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.

My wife and I stopped by Fantasy of Flight today and I had the opportunity to fly in the Stearman with Rob. I was the Navy guy that was hoping to get over his fear of flying. I have to tell you I had the thrill. Yes, it will take time to be 100% percent comfortable again, but you really treated me well and I appreciate you talking to me and explaining everything before, during and after the flight. I REALLY had a great time and plan to return for another flight. You guys are the best! Thank you for the memories and a swell time. I plan on leaning more about the Stearman and we will do figure eight's next time. You both are really fortunate to work at something you truly love.
