About Us

BARNSTORMERS AERO SERVICES, INC. (BASI) offers a fun time for all with Learning to fly, Aerial Scenic Touring, Photo Flights, or exciting Aerobatic Demonstration Flights.
In addition we offer Tail Wheel Transition Training, Unusual Attitude Training, Corporate Upset Training, Spin Training, and/or Aerobatic Flight Training in a Ten or Twenty Flight Curriculum modeled after the U.S. Navy/Marine Corps’ aggressive, but proven, training program.

Whether you’re a novice flyer or as a seasoned aviator seek enhancement of your flying skills – come join the fun flying at Barnstormers and enjoy the excitement of aerobatic flight. Where flying is as it was!
The aerobatic flight training at Barnstormers is geared to personal attention. Every flight consists of a thorough brief before a pilot under instruction (PUI) flys and a debrief after the flight. Maximum usage of the flying hour is thereby achieved eliminating wasted flight time trying to cover flight maneuver procedures while in the air.
We fly the Pitts Special S-2C, a new aircraft, for Unusual Attitude Training, Corporate Upset Training, Spin Training, Basic, Intermediate, Advanced and/or Unlimited Aerobatic Flight Training — each block consisting of five flights each.. We provide flight training for competition aerobatics and will rent the aircraft (accompanied by one of our instructors ininstructors) to those who wish to use it for aerobatic competition meets.instructors) to those who wish to use it for aerobatic competition meets .
Are you a seasoned aviator? — Yes! Ever fly a tail-dragger? — No! Well, we will give you a thorough check out on the so-called notorious nasty habits of the tail-dragger aeroplane. No need to fear though, the reputation is not warranted, but it is certainly different. A proper tail-dragger check out will make you an all-around better pilot and instill good habits when flying a tri-gear airplane. Besides, flying a Tail-dragger is lots of fun! Our instructors have 1000′s of hours in all types of tail-draggers — It has often been said “If you can fly a Pitts — you can fly anything. ”piece of cake”!
Tired of flying from point A to point B? Aerobatic flight instruction is available for those individuals desiring an exciting, challenging, and rewarding form of flying. Aerobatic flight in-stills confidence in the novice flyer and provides the outlet for relaxation, often times needed, for the professional pilot. Flight training in aerobatics provides the pilot with an improvement in basic air-work, confidence in all unusual attitudes and a mastery of the aircraft’s outer portion of the maneuvering flight envelope. The pure joy of flying is now available through Barnstormers!
Our standardized Instructors are dedicated professionals (each having 5000+ hours and are former military/airline pilots) who love to fly. Their motivation is teaching newcomers, imparting invaluable experience and knowledge to the fledgling aviator. They instruct because it’s enjoyable and satisfying for them. However, professional pilots demand professional fees. Compared to other professional industries the aviation field is truly a bargain! Barnstormers Chief Pilot is a former Marine Corps fighter pilot who flew the F-4 Phantom and A-4 Skyhawk and now flys the B-777 for a major airline.
