Waldo Wrights Flying Service just recently completed restoration on American Airways/Airlines oldest remaining aircraft after an extensive 9 years. This Travel Air E-4000, NC691K, was purchased in October, 1929 by Texas Air Transport when Mr. C.R. Smith was secretary/treasurer and the original bill of sale was signed by Mr. Smith himself.  Texas Air Transport merged with Gulf Coast Airways (New Orleans) which together, became Southern Air Transport.  Southern Air Transport was gobbled up by AVCO, which was a holding company that was buying many small airlines.  AVCO became American Airways in 1930.  This Travel Air E-4000 was there on day one and flew for American until May of 1931.  It is painted in what is believed to be original TAT colors and to honor its' heritage, has the TAT logo hand painted on the left side of the fuselage, and SAT logo on the right.

Height and Weight Restrictions: For two passengers to fit side by side in this aircraft, each must weigh less than 200 lbs.  No one more than 275 lbs. will be able to board the plane. Any guest weighing between 200-275 lbs must pay for both seats on the flight as a single rider.

Effective August 1, 2018, there is a $6 per ticket fuel surcharge added to the price as well as any applicable taxes.

Just wanted to say that our flight yesterday (Sunday) was an amazing experience. We truly enjoyed the biplane (wish I owned one now) and have told all of our friends about it. Thanks again for making it a memorable day!
