St. Louis Biplane Rides Now Offering Waco Flights Over St. Louis Area
By Carmelo Turdo
The Midwest Aviation Community welcomes St. Louis Biplane Rides back to Ideal Aviation at St. Louis Downtown Airport again this summer. Pilot Kevin Kegin offers flights in a beautiful 1941 Waco UPF-7 biplane over the St. Louis area, including slow and steady flight as well as gentle aerobatics depending on the flight package purchased. The aircraft can be seen most weekends in front of historic 1929 Curtiss-Wright Hangar 2, where the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum resides, between flights.
Here are some views you can have from the St. Louis area flight:
