Flying the Boeing Stearman

stearmanDuring my recent stay in Florida I was looking to do some local flying. Being located in Haines City I drove first to Lakeland Linder Regional Airport in Lakeland, FL to visit the Sun ‘N Fun airmuseum to see the place were every year the well known Sun ’n Fun airshow takes place ( Sun ’n Fun ). On the way we past by in Winter Haven an airport where we saw seaplanes making circuits on the nearby lake. Interesting!! Coming back from Kissimmee we stopped at the airport to ask for the possibility to fly an airplane. We came in contact with Peggy from Preston Aviation who offers training and flights in Piper Cub and Boeing Stearman. This seemed to me an unique possibility to fly a Boeing Stearman so  I decided to take this opportunity. Some pictures are found on photo’s .

The flight was an fantastic experience and is certainly to recommend. The service offered was absolute excellent.

I could fly the major part of the fight myself with Tim, the owner and CFI. You can find more on Preston Aviation .
