Spotlight: Stallion 51

If you have always wondered what it would be like to pilot a plane, Stallion51 is the place to go.  Stallion 51 is a comprehensive aviation organization offering a wide range of services.  From Orientation flights to Recurrent training, this FAA certified company will keep you flying high.

For the Orientation flight, whether you have flight experience or not, you will go through pre-flight briefing.  Once in flight, you will be invited to maneuver the aircraft yourself!  From basic flying to aerobatics, you are in control!  Afterward, you will do through debriefing, where you log your flight time and check out the video of your flight.  The video includes three different camera views from a state-of-the-art on board camera system.  You get to keep the video, as well as a flight profile certificate and photo of the Mustang you piloted.

Stallion 51 also offers various checkout training programs that will give you professional flight training in a world-class facility.  They also offer transition programs for those wishing to advance to high performance WWII fighter aircraft such as the P-51 Mustang. In this program, the syllabus is customized to your background and experience level, making the step to the bigger fighters seamless and enjoyable. All flights are professionally briefed and video debriefed using their high-resolution on-board digital video system.

Recurrent training is a part of every professional flight department.   Polishing skills, reviewing procedures, and practicing maneuvers annually with an experienced instructor are a necessary part of flying high-performance aircraft.  Texan Flight Ops offers T-6 Texan recurrent training, which can be tailored to your individual requirements, but are typically structured around a one or two-day course consisting of ground school and flying.

Some of the aircraft managed by Stallion 51 include the rare P-51 Mustang and T-6 Texan.  The P-51 Mustang is a legendary aircraft, known throughout the world.  There are less than 175 of these award-winning aircraft (in flying condition) left.  The T-6 Texan is a two seat, dual controlled, 600 horsepower ex-military trainer used for advanced gunnery and fighter tactics training. You can enjoy a rare opportunity to experience first-hand the thrill and excitement of flying this vintage WWII advanced trainer.

Stallion 51 has also established AVMED 51, a fully operational aviation and pilot-oriented medical clinic that focuses on the care and well-being of aviators and flight crews.  Located in Kissimmee, this aviation attraction is not far from Central Florida’s theme parks.
