Do you long for the glory days of aviation? Then come fly the Waco YMF-5C Classic open cockpit biplane! Built in 2001, but from the same design as the 1930's original, this aircraft has been described as "art in the sky" and makes for the ideal sightseeing platform as you tour the sights in and around Las Vegas. The spacious front bench seat can accommodate you, and if you desire, one other special passenger, as the pilot in the back seat acts as your own personal tour guide over the city. Not only will you be flying a piece of history, you will be seeing our beautiful city from a vantage point that few can imagine.
Our 30 minute tour starts as we takeoff from Henderson Executive Airport and head east over Dutchman's Pass to fly over the historic town of Boulder City, which came into existence due to its close proximity to the Hoover Dam construction site. From there, we circle over Black Canyon and the Hoover Dam itself, still a marvel of construction, even though it was built back in the 1930's under the Hoover Administration. From there, we turn northwest to fly over the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, all the while admiring the unique geology of the Mojave dessert
As we veer to the West, you will see Lake Las Vegas, home of celebrities such as Celine Dion. As we transition on the south side of Las Vegas, you will have an unforgettable view of the Las Vegas Strip, with a beautiful backdrop of Red Rock State Park and Mount Charleston in the distance. For an extra bit of romance, ask for one of our sunset tours and watch the Las Vegas skyline come alive!
For an additional cost we can add aerobatics to your adventure, which will include, aileron rolls, barrel rolls and loops!
All too soon the tour is over, but your memories will last a lifetime. All flights feature an in-flight high definition video system that makes for a wonderful souvenir to show your friends. So what are you waiting for? Make your visit to Las Vegas unforgettable and be an open cockpit Barnstormer! Leather helmets and scarf provided!
