Climb aboard one of the first mass-produced airliners and step back in time to aviation’s golden age with the "Tin Goose." A flight on EAA’s Ford Tri-Motor is a flight back to an era where air travel was considered a luxury.
EAA Chapter 242 will host the beautifully restored 1929 Ford Tri-Motor – a prime example of the first commercial airliner. Plan on taking a ride, or just come out to watch it fly and take a ground tour to enjoy a visceral, up close and personal experience of history.
The Tri-Motor flight experience lasts for about 30 minutes, with the flight itself being about 15-20 minutes long. Passengers remain belted in for the duration of the flight, and every seat is a window seat.
