Cessna rides

Posted by John Bowen on June 28, 2014 at 11:45 AM

Updated for 2016:  Assuming good weather, Cessna rides will again be available.  Purchase tickets outside the Terminal near the Display Aircraft area...there will be signs.  Adults are $35 and children are $25 and the ride lasts about 20 minutes.  Note this is separate from EAA Young Eagles flights which are outside the Subway from noon to 2.

Could you please tell me the age limit of children having rides in the airplanes?
Also, how many persons can ride together.
thank you,

Pauley


Got an answer from the ride coordinator: " An adult will need to accompany children under eight years old. The aircraft will generally carry three plus the pilot on the inside. There are no plans to carry passengers on the outside this year."

Hi Ashley. This is my personal opinion. I am a pilot and I have a 3 year old grandson. I'm pretty sure it will be several more years before I take him flying. However, my 3 year old grandson loves to walk around and see airplanes. And, the National Guard C-130 will be open to walk through.
For other opinions, ask the pilots who are giving rides on Saturday.

We come out every year, but i have an almost 3 year old who is in LOVE with airplanes. I have been saying that if we have the opportunity to take her on an airplane ride, i am taking her.. but i don't know if its a good idea. I was curious if it would be "kid friendly" so to say, or if her ears would probably pop really bad so she wouldn't enjoy it. I have only ever been on an airplane once, so i don't know if different kinds of airplanes cause ear popping worse then others, or how it works. I figured that maybe you would know from experience, how well it usually works out with kids.

Thank you,
Ashley
