DC-3 / C-47 Flying Adventure

Your Chance to Fly a Legend!

The Adventure

Fly a legendary airliner. The Douglas DC-3 (also known as the C-47 Skytrain) is the plane that made air travel popular. For pilots this isn't just a ride. It's a chance for you to take off, fly and land a piece of aviation history. You'll be the one in the pilot's seat. For non-pilots, it’s an incredible opportunity to experience history in the air.

Each introductory flight experience begins with a short briefing. Your flight instructor will cover starting, taxi, takeoffs, landings, checklists, and emergency procedures. Before you know it, you'll be ready to taxi an incredibly large multi-engine tailwheel airplane.

How large is large? The DC-3's wingspan is almost 100 ft. The plane can carry over 820 gallons of fuel and each engine oil tank holds almost 30 gallons of oil. On takeoff, she can produce over 2400 Horsepower. The big girl is capable of carrying almost 5000 pounds of anything that will fit through the door and yet she needs just 3000 feet of runway. We should warn you. Taking off is not as easy as it looks. (Don't worry. An FAA-certified instructor will be sitting in the co-pilot seat to talk you through it.) Once airborne, where you go and what you do is pretty much up to you. Practice approaches, take-offs or landings or simply enjoy the view from a DC-3.

Your Instructor

You will fly with an FAA-certified DC-3 pilot and instructor. Choose to complete an introductory one-hour flight or extend your flight time.

Complete Pilot-In-Command and Second-In-Command training is available. If you’re a pilot interested in getting your PIC/SIC Type Rating in a DC-3 (C-47), contact Incredible Adventures for detailed pricing.

Locations:

DC-3 flights are now available in Atlanta, Georgia and Riverside, California.

Coming Soon: Punta Gorda Airport in Charlotte County, Florida, on the state’s Gulf Coast, between Sarasota and Fort Myers.

DC-3 SIC Training

Pilots Receive Stick Time – Dual Instruction

Fly a DC-3 with an FAA-certified flight instructor. Choose a one hour or two-hour orientation flight and you will get to experience takeoffs and landings, approaches, taxiing and more. Only a basic pilot’s license is required.

Note: Tailwheel and multi-engine time is not required for familiarization flights, but in order to obtain an SIC (Second-In-Command) or PIC (Pilot-In-Command) endorsement, you’ll need to first have a multi-engine rating. It is recommended you obtain a tailwheel endorsement in a smaller plane to reduce the amount of time necessary to obtain your SIC or PIC rating.



A Plane By Any Other Name...

World War II veterans and historians will remember the DC-3 as the C-47 "Skytrain". The military version of this incredible aircraft was used by Allied Forces to transport troops and supplies around the world. The plane nicknamed "the Gooney Bird" quickly earned a reputation as a reliable workhorse, capable of flying anywhere in any weather. The US Navy referred to the plane as the R4D and the British called her the Dakota. Still others called her the Skytrooper. By any name, she's an incredible plane.
