Our Waco YMF-5C is a current production, FAA certified, modern aircraft built in Battlecreek, MI.

Pack your backpacks and get ready for an exciting fly-in adventure for 2 passengers to Catalina Island! You will see the Queen Mary and Long Beach as we head south toward the Island of Catalina.

Make a reservation for the the incredible zipline, a submarine ride, or take a long hike hrough the island's interior.

 This flying experience will show you Catalina from a perspective that has not been experienced since the 1940s. From our open cockpit biplane you will be transported back in time to the early days of aviation. We will meet at either the Fullerton Airport or the Catalina Airport, take some photos in front of the biplane, then we will take to the sky and head for the adventure of a lifetime!
