Far West Aviation

Far West Aviation offers both scenic and aerobatic rides. You will ride in a modified 1941 Boeing Stearman (PT-17, WWII military trainer) and experience what can only be felt during an open cockpit biplane ride. You will tour the local area with sights of El Paso, the Franklin mountains and the Mesilla valley. Your pilot for the flight has thirty five years experience and over 18,000 hours of flight time. Take in the scenery and snap some pictures or even try your hand at the controls. Our goal is to offer you an enjoyable experience and memories that will last a lifetime. If you're up for a bit more excitement and the thrill of experiencing aerobatic flight we have rides for you as well. You will get to experience loops, rolls, cuban eights, hammer head turns and other maneuvers. The plane for your flight, named Tillie, attracts attention wherever she goes. A beautiful plane and the winner of many awards has been modified with a 450hp Pratt & Whitney engine that has more than twice the power of the original. We will tailor your scenic flight to your desires as much as time permits. Our flights make great gifts for any occasion or just treat yourself to a ride you won't soon forget. Whether you're in Southern New Mexico or West Texas (El Paso) come see us for your open cockpit biplane ride. No one else offers this kind of experience in our area and other operators charge almost twice as much around the country. Looking for something new and different to do, give us a try. We can record your ride with HD video and produce a DVD of your ride for a nominal fee.
