Soar Over The Nation’s Newest National Park Aboard A WWII Biplane In West Virginia
Welcome to West Virginia, where you can do many adventurous things, including soar over America’s newest National Park, the New River Gorge, on a World War II biplane…and yes, the experience is definitely every bit as epic as it sounds.
West Virginia's stunning New River Gorge has been getting some major attention lately, thanks to recent legislation that shifted it from a National River to a full-fledged National Park and Preserve.
And it's about time this iconic gorge got the recognition it deserves.
The re-designation of the New River Gorge means more tourism dollars are in store for the area, as visitors eager to mark National Parks off their bucket list flock to America's newest.
And while there are many good ways to see the gorge, perhaps the best, most memorable option is by WWII biplane.
Yes, we're serious. At Wild Blue Adventure Company, you can hop into an authentic Stearman Biplane and head for the wild blue yonder.
Under the expert care of experienced pilot Bill Chouinard, you'll get a tour of West Virginia's rugged gorge that you'll NEVER forget.
Tour options include flights over the New River Gorge, Summersville Lake, Kanawha Falls, or all three in one.
Tour lengths range from 20 minutes to one hour, and prices range from $175 to $425 per flight.
Only one person can accompany the pilot at a time.
But the experience is worth the price. You're absolutely guaranteed to see some jaw-dropping views. But you never know what other magic you might spot in your time in the sky!
And if riding in a World War II biplane over one of the oldest, most rugged gorges in the nation isn't enough adventure for you... it's pretty easy to talk Pilot Bill into some aerobatics: a barrel roll, cravat, hammerhead, or s-turn stunt, anyone?
How can you turn down a once-in-a-lifetime experience like this one? You can't. See you at the hangar!
