Take to the skies in a legendary Boeing PT-17 Stearman and experience the joy of flight as it was at the turn of the 20th century. Enjoy magnificent views of Melbourne and Port Philip Bay and take a breath of fresh air while you take in the scenery of the Yarra Valley.
Step back in time to the bygone era of flight in an open cockpit biplane. After being appropriately fitted out with vintage flying gear including a leather jacket, helmet, goggles and a scarf, climb aboard a fully restored Boeing Stearman for the flight of a lifetime. But this is not just any ordinary Stearman, the plane has been modified with the Pratt & Whitney R-985 Radial engine producing 450hp, more than twice the power of the original Boeing Stearmans! Enjoy a scenic journey over the Yarra Valley's iconic rolling hills and expanse of vineyards and take in breathtaking views of Melbourne and Port Philip Bay. Your friends and family are more than welcome to attend and take photos as you prepare for lift off. While they may not see all of the flight, they will be able to see you get strapped in before waving you goodbye and watching you take off and land. If you have any particular sights you wish to see on the flight, kindly let the pilot know beforehand.
