Our Tico Belle at the 2014 AirShow

The Valiant Air Command Offers Rides in our
WWII Normandy Invasion Veteran -- C-47 "Tico Belle"

C-47 Tico Belle


The Valiant Air Command is proud to announce that one of its most venerable warbirds has returned to flight once again; the C-47 "Tico Belle." From the Normandy invasion to Cherbourg, to Arnhem, to Bastogne, to the Berlin Airlift and much more, this aircraft was there -- over 65 years ago.

Now, YOU can experience all this history as a special and unique present for yourself, or someone you love. For only $175 you not only get a ride in our local area, but if you are not already a member of the Valiant Air Command Warbird Museum, we'll give you an individual one year membership; and for only $225, we'll give you a family membership (a $100 value). These Museum memberships entitle you to free admission to the museum and to the annual 3-day Warbird Airshow, as well as other "members only" offers and opportunities.

Call or email (vacwarbirds@bellsouth.net) us for additional information, or to get on our reserve list and we will notify you of the flight schedule. Don't miss this exciting opportunity when the Tico Belle, returns to the skies with you aboard; complete with Normandy invasion identification stripes. You will be able to look out and truly imagine what it must have been like on that fateful June 6th, 1944. A day when the freedom of a world hung in the balance as she made her way in the pre-dawn darkness towards the beaches of Normandy; part of the largest aerial invasion armada the world has ever seen.

The Valiant Air Command Museum is located at the Space Coast Regional Airport at 6600 Tico Road in Titusville.

Lt. Col. Hiram Mann, 1921-2014

Hiram Mann - Tuskegee Airman

The Valiant Air Command is honored to join the nation and especially the military aviation community in in honoring the life and achievements of Lt. Col. Hiram E. Mann, USAF, Ret. Lt. Col. Mann was an original Tuskegee Airman, who flew P-51 combat missions in Italy with the famed 332nd Fighter Group. He represents a group of unique American heroes, who faced not only our nation's enemies in combat, but also rampant discrimination at home. Their record in combat and the dignity and steadfast courage with which they earned their right to fly as US Army Air Force pilots, is a testimony to their will, their courage and to the ideals which they held dear, both in World War II and through the rest of their lives.

Lt. Col. Mann was a frequent participant in Valiant Air Command events, most recently in our 2014 TICO airshow, which honored the Tuskegee Airman. His career as a combat pilot and his subsequent careers as an educator and spokesperson have rightfully earned him our admiration and respect. We are especially proud to have inducted Lt. Col. Mann as a honorary life member of the Valiant Air Command.
