Classic Biplane Tours' certified, experienced pilots captain trekkers on a 20-mile Barnstormer journey along the glistening Ohio River in a retooled version of an original 1935 Waco YMF. A half-hour preflight session briefs visitors before granting them a chance to ask questions, snap pictures of the aircraft, and charm pilots with their best imitation of a flight attendant asking passengers to return seats to an upright position.

After strapping on headphones boasting a voice-activated microphone for communication with pilots and fellow participants, up to two riders nestle side by side in the biplane's open cockpit and ascend into the skies for a voyage over the stunning landscapes of Twelve Mile Island, Jeffersonville, Indiana, and Prospect, Kentucky. Upon landing, Classic Biplane Tours' aviation team bestows participants with certificates deeming them qualified Barnstormers and competent traffic reporters.

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.
