We have sold the biplane to our colleage Sam Dodge of Washington state. We look forward to providing some photos of his journey from Stratford to Washington soon.
We are leaving this page up as a momento of our Bi-Plane skyride offerings from 2000 – 2005.
Remember, reference to biplane skyrides are for “memory-lane” purposes and this service has been discontinued in 2005.
Climb Aboard for The Sky Ride of Your Life!
“Hi. I’m Morgan Kaolian. You’re invited to climb aboard our Winkle Kinner BIRD biplane and enjoy an aerial tour of Fairfield and New Haven Counties plus beautiful Long Island Sound. Thrill to a new and exhilarating experience: flying as it was during the “Golden Years” of aviation, the twenties and thirties.”
Team pilot veteran Dave Sayles (right) with passengers. The Brunner Winkle biplane is piloted from the rear seat. That’s right… you get to sit up front.
Passengers Pam and Anthony Fusco are all smiles after their flight.
