Testimonials


We surprised my son with a bi-plane ride with Jay for his 11th birthday and let me tell you, he did not disappoint! He picked us up, took us to his hangar where we got to see several beautiful vintage airplanes and he even gave us a little history behind them. He then took my son and off they went flying! He flew over his school and were able to find our house, and best of all, he let my son take the controls. From my son’s mouth, “Mr. Jay was awesome…this was the best birthday present EVER!”
Thank you, Jay for an unforgettable experience for all of us… I can assure you that we will be back!

Lake McIntosh is beautiful from the sky! Pinewood is so much bigger than I thought it would be and it was so much fun flying over my friends home and seeing them wave from the back deck.
I’ve lived in Peachtree City for more than 20 years and thought I had see everything but I hadn’t.
Thanks for a very memorable experience, Kim

Passenger Testimonials for Peachtree City BiplanesI was lucky enough to spend the first official afternoon of Fall taking my ride in this antique biplane. What an amazing experience to take in the area I’ve grown up in all my life, but see it from a different vantage point – the air! Jay was a great guide – made me feel comfortable and at ease the entire time and made sure I saw everything on my list – and even a few things that weren’t on my list! – Jennifer Cieslak

It was fantastic. I love flying old airplanes, especially unusual and rare ones. Yours is in that group. I really appreciate your letting me take the controls. Hope you had a good day and hope to see you again. Truitt

Biplane Ride in GeorgiaI had a fabulous experience taking an airplane ride with PeachtreeCityBiplanes.com! Jay was my pilot for my ride in his 1940 Meyers OTW. That plane was a beast! It was amazing flying over Peachtree City. Jay pointed out many cool things during our flight. For example: He showed me Zach Brown’s house! Overall, it was a beautiful evening and a great experience. Most importantly an extremely soft landing! I would recommend everyone take a ride with Jay at least once! – Brit

Big Cub SmileMy son had a fantastic experience flying for the first time in a small plane. He turned twelve yesterday, and the flight was my birthday present to him since he recently told me he wanted to become a pilot. He could not stop talking about what he saw and felt on our way home to Atlanta. I was not on the plane with him, but treasured the experience as much as he did! Thank you, and please take good care of that plane so that many more can enjoy a flight in the Piper Cub. – Harry and Michael R.

Thank you so much for taking me up in the Cub. You were so calming, I wasn’t even nervous. The view was incredible and I got some great pictures. Thanks again for a great experience. – Lori

90 and planning for 95 birthday ride

Thank you so much for making Dad’s 90th birthday such a wonderful day for him, as well as his family and friends.  All he wanted for this special birthday was a ride in a biplane.  Through your thoughtfulness and professionalism, you provided that and so much more.  He was able to see the places he chose from the air, and he has not stopped smiling since the flight.  He will always remember this birthday, and plans to keep your date to celebrate his 95th in your biplane.  -Paula Hale, daughter of Larry Meaders

Testimonial - Peachtree City BiPlanesMy husband won best husband award for surprising me with this flight yesterday for my birthday. It has always been a dream of mine to fly a plane. Never got around to getting a license and don’t know that I have the time and resources to do that right now with teenagers in the house. This was PERFECT!!! You have an immaculate spotless plane and are the best instructor. Loved the smooth ride with no bumps and chance to fly overhead my house and Pinewood. Of course bragging rights that I flew a plane was the best! Thanks again for making this the best birthday present yet 🙂 – Jane

It’s not every day that you meet someone and within an hour, you are flying in a plane with him, but Jay will make you feel comfortable and at home is his airplane. He is very knowledgeable and experienced with thousands of flight hours under his belt. He told me what the plane was doing and pointed out everything along the way. Flying in the plane was like a scenic step back in time…you can’t beat the open cockpit and can see for miles and miles on a clear day. There is no doubt that I would definitely do this again! – AJ

Peachtree City Anniversary Gift

Best Anniversary Gift

I had the pleasure and awesome experience today to meet a fantastic guy and even better pilot Jay Herrin. My wife got me a great anniversary gift that I won’t soon forget. I got to fly with Jay in his awesome 1940 Meyers OTW Bi-Plane. It was an honor to be able fly in this fantastic piece history and even take the controls for a little while. What a great way to have a unique experience and see the surrounding area from an open cockpit in a vintage airplane. Jay has that unique ability to make you feel safe and comfortable even if you’re brand new to flying. Thanks again for an awesome day Jay!! – Greg

