All about him! Stay & Fly

No one will think of this.   Surprise him with a unique 'Holiday' or 'any day' Gift Certificate for a stay at a classic, handsome Inn on the CT Shoreline.

And, include a 20 minute ride in a World War II trainer plane, a 1941 biplane that seats one passenger and a pilot or a 30 minute ride in a 2-seater both offered by Chester Charter. How much fun - especially if he is a history buff.  This will be brag material for sure ....

Contact Chester Charter for details and fees.
