The Deal

  • $85 for 20-minute Barnstormer biplane tour of Louisville (a $175 value)

Nestled inside the open cockpit of a fire-engine-red biplane, passengers bid farewell to solid ground and soar above downtown Louisville. Professional pilots circle city skyscrapers and hover above Churchill Downs, pausing only to share topographical savvy or give directions to passing geese. Biplanes trace the Ohio River to the historical water tower, slicing through 30 miles of cloudbanks in 20 minutes.

Classic Biplane Tours

Classic Biplane Tours' certified pilots helm modern versions of the 1935 Waco YMF, as they trace premapped and custom routes through the sky. Each pilot possesses years of professional flight experience, whether working as a missionary pilot, corporate pilot, or commercial pilot, and cheerfully shares savvy knowledge of the skyways throughout each flight via voice-activated headphones and microphones. Once safely returned to earth, passengers are bestowed certificates that designate them as qualified barnstormers, which budding aviators can then proudly display at home or use to legally commandeer an eagle.

In a Nutshell

Certified pilots helm fire-engine-red biplanes to circle downtown Louisville, Churchill Downs, and Ohio River
