"New Perspectives on Fall Foliage"
Gain a fresh appreciation for the landscape... charter the 1941 Stearman bi-plane or take the family up in a Cessna 172.
Chester Charter currently offers two ways to enjoy fall foliage: History buffs can go up in the airport's own World War II trainer, a 1941 biplane that seats one passenger and a pilot. Meanwhile, couples, families, and small groups might prefer chartering a Cessna, which can accommodate about three people for their tour.
...Not only can passengers design their own flight plan, but they are also sure to see sights that don't exist in other parts of New England....swamp maples don bright red leaves...tons of inlets, islands and other topographical gems that you can't appreciate from the road...

They come with their memories and tell wonderful - sometimes poignant stories - of their adventures... some who haven't flown a plane since they served in the war - take the controls...
