You can climb aboard one of the first mass-produced airliners and step back in time to aviation’s golden age. A flight on a Ford Tri-Motor is a flight back to an era where air travel was considered a luxury and you too can experience the “Tin Goose” on a short flight for only $75.00.

True flight enthusiasts can go into the wild blue yonder in a historic B-25 Bomber for only $400.

For those with more limited budgets, there will be helicopter rides for $35 and airplane rides for $20.
