U-Fly SkyTour of San Francisco and Golden Gate Bridge from San Carlos

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Head down to the San Carlos Airport, located just south of San Francisco proper, for your 50-minute flying adventure. 

    Check in with the flight team and meet your pilot, then listen to a safety briefing and orientation on what to expect. Depending on the trip and availability, you'll fly in a Cessna or Piper aircraft. 

    Climb aboard the plane, accompanied by your pilot and passenger, taxi and take off safely from the airstrip. Climb to approximately 1,500 feet (457 meters) and head west, arcing over the coastal town of Half Moon Bay on your way north toward the city. 

    Fly over the towering skyscrapers in downtown San Francisco, the blue waters of the bay, the orange stretch of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island. Over your radio headsets, you'll hear flying instructions and commentary on the sights from your pilot. 

    At the conclusion of your 50-minute flight, loop back to land safely at San Carlos Airport.

    We were fortunate to have a beautiful day and our pilot, Peter, did a great job showing us everything. Not bumpy, nice and smooth. We did the Ultimate Skytour over the Bay Area and were very pleased.
