Our CAF - Southern California Wing has now in full operation a special program to introduce the public to the thrilling realm of experiencing flight in an authentic warbird, including our North American P-51 Mustang "Man O' War," SNJ-5 (AT-6) Texan and Fairchild PT-19A Cornell.

For a very reasonable price for the enclosed-cockpit SNJ-5; the open-cockpit PT-19A; or the 2-seat P-51 Mustang "Man O' War" high-performance fighter, you can reserve your flight, or a flight for a loved one, with one of our highly qualified pilots for a memorable 20 minute ride - perhaps over the Ventura County coastline or along the edge of our northern mountains.

Flights are scheduled on Saturdays, depending upon the weather, and the availability of pilots.

To check prices and sign up for a ride in our Vintage Aircraft Ride Program, call (805) 482-0064 and tell the CAF member you want to ride in a Warbird - and tell him/her which one you want to fly in.

We accept credit cards.

For you, or for your loved one, it will be the thrill of a lifetime! Call us today at (805) 482-0064 to make your reservation.

You, too, can be smiling. Just pick up the 'phone and call (805) 482-0064 and sign up for a memorable flight in our user-friendly warbird. Or better yet, order a flight for your favorite uncle, or aunt, or son, or daughter, or husband, or wife, or.....you get the picture! We are ready to take you or your friend flying!

And don't forget to take your camera for those special photos that will help you remember your extraordinary flight!

Flights are scheduled on Saturdays, depending upon the weather, and the availability of pilots.

You can also sign up for our flights via our other website:www.cafsocal.com