My grandson had the thrill of his life and a forever childhood memory flying with Peachtree City Biplanes.  The airplane is unique and the flight was safe, affordable, and a wonderful experience.  There’s nothing like it to help teach self confidence and open one’s eyes to the possibilities the future can hold.  Many thanks to our competent, safe, and courteous pilot, Jay Herrin. Thanks again for flying Grayson. – John

This experience was by far my favorite team event yet! Riding in (and flying!) the 1946 Cub was such a unique opportunity and definitely one I won’t forget. Jay and his friends were so knowledgeable and went out of their way to ensure we had a great time. Thank you! – F. Hunt

Jeffrey gets a BiPlane rideI want to thank you for the amazing experience you have given Jeffrey riding and flying (lol) in your beautiful biplane. He was diagnosed with cancer April of 2014, and as you can imagine he hasn’t had that many good days. But Sunday during and after his ride with you, he had the biggest smile on his face. I can’t thank you enough. It was very interesting hearing from you about your plane and how rare it is. He is still talking about it. So thank you so much and he will be doing it again very soon.

Tony GeasleyI was fortunate to take a summer evening flight in the Myers biplane. I was a bit apprehensive of the open cockpit particular on takeoff but it was a great trip and adventure. The sight of Fayette
County and the view of Atlanta were great. Jay was a great pilot and tour guide. If you have never experienced an open aircraft you need to go. – Tony Geasley

THANK YOU for a wonderful experience for Sera. She was so excited – and a little nervous – but she loved it and I don’t think her feet are on the ground even yet. What a great birthday present for her. I plan to do it for the other grandkids when they get big enough to see out of the cockpit. Thanks for making me the Grandmother extraordinaire. Thanks again, Kathy

151013-StacyBennetI just want to thank you again for a amazing experience you gave my husband for his 40th birthday! You have made me the wife of the year. He is still talking about it and will be for some time to come. Our boys were so happy to meet you as well. After first meeting you they knew their dad was in good hands. I’m sure I can speak for all of us when I say we will be continuing to tell everybody about this experience. Warmest Regards, Stacy B

Another BiPlane in PTC
I took my girlfriend to Peachtree City Biplanes for her first time in a plane. Talk about stoked, she had a blast. Her words ” it was breath taking.” Worth every penny. Jay and John were the coolest. Made her feel at ease when the nerves started kicking in. Thank you so much guys. It was freaking awesome. Definitely gonna be coming back. – Justin

Jay is a really, really nice guy and exceptional pilot. He was very patient and answered every question. The day I flew with Jay the weather was perfect and flying in the Meyers OTW was an awesome experience. It is so different than flying in a Cessna or Piper type aircraft; open cockpit, wind in your hair, two wings, the low rumble-purr of the radial engine … a truly outstanding experience. This is a “must do” for your bucket list.

Our team had an incredible time with Peachtree City Biplanes and never could have imagined how amazing everything would look from an open cockpit from the air! It was a beautiful day and it forced each of us to step out of our comfort zone and support each other. If you are a Walking Dead Fan you will enjoy being able to see different sites from the show from the air! I would highly recommend any team looking for a team building opportunity to consider this. We were all able to check an item of our bucket lists and that’s because of Peachtree City Biplanes. Thank you so much for the amazing experience 🙂 –
Laura, Tara, Kristin and Jennifer

Had the absolute pleasure once again to go flying with Jay in his fantastic 1940 Meyers OTW bi-plane. It’s not everyday you get to step back in time and fly in a piece of history. Jay makes it so much fun and makes you feel comfortable even if you have never been flying before. My wife’s step Dad also went flying the same day and was very nervous having a slight fear of heights. Jay made him feel at ease and he decided to go up and had a great time. Thanks for the great day! I’ll definitely be coming back. –Greg Heinisch

Today I had the distinct pleasure of having Reverend Jim Chambers aboard for an afternoon Biplane ride. This ride today will easily rate as one of the “high points” of my aviation career. Reverend Jim did most of the flying himself and was without question, one of the “coolest” guys I have ever met! My sincere thanks to another good friend, Jim Robinson, for arranging this ride and being a major part of a fantastic aviation experience for all of us. -Jay Herrin

My wife surprised me with a biplane ride for my birthday. I was excited and knew it would be fun, and as it turned out it was FANTASTIC!
Jay is an experienced pilot flying everything from props to 747’s. His passion for flying was evident as he made the entire experience all about me.
The open cockpit gives you a sense of freedom and is great stress therapy. The slow speed of the plane allows you to take in everything as Jay pointed out all of the landmarks. After a few instructions Jay allowed me to actually fly the plane!
This experience will provide me with a lifetime of memories for me and pleasure to my wife from my excitement.
Thanks for a memorable experience and I am already planning my next flight.

