DESCRIPTION OF BIPLANE RIDES
All rides listed here are available in all three biplane configuration. Our Stearman carries one passenger, the Waco UPF-7 Open Cockpit airplane carries two passengers in front of the pilot. The Cabin Waco carries three passengers. Weight limitation in the single is 200 lbs (passenger weight), in the two passenger airplanes the weight limitation is 350 lbs in the front cockpit. In the Cabin Waco (which carries up to three passengers) the weight limitation is 550 lbs for passengers. “All rides are priced the same regardless if you are flying in a single passenger, double passenger or triple passenger airplane. The engine time is identical and the fuel consumption is the same.
We are now operating only at Bremerton Airport. We have special emphasis on Wednesdays at Bremerton for our Warbird T-6 rides and our aerobatic flights in both the T6 and Stearmans. Regular scenic biplane flights are available 7 days a week by appointment when we are not away at an event ourselves. We love to fly!

* Please note on all Rides the following applies:
- Flights may be flown in reverse direction at pilot’s discretion if airport “flow” is reversed
- “All rides are based on two-person occupancy in the open cockpit biplanes. Total weight limitation of 350 pounds of passenger weight per flight.
- Rides in the Stearman Biplane, which is a Single Passenger Biplane, are the same price as a flight for two in the two passenger airplanes. (Same engine time and fuel are used.)
- Rides in the Cabin Waco are the same price for up to three passengers as long as 550 pounds of passenger weight is not surpassed. There is no additional charge for the third passenger!
- Approximate flight and taxi times are our best estimation. Actual times can vary depending upon which plane is flying (some are faster – some are slower) and prevailing head or tail winds. Also, the amount of time for taxi and run-up is variable depending upon how busy the airport is on a given day. We do our best!
- Please be aware that airport conditions are constantly changing. Although we try to keep as tight a schedule as possible, delays caused by refueling, takeoff and landing delays due to jet turbulence, etc are beyond our control. Although we’ll make every effort to be on time, it is not uncommon that by the mid-afternoon, we may be running as much as 30-45 minutes late due to these circumstances beyond our control.
All Bremerton Flights have an additional 9% sales tax.
