The C-47 Pilot Experience was quite an adventure, and, educational as well!
Gift for father who is an avid pilot. Unique experience!
Captain Jim did a great job with us!
Simply outstanding from begining to end. Especially all the flying involved. Thanks Jim and Chuck so very much. Never to be forgotten.
This was an absolutely magical experience - Jim Terry did an astounding job. He made us feel so welcome and comfortable - his confidence in his airplane is contagious, and his willingness to let a visitor actually take the controls is an amazing gift to anyone lucky enough to join him. Highly recommend this wonderful opportunity.
My dad and son had an absolutely fabulous time! All the volunteers were helpful and informative. Great experience! Would highly recommend!
A fantastic experience! Flying the C-47 up Eagle Mountain Lake was so much fun and the instructor couldn’t have been more friendly and accommodating. The only thing I want to know now is when can I go again!
To the crew of "Southern Cross", Being in my mid-seventies and having a high interest in aircraft (especially WW II vintage) all my life, it was a most gratifying experience to spend the afternoon with you guys in and flying the C-47. The obvious care and attention to detail that was displayed toward your guests for their enjoyment and safety is greatly appreciated by me and my wife Nancy. Please keep up the good work and I will always recommend your services to anyone I know with an appreciation for vintage flying. Rob Hopson 1504 Hilltop Ln. Pantego, TX 76013
The experience was priceless. To be able to see the look on my sons face as he took off and landed this awesome piece of history was priceless for me. The staff was 100% over the top professional.
Awesome airplane! The crews were great, very accommodating. Love to do it again!
Really enjoyed it, nice crew and very interesting to see the plane.
Outstanding experience, flying a twin engine C-47! This was a once in a lifetime opportunity, and bucket list log book entry in my lifetime! Absolute "must do" for beginner to very experienced pilot!!
