I'm not a pilot but I have piloted a Cessna on such a "One Day Try It" deal. I've done all sorts of roller coaster rides as well. But nothing of this compares to FLYING A MUSTANG. This plane is an historic masterpiece and it's already a privilege to sit inside one. Flying it is like driving a Formula 1... More

JP. Like you, others have said that the experience of taking the controls of our P-51 Mustang, is "PRICELESS". Glad you thought so as well. Enjoy the video of your experience with us, your friends will envy you forever until they also fly with Stallion 51! Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. KT Budde-Jones More

I had the opportunity to take my 93-year-old father to Stallion 51 to fly the P 51. He flew the P 51 in the Pacific off of Iwo Jima and had not flown in a P 51 since 1949. The chance to fly in the Mustang again was not just checking off something from a bucket list but a chance... More

Cameron Family: It was our honor to share the cockpit with Dick. It is a thrill for us at Stallion 51 to have veterans fly with us, especially one who had flown the Mustang! There is nothing like hearing about history from someone who made it. We shared Dick's interview on FOX news on our Facebook page and website. Thank... More

Wether you are a pilot with a few hours or someone fascinated with aviation, the instructor pilots at Stallion 51 will give you the opportunity to learn and experience what it is like to fly their high performance aircraft. For me I learned some basic techniques to recover from unusual attitudes like extreme wing overs, rolls, loops, and accelerated stalls.... More

Sky King: Flying with Stallion 51 truly is much more than a ride. Whether you re flying in one of our dual cockpit-dual control Mustangs or our T-6 Texan or our modified L-39 TurboJet; you are an active participant in your flying adventure- taking the controls of the aircraft. We hope you come back for more flying fun. KT Budde-Jones More

A flight in a Mustang had been a dream since my youth. I watched the war birds being ferried, at low altitude, over our home during WW2. I wondered what those pilots felt controlling the P-51’s. Now I know! I am now in my late 70’s. I have a commercial pilot’s license, but have not flown for 29 years, except... More

I took a one hour flight in Crazy Horse 2 which has to be one of the best turned-out aircraft around - those guys do a great job. Well done to Greg and crew! Even if you just like planes and want to go see some hot stuff then a hour in the flight hangar is reward enough. The Stallion... More

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.

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
