I have been flying for over 40 years in both general aviation and airline aircraft. This experience is without a doubt the most memorable and enjoyable experience I have ever had. The aircraft was in pristine condition, the facility immaculate and my instructor pilot was excellent, very knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend this experience.

Dreaming this for a long time, I got to fly the TF-51 Mustang with instructor Steve Larmore. Simply put, this was the best day of my life. I'm an Aviation enthusiast and flying such a legendary airplane was out of this world. Steve and the whole team at Stallion51 made me feel very welcome, Steve explained in details all the... More

Flying with Stallion 51 is an exhilarating, energising, incredible experience. Of course it is, why wouldn't it be!? I thought I'd tell you about the things that aren't exactly common knowledge. First of all getting to Stallion 51 didn't exactly go to plan. I followed a standard car GPS which took me to the wrong side of the airfield. The... More

Thanks to Steve Larmore the flight was a true adventure. The Mustang performed better than expected and was a real joy to fly. Steve let me do far more than I could imagine and guided me through every exercise in a perfect way. Wish I had more money, I would have bought one.

I had the opportunity to ride with John "Homer" Black on December 9th for his 600th Mustang flight, and my first! The ride was a 30th birthday gift from my wife, and I don't know how she'll ever follow it up. As a child growing up, flying in an old war bird is a dream. To see the immaculately maintained...

As a very old fighter pilot who has not been upside down since 1992, the flight was beyond great fun. To be allowed to do what you like with the A/C was beyond anything I had hoped for. Go fly it while there is still a where are you to do it. History does not stand still

I was able to experience Stallion 51 and fly the Texan -- and it was incredible. A buddy of mine with a Single Engine License flew the Mustang -- and Steve and I flew the Texan. We all were able to link up in formation before breaking off for a series of acrobatic moves. As a first time pilot -... More

There is only one thing better than taking an orientation flight with Stallion 51, it is flying a formation flight at Stallion 51 with a friend to share the experience. Glad you enjoyed the flights and have the video to relive the fun you had. We look forward to sharing the cockpit the you again. KT Budde-Jones More

I highly recommend visiting the highly professional and friendly crew of Stallion 51. The chance to actually fly a piece of America's history was the ultimate honor to commemorate our aviator heroes. Thanks to the staff, pilots and mechanics of Stallion 51, these memories live on.

The sound of a Merlin engine gives me chills ! It's a powerful and invigorating sound that tells me a great flight awaits the passenger and pilot. My husbands sixth flight with Lee Lauderback was as thrilling and exciting as his first one back in 1994. Stallion 51 offers an hour briefing, an hour flight and then an hour de-briefing... More

Bravo! I can’t give Stallion 51 and Steve Larmore enough kudos. After being out of the cockpit for 16 years I decided it was time to get into the T-6. After the start up of the big P&W radial, taxi out, and take-off - a smile was glued on my face for the next hour. Basic manuevers, rolls of all... More

So glad you had a great time at the controls of Stallion 51's T-6 Texan. The Texan is like a draft horse doing dressage, once she is in the air she is graceful and responsive. We look forward to sharing the cockpit with you again. You are correct, "Nothing sounds like big and round". KT Budde-Jones More
