Your Chance to Fly a Legend!
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.
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.
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.

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
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.
