You know how sometimes you look forward to something but when you get there it's not what you thought. Well that not true here! This flight was better than the dream and an experience I'll be telling every one about for a long time to come. If you only do one thing -do this!

My flight today was just amazing! You must go there and experience it yourself! Sitting in that cockpit and actually being in full control of the aircraft is incredible! I have never flown a plane before but always dreamed to fly a P-51! I have to thank Homer for the excellent briefings! He did a great job in telling you... More

I was able to fulfil a dream of flying the P-51 for my 65th birthday and it was a wonderful experience and beyond my expectations-I would love to do it again.

Me and my father decided to fly a one hour, two ship, sortie with the Mustangs for my fathers 70 years birthday. We were met by two very professional pilots who after gaging our experience had us strap into one Mustang each and go for a two ship flight. Both my father and I have about 800 hours of flight...

Having wanted to fly both a Warbird and Military Jet for a long time. I accomplished both ambitions at Stallion 51, in November 2013 with a one hour flight in the TF-51 Mustang "Crazy Horse" and the following day a flight in the Albatross L39 Turbofan jet. All the staff at Stallion 51 were all very friendly and welcoming. Prior... More

On January 16, I had the happy opportunity to fulfill a life-long dream, a P-51 Mustang flight! (Technically, it is a TF-51D.) If you love airplanes, history, American ingenuity, or any combination of these then a visit to Stallion 51 for a Mustang ride belongs at the top of your bucket list. I opted for the one-hour orientation flight and... More

My sons presented me with a T-6 flight with stallion 51 on 31 Dec 2013. I've been in aviation maintenance (avionics) all my life but never had the chance to experience the thrills that Steve gave me in the T-6. His experience and coaching made me feel like a high-hour "stick". Everyone at Stallion 51 was friendly and warm. Really... More

What an experience! A full Mustang check out, multiple days and multiple sorties. The discipline and professionalism displayed by the staff is equal to the training I received as a military aviator. The ground school is in depth with all systems covered in detail and the flight training academics are second-to-none with all regimes of the P-51 flight envelope explored.... More
