About This Experience

General Information hide

Take in the magnificent sights of the Sonoma Valley and experience the incredible sensation of flying in a beautifully restored North American SNJ-4 “Texan” Warbird. This 20 minute vintage aircraft flight will give you the opportunity to learn how fighter pilots of the 1940s trained.

Before this amazing war plane ride begins, you’ll meet with your pilot at the Sonoma Valley Airport, who will go over the history and functionality of this vintage aircraft. After you’ve been fully briefed, you’ll climb on to the plane to begin your flight into a bygone era. Once in the air, you may even have the opportunity to take over the controls and actually fly this vintage World War II Plane!

Whether you choose to sit back and simply enjoy this scenic flight over Sonoma, choose to try your hand at flying a historic aircraft, or request that your pilot perform a few precision aerobatics, including loops and rolls, this vintage aircraft experience is an unforgettable gift for anyone with a sense of history and adventure.
