The Vintage Airplane

The airplane is a 1943 Stinson V-77, commonly called the Gullwing , due to the unusual design of the wing. It was made for the British military by the Stinson aircraft company under license to the Vultee Aircraft Company from the design of the 1938 Stinson Reliant SR-10. There were only 500 manufactured and all were sent to England during WW ll. Of those only 350 returned after the war. Today there are only about 100 registered in the United States. It is estimated that only about 20 are still actively flying today. You are more likely to see one in an aviation museum than at an airport. 

Vintage or Classic airplanes are those manufactured before the modern era of aviation. Most associations dealing with this category of aircraft require them to have been manufactured prior to the 1950's. Airplanes were made differently at that time. This airplane can be completely loaded with fuel, Pilot, 4 passengers, luggage, and still be under its maximum weight limit. Not so with the airplanes made today.

The airplane is a fully aerobatic airplane, which is unusual for a passenger airplane. This is truly a bucket list ride for pilots and non pilots alike.

Your Captain

My experience as a pilot ranges from Certified Flight Instructor to Airline Captain (Ret). Now I fly for the pure love of flying. Flying a vintage airplane is my favorite. When flying into an airport, the airplane is a people magnet. Very few people know exactly what type airplane it is as there are so few flying today. 
My real goal is to share the airplane with as many people as possible by offering rides in BIG RED. Hopefully this will allow them to see aviation as I have seen it and am seeing it now.
I get a real rush from watching the faces, especially the kids, when we listen to the sounds of the engine and the wind as it passes us by.
