Experience the Thrill of Time Travel...

… in a vintage 1941 Boeing Stearman - A WWII Training Aircraft

… out of Historic Stanton Airfield - A WWII Training Base

(Stanton, MN is less than an hour drive from Minneapolis/St. Paul AND Rochester, conveniently located between Northfield and Cannon Falls)

This is REAL flying like you’ve never known before:

When you climb aboard this beautifully crafted machine of history …

When you hear the great radial engine come to life in a burst of oily smoke  …

When you feel the rush of air wash over you from the giant wooden prop …

… you’ll completely forget you’re in the 21st century.


Imagine it's the 1940's and you're a student pilot, training at Historic Stanton Airfield.  It's your first flight. The instructor is at the controls - this initial ride is strictly for fun.  There’s no pressure.  That comes later.

Now you can can experience the thrill, anxiety, joy, and a whole mix of other emotions those pilot candidates felt when learning to fly.  The only emotion we can’t duplicate is the raw fear of knowing what lies at the end of pilot training … an assignment to somewhere in the Pacific or European theaters of war.


"A fantastic ride!  Exhilarating!" Mr. Peltier (retired pilot) on his 80th birthday
