Helmet & Goggles Biplane Rides Adventures offers flights over the historic Virginia countryside in a vintage open-cockpit Stearman. Our Boeing PT-17 was actually used to train aviation cadets during WWII and has been completely restored and updated with the latest technology. It is meticulously maintained and regularly inspected to rigorous FAA standards.
Our Chief Pilot has flown over 25,000 hours and was a check-captain for a major US airline. He loves sharing his passion for aviation and especially introducing or reconnecting people to a golden era of flying and the sights and sounds of yesteryear few have experienced. Think of this as riding a motorcycle with wings! This is an amazing experience you will never forget!
