WHAT'S NEW: UPDATED 2/24/2024
We are pleased to report that Sweet Caroline, our beloved Stearman, is back together and has successfully completed all of her maintenance inspections! We even had a good weather day to take her up for her FAA required post-annual inspection maintenance test flight. She is running beautifully and we are excited to begin flying in the Spring when it warms up. Please be patient with Spring bookings, as it can be a fairly gusty/bumpy time of year to fly, and we want you to get the most enjoyment from your time with us. Keep checking this page for updates and be sure to check out the FAQ page for more information.
