1929 Travel Air 4000 " Ace"

HELLO GOODFOLKS!! Strap on a leather helmet and goggles and relive the past. The 1920s-30s were the golden age of aviation and barnstormer pilots traveled the country and introduced the masses to the skies above. Goodfolk & O'Tymes Biplane Rides is your opportunity to experience that unique feeling from the early years of aviation. We are the only commercial biplane ride company in the Dayton, Columbus, and Cincinnati area. This past year we were able to add another beautiful biplane to our fleet. We still have the most popular 1929 Travel Air 4000 that can carry up to two passengers, but including a 1930 D-25 new Standard  that can carry up to four passengers has really made Goodfolk and O'Tymes Biplane Rides one of the most popular barnstorming businesses East of the Mississippi. You can take your pick to ride in one or both of our beautiful biplanes. Both aircraft will give you a piece of history to take home with you.  

​Have you ever dreamed about flying like a bird?  Well, experience that dream with Goodfolk & O'Tymes Biplane Rides. The low and slow flight characteristics of these flying machines will allow you to step back in time and enjoy the pleasures of flying like a bird. Let the wind blow through your hair and the smells from the countryside give you the magical feeling of the early barnstorming years. Whether this is something to mark off your bucket list, a unique idea for a romantic date, surprise your spouse for an anniversary present, a wedding proposal, birthday, Father's day, or just a joy ride, Goodfolk & O'Tymes Biplane Rides is here for that occasion. We are here to make some of the most memorable dreams come true.
