Adults and children can ride through local skies this month in a historic Ford Tri-Motor airplane during the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Fly the Ford tour stops in San Luis Obispo County.
The association is offering 30-minute rides (with 15 minutes in the air) in the 1929-era aircraft known as America’s first mass-produced airliner, according to the group’s website.
The aircraft will be making two stops over four days in San Luis Obispo County on its multi-legged tour across the country.
The plane will be at the Paso Robles Municipal Airport at 4912 Wing Way in Paso Robles on April 17 and 18; and at the San Luis County County Regional Airport at 945 Airport Drive in San Luis Obispo on April 19 and 20.
Rides will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.
Advance tickets are $70 for adults and $50 for children age 17 and younger; and $75 for adults and $50 for children at the airport on the day of the event. Children age 2 and younger ride for free in an adult's lap.
Adults must accompany riders age 15 and younger.
