Constructed when Frank Sinatra was topping the charts and tailfins on Cadillacs were king. This restored vintage Cessna 170A was constructed in in Wichita, KS, spent much of its life on the West Coast, and was acquired by WideWings in 2013. Restored in 2016 and 2017 with a new instrument panel and interior, this aircraft is perfect for scenic family flights over Chesapeake Bay, over Shenandoah National Park, or the local DC region.
This aircraft trained the Greatest Generation to fly when it counted most. Whether talking about the pilot of a P-51 Mustang or a B-17 Flying Fortress, nearly every single airmen in World War II began his or her flight training in a Stearman. This aircraft truly affords a glimpse into the past--the roar of the radial engine, wind whipping past the open cockpit, and a view second to none. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you’ll treasure for years to come.
