Olde Thyme Aviation
Olde Thyme Aviation operates scenic airplanes flights in authentic restored original antique airplanes at historic Boeing Field halfway between downtown Seattle and Sea-Tac International Airport. We have operated flights since 1996 in planes that have histories from 1927 through 1945. The six planes currently flying at Boeing Field available for flights are 2 Waco UPF-7s (1940 & 1942), 1 Stearman Kaydet (1944 PT-17 Army), 1 Cabin Waco 1935 UKC-S, and a 1944 North American AT-6., Since 1996, we have flown over 10,000 rides for nearly 25,000 passengers. Our mission is to have fun with select individuals whom seek an experience in how it was like to fly in a civilian bi-wing plane in the 30s or in a primary military trainer biplane of the late 30s and early 40s. Flights are offered at Boeing Field at the Museum of Flight on Weekends only on a walk-up basis. We operate under an FAA Part 91 Regulation and do NOT offer airport to airport flights. We take off and land at the same airport under our FAA Letter of Operating Authority. Rides are flown within a 25 mile radius in daylight hours only. You'll load up amongst the many active aircraft using Boeing Field daily which can range from private general aviation aircraft, corporate business jets to the huge MD-80s used for UPS shipments or the new Boeing 787s and 747 cargo jets. Often you may see active military jets such as F-18s or F-15s which may also use the ramps for refueling that are common to our area. It is a very exciting and "live" place to me for anyone whom likes aviation or multiple types of aircraft. It's a very dynamic environment. Bring your camera!
