Relive the Golden Age of Aviation with our beautiful 1990 WACO YMF-5. Two passengers sit up front in a bench style seat, side by side, with the pilot behind them. We offer several different options for air tours on the Outer Banks, cruising along the ocean with the chance to see lighthouses, schools of fish, dolphins, sea turtles, shipwrecks and of course the Wright Brothers’ Monument!
Grab a friend, slip into your flying helmet, climb up on the wing and into the front seat for a trip back in time...join us for an air tour over the Outer Banks today; it's no ordinary plane ride, it's one of the most exciting things to do on the Outer Banks, an adventure of a lifetime!
In the late 1980's, the WACO Aircraft Corporation began the reincarnation of a 50 year old design. Many thousands of hours went into engineering the upgraded version of the old classic, resulting in a brand new FAA Certified production aircraft...the WACO YMF. This modern day barnstormer was built in 1990, while still retaining the sanctity of the original WACO design. Over 300 engineering improvements have been made, including steel frame, hydraulics and the latest avionics. In other words, the plane you wil fly in on your Outer Banks air tour is of modern manufacture, it is not an antique.
At OBX Biplanes, we are committed to the highest degree of safety and customer service, our pilots have tens of thousands of hours flight time with many decades of experience. We look forward to sharing the experience of open cockpit flying with you.
