How fast does it go?
One of the top questions our clients always want to know is how fast our North American SNJ-5 warbird aircraft goes.
On a dive through the air we can reach 260mph. However, the FAA limits us to 226 mph. When we’re in the air on the Admiral’s Warbird Adventure or Ensign’s Warbird Experience we like to go around 140 mph in the air to give us time to take in the Hawaiian scenery.
Plus, the aircraft is 71 years old. It’s like Grandma’s car on Sunday. Once we reach our cruising tour altitude of 1500 feet, we like to do just that…cruise.
Pearl Harbor Warbirds offers the best Hawai‘i flight adventure tours available. Be immersed in the details of the infamous attack on Pearl Harbor and soar above the important sites that played a part in the “Day of Infamy.” Relive history as you retrace the steps of the Army and Navy airmen in the days following the bombing. Fly on some of the same routes the Japanese attackers used into the airfields at Wheeler, Kāne‘ohe and Bellows. There are many air tours in Hawai‘i, but only one warbird airplane flight. Located in Honolulu, Hawai‘i Pearl Harbor Warbirds provides a personal historical experience making it one of the best O‘ahu attractions.
