Yet, there is an untold and hidden story inside these planes.
A story of seeing life as a great adventure, as an unpaved road leading to an obscure destiny, with one order; Make that life into a polished diamond and serve your fellow humans and the country you live in. It is those that interact with planes and, sometimes on a daily basis, going up in the sky that need to learn to deal with that extra dimension. How to negotiate with that additional freedom and how to give that a place in your life?
It is truly a story that has the potential to reach out to all people, inside and outside aviation.
Is there a better way to fly than in an open air cockpit with wind that blows in your face, two wings that lift you off the ground in seconds, driven by that huge radial engine thundering five feet in front of you? A better way to experience life to the extreme?
Biplane pilots feel privileged they can do so. They have learned, like many others in aviation, how to form their lives with the lessons learned while flying. Planes teach us how to use our hands, our brains, our hearts. We learn via them how to make decisions, how to behave cordially, how to respect nature.
Planes are the ultimate teaching platform.
It is this insight that has motivated pilots with their Stearmans to have a five months tour throughout the USA and Canada in 2021. Landing on airfields and telling that two-sided story: Here are the planes that helped win a war and here are the planes that can help you learn things about your life.
Stearmans were pilot makers; now they are human makers. They found a new job. A story especially for the young generation that is faced with many challenges and temptations. Find your way back to yourself. So that they become whoever they are; football player, doctor, pilot or anything else that lays dormant in their heart.
We can help. The Stearman can help.
Once landed, we set up our camp. We show the planes flying. We hold our unique Storyteller and Theater Shows around the planes. Exciting, funny and with tiny little life lessons.
We have a story to tell. The real, untold and hidden story.
