Barnstorming is essentially Stunt Jumping in a plane or helicopter, and entails flying a plane under a certain object, usually a bridge or sign. As with Stunt Jumps, you must be traveling at a certain speed in order to trigger the barnstorm, as well as a certain height. After completing each barnstorm, there will be an onscreen notification that you were successful.
Saints Row 2Edit
When beginning the barnstorm, stars will be displayed on the screen. It is not necessary to earn 3 Gold Stars, but the Stars displayed on screen are a helpful indicator that you are in the correct location. As with all Diversions which use the Star Rating System, if you crash into something before completing the current diversion, you will have to start over.
There are 35 Barnstorming locations, but they are not marked on the Map, or visible in any way. They can be approached from any direction, but sometimes it is easier to trigger the barnstorm when approaching from one side than the other.
Saints Row: The ThirdEdit
There are 50 Barnstorming locations in Saints Row: The Third.
Additional bonus points can be earned for performing a Barnstorm while upside down or knife-edge.

In Saints Row 2, only respect is earned, but in Saints Row: The Third, cash is awarded for each barnstorm.
In Saints Row 2 the Maverick Goose achievement is awarded for completing all Barnstorms. There is no achievement for this in Saints Row: The Third.
- The name of the achievement "Maverick Goose", is a reference to the film Top Gun, as the main characters are nicknamed "Maverick" and "Goose".
- Barnstorming is a real life activity which is named after flying a plane through a barn. Although there is a barn in the game, it is used for a Stunt Jump, not a Barnstorm.
- One of the easiest ways to complete all Barnstorms is to use the Destroy UFO.
