Since opening in 1996, the Palm Springs Air Museum has maintained its status as a museum that flies its aircraft. Hearing the engines and seeing these amazing warbirds in the sky reinforces the connection between the machines and people who sacrificed so much to make them fill their roll in history’s greatest conflicts.

C-47 must have at least 5 paying tickets (or one fabulous person who buys out the ride!)

Now you, too, can book a ride in one of our vintage Warbirds!

C-47 Skytrain


Our C-47 Skytrain served in the armed forces of a number of countries throughout its 58 year military career. Not until it was acquired by the Museum in 2003, did she receive a civilian registration. Now this aircraft continues to delight Museum visitors as a flyable exhibit. “What’s Up Doc?”, painted complete with original nose art and invasion stripes is a flying tribute to the men and machines used to kick off the June, 6 1944 D-Day invasion.

$195 per seat for a 20 minute flight*, some restrictions apply requires 5 passengers per flight.

P-51 Mustang


Being one of the most iconic fighter aircraft of WWII, the P-51 Mustang saw service in virtually every theatre of the war. It was however the famed Tuskegee Airmen of the 332 Fighter Group that added their special touch by turning a select group of aircraft into the now famed “Red Tails”. Our P-51D “Bunny” pays homage to those brave men by giving its modern day riders the look, feel, sound and smell of those days of dogfights in the skies of Europe.

“Bunny” availability for rides estimated for spring 2018.

*Longer rides available for an additional cost