Ok I just want you to know if you are thinking about flying let me just say it is awesome!!!!!!! It’s good for people of all age groups. It is the experience of a lifetime. It is so fun I can guarantee you will almost definitely love it. Not to mention it is beautiful up there. Even if you are afraid of heights (which I am by the way, so I know what I am talking about) it will still probably be the most fun you will ever have. Samuel Cunningham age 12, I flew 5/7/2016

It was a surprise birthday gift…for someone who has everything according
to my husband. He knows how much I love to fly in small planes but I had
never been in an open cockpit bi-plane before. Trust me, it is quite a
different experience. It gives you an exhilarating sense of freedom. You
just want to stay up there forever.
Jay is fantastic. He is a great host, great guy and great pilot. He makes
the event all about you. EVERYONE should do this. Don’t even think about
putting off something this special.

This past Sunday my sister and I had the opportunity to visit with Jay of Peachtree City Biplanes down at Falcon Field. This was a special occasion as our dad had just turned 85 the day before and as an avid aviation fan the chance to go to the airport and take a plane ride is always a happy occasion. The day started out perfect as we were blessed with incredibly clear blue skies and calm winds. Once we arrived at the field things only got better as we met Jay with his warm, out going personality. After a short time of getting acquainted we were off for a short tour of the field and then to his hanger for a history lesson on both his vintage planes. Although the Meyers bi-plane was undergoing its annual inspection, Jay already had the Piper out side and primed for flight. For many folks our next challenge might have been a tad over whelming as dad has some challenges with his leg strength and balance from Post Polio Syndrome however to Jay this was just another step in the process. With the use of a step stool as well as both his and my muscle we were able to prop, prod and cajole dad up and into the front seat and just like that off they were into the “wild blue yonder”.

Once back on the ground and getting dad out of the Cub both my sister and I also took flight for a beautiful ride around Peachtree City and Sanoia. Having done some flying over the years, the professionalism and warmth that Jay brings to his service is outstanding. From the moment we shook hands in front of the terminal it was like we were old friends getting back together for a joy ride. If you are looking for an over the top experience that takes you over the hills and trees I highly recommend Jay and Peachtree City Biplanes, you won’t be disappointed. Thank you Jay for an awesome time that we will never forget. – Norm

Thank you so much for taking me up in your plane. I was nervous at first, but once we were up I never wanted to come back down. Seeing all the walking dead sites was awesome, but I liked that I got to fly your plane myself the best. Best birthday present ever. Hope I get to do it again some time. Maybe I can even take flying lessons some day so I can fly myself.

I had a great time flying with with Jaybird! It felt like I was flying through history because of the historical value of the plane, an experience impossible to describe. I had the amazing opportunity to see many popular landmarks around the PTC area including many locations of The Walking Dead filming that are only visible from the sky. I truly enjoyed my ride in this historic biplane and I HIGHLY recommend the experience to anyone! Thank you Mr.Jaybird for allowing me to fly with you!

Mr. Jay thank you so much for my first open air plane ride. Getting to fly over the Walking Dead sets in a biplane was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. As someone who is interested in aviation as a career, your knowledge on the subject was very helpful. Thank you again for the awesome journey! – Rebecca

I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful evening. I had just an amazing time and I just wanted to say thank you for letting me fly because it was truly an amazing experience that I will remember forever. My Mom and Dad have their pilot’s licenses, and I always wanted to get mine as soon as I’m old enough, but I definitely am after flying with you! Thank you again for the wonderful flight. – Faith

We had a great time. Thanks so much for being so accommodating with the schedule, trying to fly when the weather was as good as it was possible to be. This was my granddaughter’s first plane ride and she has been beyond excited since. Not sure which one of us had more fun. Thanks a lot. – John
