Overview

Experience the magic of flight as you take a trip back in time in our 1942 Waco to when flying was as much about enjoying the journey as it was about arriving at your destination in style. Enjoy flying in an open cockpit biplane around Hood River and the Columbia River Gorge, for a vintage flying experience for 2 passengers. Cessna 182 option also available for a family of 3.

Sailing over the river is one thing, but soaring over it is another. Stunning views out of a stunning aircraft. Highly recommend it.

The Hood River Valley is absolutely beautiful. Seeing the scenery not only from the air, but in an open cockpit biplane was unparalleled. The airplane was immaculate, the prices were reasonable, and the pilot I flew with was very knowledgable and proficient. Thanks again TacAero!

Regarding things to do in the Hood River area, nothing beats the thrill of a bird's eye view ride in a plane to view the Columbia Gorge and nearby Mt. Hood. My wife and I opted for Waco biplane instead of an enclosed plane. What...More
