Additional DC-3 Experiences

Experience the view from the cockpit of this classic airliner! Our DC-3 flights give you the special opportunity to ride in the Jump Seat with the pilots for either a take-off or landing. For just $50 you can treat yourself or a friend to an opportunity that won't be forgotten.

Pre-Flight Experience

For all aviation enthusiasts out there, here’s your chance to be included in the procedures and briefings that are part of a professional aviation companies' pre-flight preparations. You will accompany various members of the flight and ground crews as they carry out their respective duties, and attend the Captain's operational and crew briefings. You will meet the Passenger Services Manager one hour and fifteen minutes before scheduled departure time, and he or she will assign a crew member to be your guide through the experience.

Our guide will be with you at all times, and whilst you must be careful not to distract him or her from their tasks, they’ll do all they can to show you what’s involved, and answer your questions. You will be able to accompany the pilots on their aircraft pre-flight inspection, observe the preparations in the lounge for the passenger’s arrival, and the many tasks involved in ensuring that all safety procedures are followed.

You’ll attend two briefings, one involving the flight crew, where the Captain discusses operational matters, flight procedures etc. and secondly the overall crew briefing, where all personnel involved meet to discuss the particular details of each flight with regard to safety issues, passenger obligations, and the loading/unloading procedures.

The pre-flight proceedings must be completed by thirty minutes prior to the arrival of the first passengers, and necessarily must follow a disciplined schedule, so we need to make sure that you are here at the nominated time.

This is a unique opportunity to see the inner workings of aviation, and Shortstop Jet Charter are delighted to be able to offer it to their customers. The cost is $175 per person, with a maximum of two places available per flight.

The experience also incorporates a position in the Cockpit for either Take-Off or Landing.
