15 dollars for the whole day.

What an amazing ride! I thought I knew a lot about the Palm Springs area but you get such a greater perspective from high up! Seeing how many golf courses there truly are here in the valley and their beauty, how can you not want to play that game? Thirty Five minute ride which is perfect. The take off is... More

This is a great outing, in an open cockpit Stearman bi-plane, 1 (or 2) passengers up front, the pilot in the back. A unique way to see Palm Springs and surrounding area.

If you've ever seen "Out of Africa" or North by Northwest" this is your opportunity to live the experience. A 1940's Stuerman bi-plane with a professional pilot and you or your loved one. The fee is for the time, not per-person. 30 minutes or 60 minutes you fly like before in an open cockpit plane in front of the pilot,... More
