The planes have been beautifully restored, but the real gem are the people who care and work on them. They will always have a moment to tell you about the history of the aircraft.

It’s more about their height and ability to manage the controls. Age isn’t a criteria. To be able to see properly, I’d say 4’8” and up. And probably around the ages of 6+ can follow the controls
