We will not be operating in Italy during the 2015 season. Attention aviators, Are you ready for your Aviator Experience in an authentic Vintage Aircraft? Join Vintage Aeroplane for a joyride like no other. Sensations of the wind in your hair, open skies above, the sounds and smells of that big round engine are all yours to enjoy! Fly a biplane, an authentic military trainer from the 1930s. For a day or forever, you will feel like an Aviator from a bygone era. Come and visit the Aviator Flying Museum at Pratello, a resort airfield between Pisa and Florence where we have located our Southern base for vintage flight (Avio Superfice Peccioli Pratello PI09). Our museum is much more than a static airplane display. It provides you with the ability to fly in authentic historical aircraft, experiencing all of the sensations of a time gone by. Our Museum offers Vintage Discovery Flights and fully FAA Certified Flight Training in authentic aircraft from the golden age of flight, like the Boeing Stearman, the Aeronca Champ, the Beech Staggerwing and the Waco UIC.

While driving through the Tuscan countryside near Peccioli, we passed a small air strip and saw two beautifully restored vintage 1942 WWII plans outside of the hanger. On a whim, we drove in and met Jon, the owner and pilot of these amazing planes. By...More

Jon gave a good explanation about the STEARMAN and the other planes in the hangar. Flying over Tuscany with a classic plane, what pilots wouldn't like that?
