Thank you sooo much for helping make my husbands dreams come true! He loves bi-planes and pieces of history! This was the best Fathers Day gift I could have ever given him! Tim and Peggy are both great and we enjoyed chatting with Peggy while Chris and Tim were flying!

Tim and Peggy were super nice. Peggy escorted me to the plane and got me ready for the flight. I had a flight in Tim's 1947 PT-17. Tim was very informative about the area we flew over and how to operate the plane. I got to fly while we were airborne. What an experience!

If you come to Central Florida, you have to see it by air. Preston Aviation offers rides in a vintage WW II Sternman Bi-plane that is fantastic. 30 minutes of the coolest thing you will do, you have to try it!

I did close to an hour and a half with Tim in the Stearman and though I have time in a variety of planes (including my own) this was the icing on the cake. I don't think there could be a better experience than flying in a vintage biplane with a 10,000 plus hour certified flight
