“A great experience for pilots and non pilots who love P51's”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

This was my second flight with Stallion51 flying Crazy Horse one of their TF-51 dual cockpit 51's. It is a great priviledge to have the chance to fly a P51, and it gave me a greater apprecitation for those that took this airplane into battle.
Having been in aviation for my whole career I can say that Stallion51 is a first class operation. It is obvious that they take great care of their aircraft and customers. The experience is tailored to what you'd like to do in the air, from mild to aerobatics. The two gentleman I flew with where both excellent and made the experience that much better.
I can't wait to go back and fly again.

Tillyseattle; We are so glad you returned for another Mustang flight with Stallion 51. It is the ultimate compliment to us that you not only enjoyed your first flight with us but enjoyed it so much you came back for another hands-on flight in the P-51 with Stallion 51. How extraordinary that you experienced a formation flight with other Mustangs....what a treat. We look forward to your return and helping you make more Mustang memories. KT Budde-Jones

“Boy becomes a man becomes a boy”
Reviewed 16 March 2012

When I was a little boy I played with toy airplanes, maybe in part because my dad flew during the second world war. Later, as a young adult, I built models and hung them in my bedroom. Time went by as it must and the toys went but the dreams never did;
someday I will fly in a P51 Mustang. Then along came Stallion 51. Not only did the dream come true, it was better than I could have imagined . I did not fly in a P-51 I flew a P-51. The experience from begining to end could not have been more professional, safe and just plain - smile on your face like a big kid - fun. On landing my wife was there to greet me and she said she could see a little boy in the man she married almost 30 years ago. Don't know what else to say, except humbly,... thank you all.

Big Boys just have bigger toys and bigger dreams. We are so glad that we could fulfill your childhood dreams of flying in a P-51 Mustang at Stallion 51. It is great to know that we can met and exceed expectations by not only providing a means of flying in a Mustang but also letting you take the controls of our P-51 Crazy Horse and flying her yourself. Glad we could connect with your inner boy. Please come back and see us again. KT Budde-Jones

“Crossed off the top item on my 'Bucket List'”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

Stallion 51 has it nailed down! I just can't commend the entire staff highly enough. Everyone made me feel welcome and were very professional. When I first saw "Crazy Horse" at an air show and learned that flights were available for non-pilots, I made up my mind I would fly that beautiful aircraft some day. I flew with Steve "Mad Dog" Larmore on February 1, 2012 and I have to say the actual event far exceeded my expectations. What a thrill to fly this iconic WWII aircraft with a great instructor pilot like Steve. If you're an aviation enthusiast, you just have to visit Kissimmee and fly the Mustang.

“WOW, what a training flight in the TF-51, Crasy Horse II !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Stallion 51 made it easy to get any info I needed to set up a reservation to fly the TF-51. Once I did than Julia sent me info for directions, hotels and restaurants near by. When I arrived for my flight, I was impressed with their facility. All the staff welcomed me and made me feel at home. I met the pilot John 'Homer' Black. We had a breifing, aircraft walk around and than got me in a flight suit and helmet and away we went. I flew the aircraft almost all the time after take-off and up to landing. Homer is a great flight instructor and will keep up on your toes. I had never flown a high performance aircraft like the P-51 so it took some getting use to, but still had a ball. This was something I had always wanted to do and I very glad Stallion 51 provides a way for me and others to do it.

“Unbelieveable experience”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

What a great opportunity to enjoy an iconic symbol of American history. The pilot, John "Homer" Black was very professional and a GREAT pilot. The one hour flight can only be described as awesome.
Thanks to Lee Lauderback and the entire crew at Stallion 51 for maintaining these beautiful aircraft and providing the opportunity for the rest of us to be able to experience the thrill of Mustang flight.
