Your Chance to Fly a WWII Legend!
Learn to fly a rare two-seat P-40 Warhawk near Orlando. Our dual-cockpit, dual-control Curtis TP-40 N is one of only five such aircraft still in existence. Only about 40 of the two-seat trainer versions of the P-40 were manufactured.
No pilot’s license is required to schedule a flight in “American Dream”.
The P-40 is a World War II legend made famous by the First American Volunteer Group, better known as the “Flying Tigers”, who took to the sky in shark-faced fighters. American pilots flying the P-40 battled the Japanese at Pearl Harbor. Although she primarily served as a training aircraft, “American Dream” is a true war hero, with two confirmed “kills” and one unconfirmed “kill”.
The single-engine P-40 Warhawk made its debut in 1939 and was one of the premier aircraft flown by Allied Forces in World War II. Some know the P-40 as the “Tomahawk” or “Kittyhawk”.
