It was an experience I will never forget.Saturday, November-12- 16 Some weeks ago I was reading an article in the Alliston newspaper about the Acer Cold War Museum. I was intrigued by the fact that they offered flights to paying customers in former trainer jet fighters. I thought, “ I have to do this”. So I got on the phone and called. Michael Bourget answered and he explained the whole process to me. He also mentioned that they did formation flying which requires 2 planes and of course, another passenger. I was hooked, as I had the perfect person that I wanted to take. There was a time interval of about 4 weeks before we would actually fly. Time enough for all my children, relatives and friends to tell me that I was nuts. Needless to say, my confidence was waning fast. This is where Michael came in to explain to me that we only needed to be as radical as I wanted to be. If I just wanted to cruise that would be fine. I did let it slip out that I wanted to do a rollover.(Everyone again saying, “Are you crazy?”) . By this time I was committed as I had paid my money and we were going, no matter what. The day finally arrived and I was up very early getting mentally prepared. My friend was probably even more anxious but we had said we were going and were not turning back. We arrived at the airport and after some delays which are something you have to get used to as there is a lot to get into place so that you can have a safe flight, we were in the planes and in the air soaring 2000 feet off the ground. We did some formation flying; I managed to survive 2 rollovers, some maneuvers and even got to fly the plane briefly. It was the fastest 30 minutes of my life. It was spectacular. I was so busy enjoying the experience I forgot to look for my house down below. When we were back on land I said to Mike that I’d had a lot worse ferry rides than in his jet. My friend who I know was really worried about this trip was ready to go again. To all 3 Mikes, Peter and Michele thank you for being so engaging, informative, considerate and fun to be with.It was an experience I will never forget.
Sticktime was awesome!
"When I finished my ride with Captain Kirk in the Aero L-29 jet I told my dad that this was one of the best days of my life ! It was awesome! We pulled 4.5 G's and it was extremely fun feeling even my eyelids get heavy. I was able to do some great aileron rolls and experience first hand some of the capabilities of this aircraft. Flying in formation was incredibly cool. Thanks so much to the three Mike's who helped me feel really comfortable. The ACER Cold War Museum has an AMAZING program and I would say to anyone interested do NOT pass up this phenomenal opportunity to experience the rush and have some stick time in the L-29 Delfin."
