About Biplane Adventures
Bi-Plane Adventures, Inc. has been in operation since 1996. Our company objective is simple… you fly, you smile, we smile (you pay, we smile again). We offer an exciting and unique experience to the general public through vintage open-cockpit biplane rides. We are biplane fanatics (that’s an understatement), love what we do, and get just as much enjoyment out of sharing this feeling with others. We do all of this with the highest degree of safety and customer service.
Everything in life has risk. Quite simply, your biggest risk will be driving to the airport. Safety is the only thing that takes priority over having fun. We give hundreds of flights each year and our pilots are FAA certified commercial pilots (and darn good-looking) with thousands of hours of experience. We maintain a perfect flying safety record and our aircraft are maintained to meet the highest FAA maintenance standards. We are fully insured.
Both our aircraft have been fully restored. The N3N-3 was restored by the owner Lee Kluger. The aircraft receives regular inspection under a 50 and 100-hour progressive maintenance program. We have families just like you and love coming home to dinner, just like you. You will not find another flight operation with more attention to the details of all aspects of our operations.
Owner / Chief Pilot
Lee Kluger is the owner and “driving” force behind Bi-plane Adventures, Inc. If you are flying with us you will more than likely be flying with the owner. Lee started flying 36 years ago at the age of 15. Since then, he has accumulated over 26,000 flight hours in over 85 different types of aircraft, including over 4000 hours in his N3N-3. He has an Airline Transport rating (the FAA’s highest rating) and is a Certified Flight Instructor, meaning you may be able to log your flight time. Lee is a Certified Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) Mechanic and holds a Inspection Authorization certificate, and personally spent over 5,000 hours, three years and two girlfriends restoring this aircraft. He holds a degree in Aeronautical Engineering and also has a commercial glider rating. Bi-Plane Adventures, Inc. maintains a perfect safety record with over 13,000 rides given.
That perfect safety record means…. Every day since Bi-Plane Adventures, Inc. has been in business we have:
1. Never had an accident.
2. Never had an incident.
3. Never put as much as a scratch on any airplane.
4. Never had an insurance claim.
5. Never hurt a soul, though I did hit a squirrel once driving to the airport.
We take pride in that record, and it doesn’t happen just by luck.
If you’re getting the idea that Lee is passionate about what he does…you’re right (Just ask his wife)!
