An amazing experience from the get go, Stallion 51 is the epitome of a professional, polished and positive presentation. My flight arrangement was easily made online, with a couple of followup phone calls to hammer out the finer details, all... More

I am an active remote control airplane pilot. I have a particular love for the P-51. On a recent visit to Florida, I made arrangements with Stallion 51 to go for... More

Since my days as a young kid I have always had a great interest in aircraft and aviation. I have never brought it to the level of getting my own pilot licence, but over the years i have some hours flying in small aircraft.

My husband's Christmas present this year was a flying lesson from Stallion 51. He was very excited (if a little apprehensive) as he has never had a flying lesson in his life - nor has he indicated that he wanted one! Steve, the instructor, was a dream.

The older I get, the more taken I am with the romance of airplanes from another era and in particular, those that represent the zenith of piston engine development. Most certainly, the P-51 seems to be at the top of the list for those who love in-line aircraft engines. For those enthusiasts with an ear for this sort of thing,... More
