Snoopy is the luckiest dog alive. He gets to strap on his goggles, climb aboard his doghouse and be instantly transported into skies where he performs flips and barrel rolls like a pro. Too bad you don’t have a magical doghouse that you can comfortably sit astride. Forget the doghouse and fly in a real plane instead with today’s Swoop from Gauntlet Warbirds. Choose from the following options:
- $299 for a 40-minute T-6 flight experience (a $520 value)
- $229 for a 40-minute Boeing N2S Stearman flight experience (a $390 value)
- $229 for a 40-minute Extra 300 flight experience (a $390 value)
Operating out of Aurora Airport west of downtown Chicago, Gauntlet Warbirds will give you an experience unlike any other: a thrilling ride in a World War II-era or aerobatic stunt plane. Choose from a T-6 (one of the most famous advanced trainer planes during WWII) the Boeing N2S Stearman (a WWII military training plane) or the Extra 300 (a high-performance certified aerobatic aircraft). With an emphasis on fun and safety, the pilots at Gauntlet Warbirds will conduct a thorough safety inspection with you before your flight begins. Next, design your own personalized 40-minute flight with one of Gauntlet Warbirds’ instructor pilots. Your flight can be mild or wild — choose from stunts such as wingovers, tailslides, torque rolls, snap rolls and maki rolls. Soon you’ll find yourself dipping and spinning or relaxing cruising the skies over Illinois only wishing for one thing: that it would never end. Once back on the ground you'll find yourself with memories to last a lifetime, a photo op of your experience and an urge to return to the skies. So swoop in on today’s deal and who knows, you may even catch a glimpse of Snoopy’s friend Woodstock high in the sky.
