I had a wonderful experience flying Crazy Horse, "Homer" was a great instructor. He made me feel very comfortable with the aircraft did a great job talking me through the maneuvers. I hope I get a chance to fly with him again one day.

Can't say enough about our 51st anniversary flight in the famous dual control P51 Mustangs. Its a memory that never goes away.

The ride of a lifetime. I've been waiting for a long time to do this flight. Ever since I made that Airfix model when I was a young lad, but never thought then that I would actually be able to see and fly the real thing. Last year I flew a Spitfire, another dream flight, this year the Mustang. Steve... More

What a FANTASTIC experience. John Posson and Steve Larmore provided us with the ride of our lives in Crazy Horse and Crazy Horse 2. I visited with my Cousin and we enjoyed a two ship flight. Close formation flying, solo aerobatics and an overhead break to finish. Friendly, very professional and polished service. Pilots who obviously love flying the aircraft... More

My sons gave me a gift certificate to Stallion 51 for the P-51. Unfortunately the cockpit space was too limited for me. I couldn't bend enough to sit comfortably. So, the Texan was brought it and what a ride it was. Low ceilings prevented vertical aerobatics, but what we did was phenomenal. The pilot let me do the flying, guiding... More
