Warbird Flight Adventures

For a limited time, the Delaware Aviation Museum Foundation (DAMF) is proud to offer you the chance to not only walk a mile in the shoes of the greatest generation and other heroes but soar on the wings of the legendary aircraft in the DAMF collection.

Additionally, DAMF has partnered with the Capital Wing of the Commemorative Air Force, located in Culpeper, Virginia, to offer a unique opportunity to fly in a combination of warbirds not available anywhere else.  The two organizations will be appearing together in a limited number of events.  Please go to the “Events” tab of the website for a listing of those events. 

Listed below are the aircraft available for Flight Adventures in selected events.  Click on the photo below of the aircraft you would like to take the flight of a lifetime in, then select your seat and pay for your flight on the next page.  The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) aircraft are only available for selected events.  For DAMF aircraft, if you do not see a date/event that does not work for your schedule, please call 443-458-8926 to schedule a flight adventure that suits your schedule.
