Fly a Warbird
Take a flight in an aircraft used by the US Army Air Forces to train pilots in World War II, at what was the Pinellas Army Airfield from 1941 to 1944.
Your instructor pilot will give you a flight briefing . The instructor will demonstrate taxi procedures enroute to the runway and show you how the "run up" is conducted to test magnetos and engine power. When the tower clears you for takeoff the instructor will demonstrate proper takeoff procedures and climb over Tampa Bay before turning toward the Gulf of Mexico.
Once clear of airport traffic the instructor pilot will demonstrate turns and other manuvers. If you want, your instructor will let you take the stick and try your hand at flying this classic warbird.
If you are not comfortable taking the stick, no problem....sit back and enjoy the ride and spectacular scenery of the white sand beaches below.
Your adventure flight can be video recorded and posted online for you to share with your friends. You can take home a memory card of your flight as well.
