After spending 1000 hours flying combat in Vietnam and then not climbing into a plane for 40 years it was incredible to fly with Stallion 51. Their professionalism and attention to detail was outstanding. The flight instructor was very encouraging despite how rusty my flying skills were. It was an experience I will never forget, to be free and barrel... More

Some events in life become the standard by which others are judged. Taking an hour ride in a Mustang is one of those. An all-sensory experience that puts one in aw of the shoulders upon which we are standing. To imagine being a fresh faced 20 year old taking to the skies in such a machine just 40 years after...

I got to fly with the owner Mr. Lee Lauderback and it was incredible. I thought he would fly the aircraft and show me what it could do; I was very wrong. Their add states "you will fly 90% of the time” and they meant it. I had control of the aircraft almost immediately: taxing to the runway. Right after... More

My son and I each took a flight on Stallion's T6 Texan, each of us spending an hour in the sky with Steve Larmore, and each of us with different expectations. My son wanted all the aerobatics Steve could talk him through. On the other hand, I wanted to have a go at flying a vintage plane with some maneuvers... More

My husband was a loadmaster in the AF and retired about 15 years ago. He is the most avid non-pilot flyer I know and I knew he would love this experience. The customer service was amazing, so friendly and helpful. We were able to walk through the hangars and take pictures of the beautiful Mustangs. The entire staff was knowledgable... More

Had a great flight in the AT-6 with Steve. He is an excellent instructor and knows the airplane very, very well.
