Cool new stuff at Attitude Aviation!
Piper J-3 Cub: Yep, the Cub's back! Flying at its simplest best! If you hanker for a taste of the old low and slow, this Cub's for you. We are now offering Private Pilot training in the Cub. Get your license the old Seat'o the Pants way. The Cub also qualifies for Light Sport, so if you're interested in getting your Light Sport Aircraft License, we can now take you all the way to your goal in the Cub. No matter what your qualification--heck, you don't even have to a pilot--you absolutely have to go for a flight in this nostalgic classic.
Great Lakes N3587L: Chris Harrison is the proud new owner of a fabulous Great Lakes Biplane, and it's for rent at Attitude! It has two open cockpits, sticks, and sports a very loud, orange paint scheme. It has an excellent heater for winter, and it has total air conditioning for summer. It has a Garmin 430 GPS/Comm, and Chris just installed Hooker harnesses and belts. The Lakes is fully aerobatic, including inverted fuel and oil, and can do anything a Super Decathlon can do, but it's a lot more fun. There's something about an open cockpit biplane.... You need to experience this airplane.
Waco Classic: The Waco is back on line with a new engine. (The old one simply hit the time for overhaul.) It runs great! Who would have thought the lead time on a rebuilt engine was nine months?
Marchetti SF-260: We have a Marchetti! Yes, you can fly the Ferrari of the Air at Attitude! This sexy Italian is available and ready to make you look good. Matt Doyel is the new owner of this very fast and maneuverable machine. The Marchetti has fours seats (2+2). It cruises at 200 mph TAS. It is IFR. It is aerobatic. It is everything. Everybody who has ever flown a Marchetti says the same thing: "If you could only fly one airplane, this is the airplane you would fly."
Marchetti SF-260 #2: Not a typo. We have a another Marchetti!
Rich Perkins has purchased a second Marchetti for Attitude! It is not on line yet, but will be by July 2009. We're doing an engine overhaul, cockpit upgrades, and adding a video system, because...
AIR COMBAT IS COMING TO ATTITUDE!!!
In July 2009, Attitude will begin offering full blown Combat Sorties in the two Marchetti SF-260's. We're talkin' roll-your-socks-down, high performance 1v1 combat! Aerial Dogfighting with you at the controls. You don't even have to be a pilot to experience the ultimate thrill game. Just show up. Each aircraft will have a smoke system so you can see when you get a good kill and a multi camera video system so you can show everybody what you did. Your friends will be soooo envious. Of course, after you show them the video, you can challenge them to Aerial Combat. Bring It On!!
Super Decathlon: Not so Cool News: The SUPER DECATHLON sold :( We need a
replacement. Interested in a leaseback?
OWN AN AIRCRAFT AND MAKE MONEY?: If you own or would like to own an aircraft, a "leaseback" arrangement might just be the way to make it more affordable and maybe even profitable. If you think you'd like to put an aircraft on line with Attitude for rental, see our page on "Leaseback Opportunities", and contact Rich Perkins at 925-456-2276, AttAvJRP@aol.com.
Whether you're into getting your Private Pilot License, Instrument Rating, Tailwheel endorsement, want to go upside-down, or just want to go see the world from our rare perspective, Attitude Aviation offers the most complete and versatile fleet of aircraft in Northern California---maybe in the whole world.
Please Contact Us for more information on checking out our great airplanes.
EMPLOYMENT: Attitude is always looking for highly qualified instructors. If you think you have what it takes to teach here, contact Rich Perkins. We especially want to talk to instructors who are qualified in tailwheels and aerobatics, although we do hire others. Military experience is a plus. We generally are willing to develop one less experienced instructor at a time as our contribution to the future of aviation.
