What you'll do

This isn't just a plane tour. It starts upon arrival in your car to the property where the guests will be greeted by airport ground control and directed where to park as if they had just landed their private jet and were being directed to the terminal building.

Will talk a few minutes about the history of Project Freedom. Where the idea came from and how the airplanes got here. As we walk up to the first airplane an MD-80, I like to ask what do they think they will see inside as the conversation continues.

The first thing people notice is that the airplane seats aren't there and it's quite spacious inside. Having a regular size household bathroom with shower, sink and toilet is always unexpected to see. And those overhead cabinets really work good for dishes and towels. The master bedroom is of course first class.

As we move over to the next airplane called Spirit. The guest will be taking unique pictures while sitting in a completely refurbished cockpit from 1979. This is where the tour becomes exciting as the guest are promoted to pilot for an interactive flight from here to your dream destination without ever leaving the ground.

When I was 15 my dad would drive me in the car down to Arlington Airport so I could get in an airplane and go cruising through the air. I finally got my private pilots license with over 90 hours because I had to wait to turn old enough. Later I received an instrument rated license also. I always enjoyed flying and dreamed about being able to convert an airplane into a home. Having built 5 traditional homes from the ground up I gained the experience and confidence to turn my Dream into a Goal and began Project Freedom on 04-01-2011.

This was a súper wow experience for my son and I. I will definitely recommend this to my friends and is now a part of my to go places when I get visitors in Houston/Katy. Honestly speaking I think the $25 per person is just symbolic because you can see how Joe enjoys and is passionate to take you around. Muchas gracias Joe, you made out or a simple day to become another great memory with my son!!! KUDOS TO YOUR PROJECT FREEDOM!!!

This was a mind-blowing experience! We love space and to be able to see inside an old plane, converted to a house with exquisite taste, and another one in the way to be converted, to open it up, touch the buttons, go through secret stairways... it was a fantastic experience and we were lucky to share it with our kids. They will never see a plane in the same way. Joe loves this stuff and made it even better.

This is my favorite Airbnb experience ever! Joe is very warm, creative, and absolutely love airplanes! What you see on this page is in my opinion a little underselling. If you are ever in Houston, this is something unique to check out!

Joe is an awesome guy! He's so fun and outgoing, you can tell the moment you pull up! His house is so unique and ACTUALLY spacious. He went over his time, we didnt feel rushed and we truly felt welcome and intrigued the whole time. It can get a little hot in the cockpit of the planes (incase this is an issue) but with the windows and breeze it was truly not an issues for us! We loved the simulated flight and hilarious remarks he made. He was even our personal photographer and did an awesome job entertaining our 4 year old! The extra touches and comfort he gave us, makes us want to return! We got some amazing pictures and a lifetime of memories!
