C-47 Passenger Flights
At this point, we are not selling any additional rides on our D-Day combat veteran C-47, Tico Belle. She is currently in a maintenance phase which should be completed by mid to late September.
Once we re-start flight operations, we will be offering a different product than before. The seating arrangement has been changed to a very comfortable club seating style, in order to provide a better environment for enjoying the ride with friends and family. The flights will last about an hour, with approximately 45 minutes of actual
flight time. We will be offering these as "Champagne Flights” offering champagne, prosecco, orange juice, and light snacks for your enjoyment, as you enjoy the local sights such as the Cocoa Beachfront and the Kennedy Space Center. You will enjoy a period style flight, with the crew in era appropriate uniforms.
During the summer, due to the common afternoon thunderstorms, we will schedule these flights on the second Saturday of the month, at 12 Noon, in conjunction with our Fly-in Breakfast. Passengers will need to be checked in and at the airplane no later than 11:30. Later in the year, we plan on offering these flights in the early
evening, offering a "sunset flight", depending on the weather. Again, these will be on the second Saturday of the month.
Once again, we are not taking any additional customers for our revenue flights, until the aircraft is back in flight status, and we have worked our way through the backlog of customers who have already paid. Please be sure to check our website: http://www.valiantaircommand.com for updates, since this will be our primary way of getting the current information out to you, our valuable supporters . In the meantime, customers can leave their contact info with our PX staff, but the best source of current information will be our website.
