Take Flight with astronaut Sam Gemar in a 1942 Stearman Biplane

Three-time space shuttle veteran Sam Gemar will be your pilot for a flight you're not soon to forget!

Gemar will fly you in a vintage 1942 Stearman biplane, the same aircraft that was used during World War II to train Air Cadets for the U.S. Army. Seated in the front, nothing will compare to this open cockpit flight.

Your flight will take place from 1K1, Lloyd Stearman Field in Benton, Kansas (10 miles east of Wichita). The Field is unique with seven operating vintage Stearman.

Transportation and accommodations are not included. The actual date of the event, not to exceed one year after the close of the auction, will be determined by Mr. Gemar's schedule as well as the flying season. ASF reserves the right to disqualify the high bidder, to reject the high bid, and to accept a bid from a lower bidder, for any reason within their discretion, which shall be exercised in good faith. The winning bidder of this event may be required to submit proof of identity and be subject to a background check.
