Guess, now i have another goal, huh. Been wondering how long before i couldn't hold it any more and had to fly in one even if didn't get to log it in my log book. BTW, what category are older military planes such as these? Are they single engine land with instrument, high performance, complex endorsements? It is an endorsement for each type of plane? Now I need to find FARS online can't imagine only using the book these days.

It is utility category, SEL with tailwheel endorsement. The other warbirds we have are either experimental (ie, we build our own parts) or utility, all tailwheel endorsements. Actually, the most prized war bird we have is an SBD Dauntless. It is only one of three flying in the world, completely original. It was built in 1943 and saw action in the South Pacific. The P-51 is in D Day livery.

You can always come to Atlanta and get a kick a$$ ride right here. We also take it to Sun and Fun in Lakeland every year too.
