Waldo is pleased to continue offering his unique biplane ride experiences! Friends and family can ride together, up to 4 passengers, in his New Standard D-25 for a 15 minute joyride. A single guest can also fly his Stearman biplane, with dual controls, for 30 minutes.
The exciting news this season is Waldo’s Travel Air E-4000, which he has been restoring the past 7 years, should make its appearance in the Spring 2018 for ride operations.
