Your warbird is waiting!

Don’t just get to look at the Arizona Commemorative Air Force Museum’s one-of-a-kind collection of historical military planes. Fly in one!

The Living History Rides listed below occur out of our museum in Mesa, Arizona.  Our Mesa flights take a hiatus due to the hot summer temperatures from July through September and our Bombers go on the Flying Legends of Victory Tour across the U.S. and Canada.

Flights for our summer tour can be found by clicking here.  Select the tour stop you’re interested in and then select your seat!

Looking for our early morning “Dawn Patrol” flights?  Just look for warbirds SNJ T-6 Texan or N2S-3 Stearman in the flight schedule below.  The SNJ was named “the pilot maker” by its crews, and was a trainer aircraft with all the characteristics of a high-speed fighter with more maneuverability and easier handling.  The Stearman is an open-cockpit bi-plane and was also used as a trainer for the majority of pilots in WWII.  (Note: both of these airplanes require passengers to have a certain degree of mobility in order to fly – a passenger must be able to climb on a wing, lift a leg over the side of the cockpit, and lower him/herself in.)

Strap into the gunner position for the ride of a lifetime across the beautiful Arizona desert. There are only a few seats on each plane, and these rides are only available for a limited time. Book your trip before these time-honored planes are retired.
