| Open cockpit, with only blue skies above you
and the throaty roar of a radial engine up front, this is a motorcycle
ride on steroids. Everyone loves their Stearman ride, even if they are nervous at first. It's windy, fun,
and nostalgic, with incredible visuals.
Availability is limited. Be patient, ask early: It's worth the wait. $80 donation which helps support the Fly-In.
|Strap on a reserve parachute, sign a waiver, then ride to altitude on an airplane full of happy skydivers. You'll feel like a Top Gun on the way to the jump plane. Watch the skydivers' amazingly fast exit, and now it's only you and the jump pilot left onboard to follow the jumpers two miles downhill.|
|There are no commercial balloon rides at the Fly-In. Many of the balloonists give their faithful crews long overdue rides. Offer to help a balloonist with crewing (which requires little experience but a strong back), and you might get lucky. Crewing is fun, even if your feet never leave the ground.|
