Collings Foundation

NEWS FLASH! The Collings Foundation is proud to announce that our Douglas A-1E Skyraider will be joining the Wings of Freedom Tour for the California part of the tour from April 26 through June 10! We are now booking 25-minute flight experiences at visits around California (see schedule at: www.collingsfoundation.org/events/category/wings-of-freedom-tour/)

Flights are $900 per person for the cockpit seat and $450 per person for the each of the four rear seats. The participant in the cockpit will not be able to take the controls, it is only a ride. We need to have a minimum of one person in front and two passengers in back, OR four passengers in back to make a flight go. Much like the B-25 and P-51, we can fly flights in the Skyraider at anytime during the day. Please note that passenger compartment access requires passengers to be able bodied, as you need to climb unassisted on the wing and up the side of the fuselage.

Call 978-562-9182 to book a flight on the Skyraider or any other aircraft on the tour in California - details at www.collingsfoundation.org/flight-experiences/
