DC-3 Ground School, HFF, 8-5

2019 will be a special year for the C-47/DC-3. Our N877MG will participate in both “Daks Over Normandy” and the 70th anniversary of the Berlin Air Lift.

The fall edition of DC-3 ground school will be offered by a stellar team of HFF pilots on Saturday, October 6th. Doors will open at 8 with class beginning at 8:30. This course is recommended for current DC-3 pilots as a refresher, aspiring DC-3 pilots as an introduction, and DC-3 enthusiasts desiring second- and third-level knowledge. Course materials will be delivered electronically upon receipt of the $250 course fee. For qualified pilots, second-in-command and pilot-in-command flight training can be scheduled for the days following ground school. The base for flight training will depend on the runway repair situation at Paine Field. Contact Visitor Services at 425.348.3200 to reserve your spot.

    01/29/2011: I discovered your collection today after a visit to Flight Heritage, and they told me to go check out Historic Flight. I had a wonderful time and was very impressed with your aircraft! I am truly encouraged to know that everything is in flying condition. I can’t wait to go back. I was really happy to see the Tiger Cat and also the P-51B Mustang. I see the P-51D regularly but not the B-model. I have never seen the Tiger Cat up close, and I would LOVE to see that one fly.
    By the way, I recognize one of the pictures on your site called “Four Ship Formation.” That is three P-51 Mustangs flying formation with the F-22, and that had to be taken at the Gathering of Mustangs and Legends 2007 in Ohio, which I attended and took several photos like that one. That sure was a great event, and I am forever thankful to everyone who put that together.
