There are few places in the world that can match the natural beauty of the Oregon Coast. You can drive the coast from Brookings to Astoria and never cease to be amazed at the beauty around each corner. But if you would like to see that scenery from the next level, you can’t imagine the beauty when seeing it from an open cockpit biplane in the air. Cruise low along the beach, wave to the hikers and smell the surf. View the sea lions in the ocean and see them entering the famous Sea Lions Caves from over the ocean. Cruise past the historic Heceta Head Lighthouse as only the sailors of old have seen it. Smell the fragrant, fresh Oregon pines as you descend into a pristine valley and soar over one of Oregon’s serene lakes. View the historic Siuslaw River and see the relics of past fishing and logging industries and the historic Siuslaw River Bridge. Soar over the vast Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area and wave to the dune buggies below. And do all of this in a meticulously restored 1944 Stearman open cockpit biplane. The classic Stearman was first designed in the 1930’s and was such a reliable and sturdy design that it was chosen to train their pilots for duties overseas in World War 2. Nearly 10,000 total aircraft were built – with thousands having been restored and still flying today. Your highly experienced pilots come from impressive US Air Force careers followed by airline and flight test experience – and they will entertain you with interesting historical facts and land you safely and softly in the grass at the airport – the way Wilbur and Orville would have wanted it! There are several ride profiles available that will fit any budget – or just tell them where you want to fly. Come Fly With Us!

Aerolegends is located at the Florence Municipal Airport.

Imagine floating over Yamhill County’s beautiful wine country in one of the greatest adventures of a lifetime. Between April 1 and October 1, you can see Oregon from a wonderful and unique perspective! Your adventure will begin one-half hour before dawn at Sportsman Airpark in Newberg, Oregon. You’ll have the opportunity to be involved in the inflation process of the balloons or just relax and watch as the huge lengths of rainbow colored nylon are unrolled. Watch as the crew holds the balloon tight while industrial sized fans breathe life into the fabric. Finally the propane jets are ignited and the balloons rise ten stories into the morning sky. Then you’ll take to the sky to enjoy the view as you fly over the beautiful countryside. Conclude your adventure with the balloonist’s traditional full catered breakfast and complimentary flight souvenir.

For more information, or to book your adventure, contact Vista Balloon Adventures at 503-625-7385 or 800-622-3309.
