A dream came true for me last week - and I can't imagine a better run organization to provide the means to do it. From the facility itself with its spotless hangar and briefing room. To the friendly staff, every one of them professionals. And finally, to the beautiful airplanes. A person could not ask for anything better. Lastly, thank... More

Don't stop with the P-51, go ahead and fly the L-39 too! Hats off to the great folks at S51 for providing a unique and valuable experience, and to "Homer" for the best two hours of dual instruction possible.

I want to thank Steve Larmore for a very enjoyable hour of flying.I went with my son a retired F-14 flyer who was going to fly the TF-51. Upon arrival I spotted a T-6 and mentioned it was my primary trainer in the USAF in 1949. The P-51 instructor mentioned that it would be great if father/son flew formation.The T-6... More

Renaud; 12000 hours of flight time and we could still make your hour with us flying the Mustang special! That is great to hear. That just proves how special flying the Mustang with Stallion 51 is; whether seasoned professional or "rookie" it is a flight of a lifetime. So glad we could make your flight memorable.

How can something as awesome as having a WWII aircraft at your command get better? By having the professional know how and the right instructors in place all the time. My dad and myself decided to check off an item on the bucket lists, flying a WWII era warbird. The TF-51, a modified P-51, fit the bill perfectly! Besides bragging... More

What better way to celebrate Father's Day than a father/son formation flight in our dual cockpit-dual control Mustangs! So glad we could fulfill both of your Bucket List wishes. Not only do you have bragging rights but the DVD of the flights to prove it! It was our pleasure to share the cockpits with you both. KT Budde-Jones. More

Flying the P-51 was terrific. The day began with a briefing on the activities to be undertaken, and how each of them would unfold. The pilot, John "Homer" Black was an ex Air Force F-15 pilot and he knew his stuff. No worries about safety as Homer explained all the procedures. He has had 358 sorties in the P-51, now... More

Bob, Glad your Mustang "sortie" with Homer was fun and exhilarating. To fly in a Mustang is special, to take the controls of a Mustang is incredible, to fly in formation with another Mustang is awesome. Glad you had such a great experience with Stallion 51. We look forward to sharing the cockpit with you again. KT Budde-Jones More

Being a war bird fan for many, many years now, flying in the Mustang was one of those things that was always at the top of my list. Call it a "bucket list" a "to do" list, whatever, the Mustang was always at the top. Then I learned about the Stallion 51 organization and my dream all of a sudden... More

While I haven't wanted to get my pilot's license, I have always been interested in seeing how the P-51 felt. My Dad was a Mustang pilot in WWII, flying 49 missions out of England, and I have been attending his fighter group reunions for a few years. I mentioned Stallion 51 to one of my friends at a reunion, whose... More

"Frito" We had fun with you as well, sharing the cockpit of one of our dual control Mustangs. You may have walked into Stallion 51 "pushing 80" but you walked out a young man after your flight in the P-51. We look forward to your return. KT Budde-Jones More
