This is a unique adventure that you can only experience on Kauai! The YMF-5 Super is the only biplane on Kauai. Specially designed for three people, the Red Baron and two passengers, this bright red aircraft offers a unique way to see the mountains and cliffs of the Garden Isle. While the Red Baron, your pilot, flies from the rear cockpit, the passengers are able to take in panoramic views from the cozy-yet-comfortable open cockpit that has room for two. Each passenger is provided with a nostalgic cloth helmet and goggles for use during your flight, as well as a modern headset that provides two-way communications with The Red Baron as he narrates your aerial adventure around the entire island of Kauai.
The YMF-5 Super Waco hearkens back to the golden years of aviation! As Kauai's only biplane, this bright red aircraft stands out as the most unique way to experience the most beautiful of the Hawaiian islands. The YMF-5 Super features the classic 2-blade propeller & stacked-wing configuration of early 20th century airplanes. Although the old-fashioned design, leather interior & cherry red paint job might seem outdated, the YMF-5 Super is anything but archaic. Featuring fully modern systems, avionics & flight instrumentations, this aircraft is up-to-date with all of today's safety regulations & flight standards. You can rest assured that you'll be in good hands with AirVentures.
