Together We Fly

Your love for flying is personal, but the freedom of flight is universal. Make some memories.

Flight Experience

Here is your rare opportunity to fly in an authentic Ford Tri-Motor, America’s first mass-produced airliner.

Each flight experience is approximately 30 minutes, of which about 15 minutes will be in the air. You will need to be seated while the Ford Tri-Motor is airborne; however, each seat is located next to a window.
