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. He let me sit in on the briefing during which he described the... More

Sounds like you not only found the perfect gift for the man who has everything but you also have his future perfect gift picked out, another flight with Stallion 51! We look forward to your return. Each flight is an unique experience, no two are alike, so your husband's next flight will be as exciting as his first, if not... More

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

Mike, I think you get the award for the most poetic review! You indeed have captured the romance of the Mustang and the magic of the Merlin. You are right, it is hard to put a price on an experience of a lifetime. We are glad that we were able to share the cockpit with you. Thank you for such... More

Im pleased to recommend this company company highly. I've never piloted a plane before and they taught me to do full aerobatic manoeuvres within one hour in the Texan T-6. Steve is a great pilot and trainer.

If you like WWII aircraft, if you like POWER, if you like SPEED, if you like flying, then Crazy Horse can't be beat! The pilots are very experienced and the ultimate professionals...I know because I'm professional pilot also. If you think you'd like to fly a Mustang then DON'T wait!

I was able to enjoy the Stallion 51 experience the week of Thanksgiving and couldn't have been more pleased. Weather conspired against a planned T-6 flight on Tuesday, but broke Wednesday afternoon for the scheduled hour flight in the Mustang. The weather challenges proved to be fortuitous, however, as it resulted in an unplanned two-plane flight with Crazy Horse 2.... More

I have tried for three months to write this review and have come to the conclusion that words are insufficient to describe my flight in Crazy Horse 2 on October 17. The P-51 has always held a special place in my imagination, but never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would get to fly in one, much... More

Ted, Thank you for your kind words, indeed it is hard to describe how awesome the P-51 Mustang is. The only way to appreciate its greatness is to fly it! Glad we had the opportunity to share greatness with you in the cockpit of Stallion 51's Mustang. KT Budde-Jones More

Ever since I took my wife Lori, to the EAA Oshkosh airshow, she has admired the P-51 Mustang. She would wake up early to watch the Mustangs takeoff. I started thinking what would be a memorable event for her 50th birthday. I contacted Stallion 51 and arranged for her flight in the P-51 Mustang. It was a complete surprise when... More

Thanks to the Stallion 51 dedicated team, Kissimmee is the only place in the world where you can fly a P-51 Mustang (actually a much rarer TF-51, and they've got two!) from the back seat with exactly the same controls as in the front one, where the instructor (Steve, in my case) will make you feel so comfortable that you...

If you are an airplane aficionado you owe it to yourself to go to Kissimmee and fly with Stallion51. It is a well-run, professional organization that is geared toward safety and a fantastic customer experience. Don't expect a passive Disney World type ride - you will be piloting the plane for much of the flight. I flew with John "Homer"... More

The experience at Stallion 51 is just that, excellent. I flew the T6 on Halloween with the best instructor ever, Steve Larmore. Included was a detailed pre flight briefing, one hour flight including barrel rolls, loops, stalls, cuban eight and even a little sight seeing, then a detailed post flight briefing using the on board video taken of your flight....
