Fly a Boeing Stearman for 30mins! Take a Sydney ride in America's World War II military trainer in civilian comfort! The Stearman bi-plane is an aviational classic. Onwards and upwards, see the Blue Mountains, Warragamba Dam and Lake Burragorang all at a great price - what more excuse do you need??
Upon arrival at the hangar, you will meet your pilot and ground staff for the day and be shown around the Boeing Stearman bi-plane prior to your scenic flight (with plenty of time for photos) and safety aspects will be explained.
Take your seat in the front of the aircraft, strap yourself in with reassurance from the crew, and your pilot will climb in behind you. You're off on a Stearman Scenic Flight over the amazing sights of greater Sydney.
You have communication with your pilot for the duration of the flight and he will make the journey as enjoyable as possible for you pointing out areas of interest as you sit back and watch the world fly past. In the manner of Neil Armstrong, who learnt to fly in this same model), you'll reach awesome heights on the 220hp Continental radial engine.
From Camden you'll reach comfortable heights and low levels within sight of Warragamba Dam, Lake Burragorang and the Blue Mountains. When you're up for it and you've seen so much already, your pilot will treat you to a low-altitude cruise along the beautiful Nepean River.
