The speed at which money becomes noise in all of these aircraft is just stunning. When I did the AOPA article on FiFi, they were telling me the flight time would run about 10 grand. Everyone thinks they'd like to put together a B25 air to air shoot, until they find out the tab. If you haven't been around it, it's sobering for sure. Come to think of it, if you have been around it, it's sobering.


I just recently put together a ride program for our Museum whereby we can offer membership upgrades and offer a ride in the aircraft they sponsor as the 'perk'. The trickery (albeit legal) is keeping it from becoming commercial. If you can do that you'll save a TON of money. I don't know how the CAF (for example) do it with the B-17 etc but if our 'commercial insurance' rates are anything like they might be paying I can certainly see why they have to charge what they do.

Cost to fuel the aircraft (and oil) is sometimes covered by the event hosts/organizers...but not always. The money needed for the engine overhaul fund is substantial. Take the Lancaster based in Hamilton, Ontario....HALF a MILLION to overhaul the 4 Merlin's (not including the spare they keep).

When I do a2a with my friend Bill in his Harvard/T-6 it's almost always part of some kind of formation training which is why the subjects are always in so tight with most of my work. I foot half the gas and oil bill on every flight where we aren't being compensated for being part of things. It's certainly not cheap lol.

AFAIK, the CAF rules prohibit Point A to Point B flights...

Point A to Point A is considered local "sight seeing" and as such, is not considered to be "holding out" as a transportation service.

I can vouch for this. That was the only time anyone's labeled me 'media' and the only other time I signed my name so many times was on my mortgage.

Offering 'rides' can still be deemed 'commercial' (at least here) but not going point A to B certainly helps make your case. We break the membership upgrade cost into two parts and work within the rev canada rules to keep it safe for the Museum.


btw - looks like you had a spectacular day, Jay! Lovely shot of a gorgeous Pony!

In the 1950s , the Air Force charged an iner-service rate of $ 1000.00 per hour to ride/carry cargo in the C-124 Globemasters. I quess it was just another grab of taxpayers money. Think what it must have been when the C5 started flying. Lockheed Edsel- gas guzzler for sure.

Wow, nice to see all the pieces coming together.

When I visited her, there was an instrument panel on the wall full of empty gauge holes. And an anecdote posted to the side, where a newspaper reporter had suggested that maybe the museum owed Memphis something for taking care of her all these years. The alleged reply was something along the lines of don't even think about it, until the residents returned all the parts that had been stolen while she was there.
